Dude ! Seattle City Attorney Says “Whoops, sorry” For Bringing His Stash To Work…

But did he bring extra Cheetos ?…

cannabisSEATTLE – City Attorney Pete Holmes has apologized for bringing marijuana to his “drug-free workplace,” the city of Seattle.

“When I brought the unopened marijuana to city offices — trying to keep up with a busy schedule — I nonetheless violated the city’s rules,” Holmes said in a news release this afternoon. “I apologize to my employees, all city employees and to the public.”

In the news release, Holmes said he “volunteered to donate $3,000 to the Downtown Emergency Service Center” as penance.

Holmes purchased marijuana at Cannabis City Tuesday, the first day pot could be sold at legal retail stores.

“Today marijuana sales became legal,” he told the eager crowd of future pot purchasers and media Tuesday. “I’m here to personally exercise that new freedom.”

Holmes later walked out of the shop with two, two-gram bags of OG’s Pearl. He said he was keeping one bag for “posterity” and one for “personal enjoyment when it’s appropriate.”

Kimberly Mills, the City Attorney’s office’s spokeswoman, said in an email Holmes is not exempt from city workplace rules, but that he “never intended to use (the marijuana he bought) any time soon.”

According to the city’s Drug Free Workplace policy, though pot was legalized by Initiative 502 in December 2012, and medical marijuana has been legal since 1998, possession is still prohibited. The policy booklet, partially written in Comic Sans says:  (read more)

    Apparently the attorney was just as irresponsible with his pot at home as he was in the work place. He didn’t secure it at home and left it out on the coffee table as a conversation starter. Little did he know his poor puddy mistook it for cat nip and that’s why a cross eyed cat will greet him at the door.

    It’s a medicine without the backing of big pharma, thus illegal in most states.
    Now, if it were synthetically produced rather than grown and had billions of dollars in patented medicine sales and had side effects ten times as bad as what it purports to heal, yeah, under those circumstances, the lawyers and conservatards would worship it

    I’m wondering how his violation of workplace policy cameto light in the first place. Was this a case of a “snitch: who had some political axe to grind, and saw a chance to make a big deal out of nothing? Or,did he wave his stash around with glee,flaunting the rules that every one is expected to follow? ,

    I don’t ever intend on committing a crime in Seattle (or even visiting the place), but fantasizing for a moment that I was charged with a crime there, I’d sure hope to get this guy as my prosecutor – especially if he spends the night before the court date smokin’ his stash! 🙂

    One problem is that all regular weed users will be DUI all the time. In Washington, the standard is 5 nanograms per ml of blood. Regular weed users will typically be driving at about 3 x that level because THC is fat soluble, unlike alcohol, which is water soluble. You can’t get stoned and “sleep it off” overnight.

      Great point. The question of “impairment” comes into play when assessing the legality of “being under the influence”. How do various jurisdictions determine,or define, impairment? The simple measure of THC or THC metabolites may not be enough,since they both remain present in an individual’s system long after consumption and long after actual impairment fades.

      And who’s to say that a veritable moron who is totally devoid of any traces is a better driver than someone of normal mental ability that has “traces” of a substance in the blood, but may not be “impaired”?

    Smoking dope is a dumb idea. But it should be legal.

      I share your assessment. Life is hard enough without voluntarily handicapping your faculties with chemical impairment. But being “free” includes the “freedom to fail” if you’re stupid enough to choose that path.
