US (AL): Supplies down as flower growers switch to marijuana

Alabama flower shops were working overtime to get orders to moms for Mother's Day. However, florists say that this year it was harder to get flowers because of the rise of legal marijuana.

"In places where it's legal, a lot of our flower growers have gone to marijuana because it's more profitable. In fact, the biggest gerbera grower in the country has now shut down and gone strictly to marijuana," said LeNae Denson from Cleveland the Florist.
