Seattle’s attorney apologizes for taking bags associated with marijuana to the office


Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes upon Friday apologized for violating place of work rules by bringing bags associated with marijuana he purchased from newly-opened Washington state pot shops returning to his office. Holmes was major people in line earlier this week since the first few marijuana retail shops opened across Washington state, exactly where voters in 2012 sanctioned the sale of cannabis to adults for recreational use under a steeply taxed and regulated system. “At the end of the business day, I took the cannabis home and left it generally there, still unopened, before I took part in the second Community Walk of the Mayor’s Summer of Safety. inch Holmes on Friday apologized, volunteered to donate $3, 000 to some downtown homeless shelter, and voiced his on-going support for the california’s landmark initiative. On Tuesday, a suit-and-tie clad Holmes could be observed holding up a brown paper handbag carrying marijuana he bought moments before at Seattle’s first container shop for a sea of journalists.
