Weed-themed weddings in Colorado are all the rage now for the pot-friendly -- but apparently cannabis has been a part of nuptials in Egypt since the 1930s. At least, it was part of one Cairo bride's wedding plan -- though it didn't seem to work out well for her according to this tiny March 22, 1935 blurb in the Eagle Valley Enterprise.
I can't blame her -- and in the interest of full transparency, I was doing the exact same thing on my wedding day, only I didn't get busted. Of course, I didn't leave hash sticking out of my pocket while walking around town with cops, either.
