Tacoma voters make pot offenses low priority

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) -- Tacoma voters approved a ballot initiative seeking to make marijuana offenses the lowest law enforcement priority in the city.

Backers say they pushed the measure in Tuesday's election to protect medical marijuana patients.

The News Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/v1F8Xy ) officials have said they don't target marijuana offenses now and the measure likely won't change what they do.
