Seattle city attorney admits he broke drug-free-workplace rule by buying on first day of sales

Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes has admitted he broke a drug-free-workplace rule when he bought marijuana on the first day of legal sales in Washington state.

Holmes has been a big supporter of the legal marijuana law, and he says he wanted to be one of the first customers at Seattle's Cannabis City on Tuesday to honor what he called a "tectonic shift" in policy. He says he then brought the two unopened packages back to City Hall before taking them home.

The next day, the city's personnel department issued a memo reminding employees they can't have marijuana when they're on official business or at city offices.

Holmes issued an apology Friday and said he volunteered to donate $3,000 to the Downtown Emergency Service Center, an organization that provides housing for alcoholic, mentally ill or otherwise vulnerable people.
