Many areas of Washington State have deprioritized drug crimes, so much so, suspects are shocked when they are arrested for small amounts of drugs. Because of this disparity in enforcement, many arrested for drug crimes in Central Washington are first time offenders. Drug cases are unique in that they take a lot of law enforcement time and money to prosecute, but don't have any victims. Law Enforcement tries to mitigate this unjustified cost of enforcement by seizing personal property and cash.
