San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis Retires
Last week, medical cannabis advocates bid farewell to outgoing San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis with a New Orleans-style funeral march, complete with a seven-piece brass jazz band.
Dumanis retired from the position she held for more than 14 years on Friday, July 7.
The demonstration was held outside the county’s Hall of Justice in downtown San Diego, as the prosecutor exited the building among a phalanx of law enforcement personnel.
