Danielle Geralds and Nile Hunt III are set to have a unique wedding that celebrates their love and passion for cannabis. The couple recently won a giveaway contest hosted by The Greenhouse of Walled Lake, the first recreational cannabis dispensary in Oakland County. Their wedding package, worth $40,000, includes a weed-infused menu, a bud bar, and even marijuana leaves mixed into the bride’s bouquet and floral centerpieces. The groom, a decorated Navy veteran, will wear a forest green suit to match the plant’s healing properties, which helped him recover from physical and emotional injuries sustained in Afghanistan. The couple hopes their wedding will help normalize cannabis use and showcase its many benefits.

State of Michigan Employees No Longer Drug Tested
In a unanimous vote, the Michigan Civil Service Commission has decided to no longer test new hires for recreational marijuana use. Since its legalization in late 2018, individuals seeking employment with the state of Michigan have been subject to marijuana testing. However, this change means that regulations will now treat recreational marijuana use in a similar manner to alcohol use, and it will not be grounds for disqualification. Denise Polliciella, founder of Cannabis Attorneys of Michigan, highlighted the equal legal status of marijuana and alcohol in Michigan, emphasizing that excluding marijuana users from employment opportunities disregards capable and qualified individuals. Under the new rules, individuals previously denied employment due to a failed marijuana test can now reapply. It is important to note that this policy change does not apply to law enforcement officers, healthcare providers, and employees operating heavy machinery.
