“Yes, I have two kids. Yes, I smoke weed daily.
It’s so funny to me how frowned upon marijuana is. No one looks twice when a mom says she enjoys ‘mom juice,’ aka wine, after her kids are in bed. But when a mom says she smokes weed, it’s a huge shock.
I talk about this to bring awareness. I feel as not enough people talk about this. Marijuana has helped me so much, especially when it comes to being a mom.
I have never been the most patient with my two kids. Weed makes me a better mom, as I get a good night sleep after I smoke. I wake up well rested, and with a more clear mind.
It’s okay to smoke weed after your kids go to bed.
It’s okay to smoke it to help with anxiety. Mine has been SO much better since I started smoking.
It’s okay to smoke it to gain weight. I’ve always been dangerously underweight. Now, I am at the healthiest weight I have ever been in my life.
It’s okay to smoke it, to help you get off medication. I was able to completely stop my anti-depressants because smoking helped me so much.
It’s okay to smoke instead of drink. I used to have a problem with drinking, and my behavior that came along with that. Weed has helped me to stop drinking so much, and to be honest, I much prefer smoking over drinking.
Marijuana is my glass of wine.
It’s my can of beer.
It’s my relaxation time.
You can still be a kick ass mom, and smoke weed.”
