Seattle City Attorney Proposes Marijuana Home Grows, Lounges And Merging Medical System

WASHINGTON:  Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes on Monday issued a sweeping policy proposal that calls for allowing people to grow pot at home, establishing vapor lounges and folding unregulated medical-cannabis dispensaries into the new state recreational system.

Holmes was a prime sponsor of Initiative 502, passed by voters in 2012 to legalize and regulate recreational marijuana.

His call comes just before the start of a legislative session in which the future of medical marijuana shops could be hotly debated.

“They’re creating a public safety nightmare, frankly, and they’re undercutting the 502 stores because they’re unregulated and untaxed,” Holmes told KIRO 7.
