When Colorado legalised cannabis for recreational use in January, enterprising Denver florist Bec Koop launched a business called Buds and Blossoms, which incorporates cannabis into wedding floral displays.

Bec Koop: I used to work at a medicinal cannabis dispensary, and I have a floral business, so I thought Buds and Blossoms would be a fun way to bring cannabis into the wedding scene. Guests could take the bud from their bouquet or boutonniere and enjoy their wedding weed on the wedding night.

A lot of ingenuity is required in this business, in spite of legalisation. There's still a lot of stigma you never know how people are going to react. Once the regulations relax a bit more, I can see a huge influx in these kinds of weddings coming through.



My clients come from all walks of life. You get the old hippies from the 70s having their second or third weddings, then you get the younger generation who are very accepting.

I think the need for education is huge in this industry. People need to talk about it and ask questions, even if it seems embarrassing.

It's all about moderation and responsibility. The time when marijuana can get out of control is when people are ingesting it in the form of edibles. If you buy a bottle of whisky, are you going to go home and drink the whole bottle? No, so don't eat the whole cookie.

I believe cannabis will soon be legal across the whole US in some shape or form. A lot of states might accept it for medicinal use only, but I can see places like California, Florida and even New York making it legal for recreational use.
