Pot Moms Say Don’t Harsh Our Mellow
It’s no secret that some moms self-medicate.
Many of them would have self-destructed and smothered their offspring over the decades if not for the various types of traditional “mother’s little helpers” — wine, cocktails, cigarettes, and diet pills.
Marijuana seems tame in comparison. Yet the federal government classifies pot as a Schedule I drug right alongside the more serious PCP and heroin.
So it’s pleasing to know that a mainstream website such as MSN.com would publish “Pot-smoking moms tired of being judged by wine drinkers” and allow regular women a chance to explain why they’d rather toke than drink.
A live poll accompanying the story asks if it’s okay for moms to smoke pot. More than 80 percent of readers say it’s fine as long as the moms smoke pot responsibly.
