SEATTLE —

Seattle police say they seized 40 to 45 marijuana plants from a public park over the weekend, but don't plan to investigate further because pot enforcement is a "low, low, low priority."

King County sheriff's deputies called Seattle police on Saturday morning to say they'd found the plants growing in a 9-acre park called Llandover Woods Greenspace, on the Shoreline border. The Seattle Police Department said in a blog post Monday that officers seized and destroyed the plants because they can't be cultivated publicly, and because "it's not that kind of greenspace."

The department says it's unusual for people to surreptitiously grow marijuana plants in public parks in Seattle, especially during the cold and rainy winters.

Washington voters legalized the possession of up to an ounce of marijuana last fall.
