SEATTLE, Wa. -- Where there is smoke, there is fire. Where there is fire and weed, there is sure to be a weed-hating cop not far behind. At least that was the case in Seattle, Washington.

The city's attorney, Pete Holmes, is nipping this problem in the bud, so to speak.

Holmes announced his office would be dismissing all public use of marijuana tickets issued through July of 2014, because 80-percent of those tickets were issued by a single officer. The officer would apparently flip a coin at times to decide which pot-smoker he'd ticket.

Not only will those public tokin'-tickets go up in smoke,  but officer buzz-kill has been reassigned and taken off patrol until the city investigates. Guess that's one way to "weed" out the bad cops!
