The future Duchess then signed off to the friend with a jokey smiley face.

At the time of the wedding in 2012 any possession of cannabis was illegal in Jamaica.
In 2015 laws were relaxed to make possession of small amounts a “petty offence” unlikely to lead to a criminal conviction.
An insider called Meghan’s first wedding in Jamaica in 2011 a “boozy beach wedding with a magical backdrop” and “an epic weekend under the sun and stars”. But as well as alcohol, there was plenty of weed, too.
Guests said Meghan and first husband Trevor bought marijuana through a member of staff at their hotel.
But a guest added that although she was “very excited” about surprising guests with marijuana, it was more of a gimmick and she did not smoke too much herself.
The guest said: “It didn’t seem like it was really her thing.
“Trevor and his friends definitely had more experience with it. I think she is more of a champagne and rose kind of girl. It almost looked like she didn’t know how to smoke.
“It is not something that was very much ‘her’, but it was part of the theme and the couple were very excited to have this surprise gift for the guests.
“It was a destination wedding in Jamaica, so they thought it would be appropriate and cool to supply this. She thought it would make it memorable.
“She was excited about making that a thing, showing a cheeky side people wouldn’t have imagined she had, especially at her wedding.”

The wedding plan included procuring enough marijuana to hand-roll over 200 joints, delivered to guests in gift bags left in their hotel rooms for their arrival.
Although there was just one tote bag per room – designed for the occasion - each contained a baggie with 3-5 ready-to-smoke joints.
Older guests received gift bags without the drugs inside.
The guest said: “Trevor used his charm and very easily found a member of staff at the hotel willing to supply the party.”

“It wasn’t great quality, I heard he didn’t pay much more than $100 for a couple of bags, but it didn’t really matter. There was enough to roll all the joints in the goodie bags and have plenty of left-overs to pass around as and when needed over the weekend.
“I’m told it took hours to roll them up. People were surprised, but no-one seemed to be against it, it went down really well.
“I don’t think Meghan thought for a second about it as a legal issue, even though they were holding a large quantity of it. It was part of their plan.
“Some people were lighting up all weekend, particularly Trevor’s friends. Meghan herself not so much, she was fairly constrained. She preferred to drink but I don’t think she wanted to be a party-pooper so she would take a puff from time to time to be a part of it.”
One guest who had not looked through her gift bag almost flew home to the US with a joint in her luggage.
The wedding was a four-day weekend with around 100 guests at the Jamaica Inn, in Ocho Rios, followed by a honeymoon at celebrities’ favourite Rockhouse Hotel, in Negril.

“Meghan always wanted to get married with her toes in the sand,” said the insider. She went to Jamaica with her mom a handful of times when she was younger, the two of them loved the beaches there, so there was a childhood connection.
“She had stayed previously at the Inn with Trevor in a romantic trip and they said they both felt a connection to the place too. You had 100 friends jumping on a plane and gathering on an island, it was an epic weekend under the sun and stars. There was drinking games, dancing, marijuana… it was a boozy beach wedding with a magical backdrop.”

'It was worlds away from her wedding to Harry,' said the source
Guests included both Meghan’s parents Doria and Thomas, her only family members, as well as Suits stars Patrick Adams and Rick Hoffman.
Aside from them, and her bridesmaids, those attending were almost all from Trevor’s side - including various family members and friends he had introduced her to - so in that sense it was similar to her Royal Wedding. That is where the similarities ended though.
Meghan and Trevor arrived on the tropical island around four days before the festivities to have everything in place for the occasion.
The wedding was funded mostly by Thomas Markle and Trevor’s parents, but Meghan and Trevor picked up some of the costs themselves.
Royal expert Ingrid Seward, Editor of Majesty magazine, said it was extremely unusual for a duchess to be caught discussing drugs
“It was worlds away from her wedding to Harry,” said the source.
“There was a lot of drinking all weekend. There were cocktails like Pina Colada and Long Island Iced Tea, and of course lots of rum and a lot of Red Stripe beer (local beer, featured in the couple’s wedding invitation).

“You could tell there was other sorts of things going on. Some people got really rowdy, including Trevor’s friends and some of Meghan’s Suits co-stars. There was debauchery, drinking games on the sand, people passing out and others being loud.
“They set up some competitions on the sand, like tug of war, wheel-barrel racing and drinking games like beer pong. It was out in the sun, so people got pretty drunk. Most guests were couples but there was some hooking up between the single people, but nothing too crazy and public. And the night of the wedding the party went until very late.”
The cannabis wedding gift was revealed by Meghan’s dad Thomas Markle earlier this month.
He said: “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. I don’t know what I did with mine. I think I gave it away.”
Prince Harry was ordered to visit a drugs rehabilitation clinic by his father Prince Charles after the teenager confessed to smoking cannabis and heavy drinking.
The short sharp shock treatment came after Harry, who was 16 at the time, admitted experimenting with the class B drug with older teenagers at Highgrove, at private parties in Gloucestershire and in an outbuilding at a local pub. He also told how he had been taking part in underage drinking at the same pub during after-hours sessions.

My view: Marijuana or not, we should all commend royal first lady Meghan Markle for being able to mastermind the set-up of all set-up, of her blind-date with Prince Harry, got married and now pregnant, all within 18-months, it is an exceptional achievement for a D-list social climber, now an A-list "calculated" superstar Duchess. The woman lied her way to Prince Harry's heart and just look at the state of him, looking like a school boy under supervision by his principal. Harry reportedly appears to wear outfits from TK Maxx ( outdated designer cheap shop) while his wife shows off in the best designer ensembles with mind-blowing price-tag. Meghan pretends to be an innocent virgin when she first met Harry, but she's wild and very smart. Meg and Trump should win the award for the liars of the year. Trump lied his way to the presidency, while Meghan lied her way to Prince Harry's heart, the fastest social climbing/climber ever. Meghan should write a book on how to get a Prince/Billionaire, it'll sell out fast just like her charity cookbook. I pray God give her the courage and heart to call her father Thomas. Meg is the real humanitarian.
