Cannabis and Alcohol

We all knew it was going to happen sooner or later.  In the past we have had guests that consumed a bit too much alcohol and as a result we have seen fights break out, people sent to the hospital in ambulances, a groom miss most of the reception (bachelor party the night before), and even one newlywed couple yelling at each other about getting their marriage annulled 2/3 of the way into the reception.  No doubt about it alcohol can seriously mess up your wedding day or party.

In Colorado we now have cannabis aka marijuana available  either to smoke or eat.  Many planners have said they are seeing a huge increase in cannabis/alcohol consumption that are turning a fun event into medical emergencies.  Many out-of-state folks have no idea how much cannabis is safe and are consuming too much.

One planner had a bride spend five hours in the hospital before the doctors were able to adequately treat her.  She had refused to admit that she had mixed cannabis and alcohol together.

When planning your next party or wedding please give careful consideration as to whether or not you want to encourage cannabis use and what measures you can take to deal with any issues that may arise as a result.
