Marijuana may now be legal in Washington State, but that doesn’t mean bringing weed to the office is a good idea.
“I intended my public purchase at Seattle’s first legal store to bolster the transition [from an illegal to legal marijuana market],” Holmes said in a statement. “When I brought the unopened marijuana to City offices – trying to keep up with a busy schedule — I nonetheless violated the City’s rules.”
He volunteered his own punishment of sorts.
“I have discussed the violation with the city personnel department director, and I have volunteered to donate $3,000 to the Downtown Emergency Service Center,” Holmes said. “I apologize to my employees, all city employees and to the public.”
