Apparently Meghan Markle Gave Out Marijuana Gift Bags at Her First Wedding

Earlier this year actress Meghan Markle married Prince Harry of England in the biggest royal wedding since Prince William tied the knot with Kate Middleton. And while the 2018 royal wedding seemed like quite the event, we actually think Markle's first wedding would've been more fun to attend.

Thomas Markle, father of Meghan, gave an interview with the British newspaper The Daily Mail to talk about his daughter. In the interview, Markle discussed his daughter's first wedding to producer Trevor Engelson in 2011. (The couple divorced a few years later.) The wedding took place in Jamaica, and Markle says that guests at the wedding were given gift bags that contained marijuana.

"It’s illegal, but it’s no big deal in Jamaica," Markle said. "It’s almost customary down there. I don’t smoke weed and to the best of my knowledge nor does Meghan. I don’t know what I did with mine. I think I gave it away. I kept the bag and I use it to keep the sea air off one of my Emmys."

Now to be fair, Markle's relationship to the current Duchess of Sussex is strained. The elder Markle was caught staging paparazzi photos for money earlier this year, and has given a string of paid interviews that have upset the royal family and his daughter. So it's possible the marijuana gift bags are an embellishment Markle's making so his interview gains a little more traction.

But now we're wondering if anyone's ever smoked a joint in Buckingham Palace.

Few other entrepreneurs in the cannabis space have their hands in quite as many ventures as Lorne Gertner. Currently dubbed the "godfather of the Canadian cannabis industry," Gertner told Civilized, "If we could live through normalization, we could change the world." Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
