FLORIDA - A newlywed bride and the caterer from her wedding have been arrested after a prank went bad. The bride and the caterer allegedly hatched a plan to serve food laced with marijuana at her wedding ceremony in February.

Local authorities and emergency services were called to the wedding venue after several guests reported that they were feeling unwell after eating. The guests were unaware of the cannabis served in the food.

The groom was apparently left in the dark about the prank and when law enforcement officials approached him, he told police "with a blank expression" while stuttering that he did not know the food contained the substance. They face charges of delivery of marijuana and culpable negligence under Florida's anti-tampering laws.

The two women could face five years in prison or $500 fine (R7 800) if convicted, CBS News reported.

Khoisan man arrested for 'growing cannabis' at Union Buildings feels violated

Briefly News also reported police arrested a man for growing cannabis at the seat of government – the Union Buildings in Tshwane. The man, known only as King Khoisan SA, has spoken out over his detention and lambasted the South African Police Service (SAPS) for invading his privacy.

He and several others have been perching themselves on the lawns near the statue of Nelson Mandela since 2018.

SABC News reported that Khoisan and Donovan Manuel, who was also arrested by police, appeared briefly in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Thursday. Briefly News understands the two men form part and parcel of a small group that has lived in tents on the lawn at the monument.
