As states begin to legalize marijuana for recreational use, people are replacing alcohol with the safer substance, marijuana, at events where alcohol is typically a traditional substance, such as at weddings.
Whitney Alexander and John Elledge were married this summer in Oregon, and the couple decided to have an open bar with marijuana instead of alcohol, reported KGW Portland.
“We were shocked by how much people loved it,” said groom John Elledge. “I’m still getting a couple of texts a day from guests who enjoyed the weed tent.” Elledge further noted that: “We made sure we were legal, we know the limit is 8 ounces so we had small amounts of 13 varieties with a budtender controlling consumption.”
The Oregon Liquor Control Commission, which regulates Oregon’s recreational marijuana industry, said that “on private property where no liquor license is involved, it is legal [for adults 21 years or older to consume marijuana].”
