Meghan Markle boasted to friends about giving out marijuana in party bags at her first wedding, it has been claimed.
When Meghan’s friend advised her to buy a special bag for the cannabis, she allegedly replied: ‘Already ordered ’em. And teeny ones for the pot that say ‘shh’.’

In leaked emails the future Duchess of Sussex apparently revealed how she would serve the illegal drug to guests (pictured dancing at the wedding on a beach in Ocho Rios)

The 37-year-old American former actress was referencing small muslin bags she ordered to put the drugs inside, according to the newspaper.
Sources claim Meghan even helped guests at the wedding roll joints and inserted filter tips before placing them in the party bags.
And guests reportedly said Meghan and her first husband, a Hollywood producer, purchased the marijuana through a hotel staffer.
Meghan and Mr Engelson married on a Jamaican beach in September 2011 but divorced two years later.
Earlier this month, Meghan’s father Thomas revealed wedding guests were given marijuana at the wedding. At the time, possession of the drug was illegal in Jamaica.
Award-winning TV lighting director Mr Markle said at the time that he did not smoke his welcome gift, adding: ‘It’s illegal, but it’s no big deal in Jamaica.

‘It’s almost customary down there. I don’t smoke weed and to the best of my knowledge nor does Meghan.’
Mr Markle, who lives by the beach in Mexico, said: ‘I don’t know what I did with mine. I think I gave it away. I kept the bag and I use it to keep the sea air off one of my Emmys.’
Meghan booked all 55 rooms at the luxury Jamaica Inn for the wedding. It was attended by 100 guests including the cast of Suits, the TV legal drama series in which she starred.
Earlier this year Mr Markle, who is now estranged from the Duchess of Sussex, revealed details of the four-day ceremony in order to rubbish claims that he had failed to attend.
He showed the Mail on Sunday the ‘save the date’ invitation which shows his daughter entwined with Mr Engelson on a beach next to palm trees and a bottle of Red Stripe beer.
And he unearthed a photograph of him with his arm around Meghan moments before he walked her down the aisle.

Mr Markle, 74, explained that he did not appear in any of the official pictures from the event because he asked the photographer to focus on the younger guests in their bikinis.
He said: ‘There are no pictures out there of me at the wedding because it was on the beach and everyone else was in their 30s and I was in my 60s.’
Guests were offered ‘beach yoga’ sessions with Miss Markle’s mother Doria Ragland and the couple hosted a ‘beach Olympics’ with events such as tug-of-war and kayaking.
Mr Markle helped pay for the celebration and hosted a brunch on the final day. He also received a special ‘thank you’ for his ‘incredible generosity’.
He did not attend his daughter’s wedding to Prince Harry in Windsor in May after apparently suffering two heart attacks in the weeks before.

He has been accused of faking the episode out of embarrassment over staged paparazzi pictures taken shortly before the ceremony.
But Mr Markle showed a series of private medical bills and letters, saying they proved he was too ill to travel to Britain.
He added: ‘I had two attacks, the second of which the doctor called a widow-maker and nearly killed me.’
Earlier this year, it emerged that Meghan’s nephew Tyler Dooley, 25, was a cannabis farmer in Oregon.
After the Royal Wedding in May, he launched a strain called ‘Markle Sparkle’ to capitalise on Meghan’s new marriage.
