Bridal consultant charged with letting her kids grow marijuana
A Lexington bridal consultant has been charged with endangering the welfare of minors because, police said, she allowed her teenage son and daughter to grow marijuana at their home, according to court records.
Michele Hall Landers, an accredited bridal consultant who runs Bridal Potpourri on Clays Mill Road, has pleaded not guilty to possession of marijuana and three counts of endangering the welfare of a minor.
Landers’ teenage son and daughter have been charged with cultivation and possession of marijuana and trafficking marijuana, court records say. Police also say Landers knew about what was going on and did not intervene. One of the daughter’s friends, a 15-year-old, was also involved.
Landers was charged with possession after police found her with 5 grams of marijuana cigarettes.
Bridal Potpourri, located at 3306 Clays Mill Road, offers brides held in designing wedding invitations, programs, map cards and event itineraries, according to the business Web site.
Her business has been featured in the Herald-Leader, Bluegrass Style and other publications. According to the Web site, Landers’ staff hosts two bridal shows each year and sometimes teach a wedding planning class at Lexington Community College.
Landers is expected to appear in court for a pretrial conference at 10 a.m. Oct. 15.
