Mlada majka, nema ni 25 ima dvoje djece, sama ova 'jednadžba' bez da znamo išta o njihovim životima govori da je taj posao naporan i da joj nije lako. Jedna takva mama potaknula je veliku debatu nakon priznanja da svaki dan puši 'travu' zbog čega je bolja majka. Caitlin Fladager (23) kaže d ajoj marihuana pomaže s anksioznošću i zahvaljujući njoj spava bolje po noći. Tvrdi da marihuana nije ništa drugo od čaše vina.
Caitlin živi Vancouveru u Kanadi, gdje je rekreativna konzumacija marihuane legalna. Iako ne radi ništa protuzakonito, mnogi njezini pratitelji na društvenim mrežama nisu baš dobro prihvatili njezino priznanje. Svojim sljedbenicima (a ima ih 285 tisuća) kazala je da joj je smiješno kako se ljudi mršte samo na spomen marihuane.

Yes, I have two kids. Yes, I smoke weed daily. It’s so funny to my 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 behaviour 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.

"Nitko ni ne trepne kada majka kaže da užima u 'majčinom soku', odnosno vinu, nakon što joj djeca legnu u krevet. Ali kad mama kaže da puši travu, to je veliki šok", napisala je Caitlin. Dodala je da nikada nije bila strpljivija sa svojom djecom.
"Trava me čini boljom mamom, jer se dobro naspavam nakon što zapalim. Probudim se dobro odmorena i bistrijeg uma", kazala je. Caitlin je prvo dijete dobila sa svojim srednjoškolskim dečkom Noahom, kada je imala 18. Par se od tada vjenčao i sada imaju dvoje djece Adrianu i Jacka.

Things you should REALLY know about being a mom: You can smoke marijuana and still be an awesome parent. I recently posted on my story, about me smoking. And it got a lot of attention. Good and bad. A lot of the time, people were questioning how you can be a parent, and smoke. Well, to start off, it’s completely legal where I live. Just like a liquor store, you can walk in and grab a joint. And I only smoke when the kids are fast asleep, tucked in for the night. This to me, is my glass of wine after a long day and the kids are asleep. This to me is my beer after a hard day. This to me is a perfect night spent with my husband while we laugh, watch friends, and eat junk food together. This to me is how I sleep better at night. It’s how I stay asleep longer, fall asleep faster, and wake up feeling more rested. So much so, where I actually get up earlier with the kids than if I hadn’t smoked the night before. This to me is how I went from being an unhealthy 93 pounds, to a healthy 110. This to me is how I get through anxiety. This to me is helping myself, mentally and physically. There is so many stigmas around weed, and there are many things it can make you. Happy, relaxed, hungry, giggly, sleepy. But what it doesn’t make you, is a bad parent. (Something else you should know as a mom, you won’t have time to get your nails filled.. and they’ll end up looking like mine😂)

"Ok je pušiti da se pomogne s anksioznošću, meni je mnogo bolje otkako sam počela pušiti". Osim toga pušenje trave pomaže joj s kontroliranjem težine. "Uvijek sam bila opasno mršava, sada imam najzdraviju težinu u cijelom životu. Marihuana je moja čaša vina, moja limenka pive", zaključila je mlada majka.
Mnogi su se složili s njom, ali mnogi su joj rekli da je neodgovorna te da je problem i čaša vina ako je se mora piti svaki dan.

Since I have opened up about me smoking weed, I’ve had many comments, questions, and concerns. I’m going to start off by saying, weed is completely legal in Canada. You can walk in to a dispensary and buy it just like alcohol. It is not legal everywhere, even though I think it should be. Marijuana has been my saviour for my anxiety. It has helped me not go back on anti anxiety medication again. It has helped me to be a more patient mother. It is my glass of wine after the kids go to sleep. It is bonding time with my husband, while we smoke, watch Friends, and laugh together. There is a lot of stereotypes about people who smoke weed. And most of them are untrue. My husband is the hardest working man I know, and he smokes. I’m a damn good mom, and I smoke. You would be surprised by the amount of professional people you personally know, who also smoke. Marijuana makes me many things. Happy, relaxed, calm. But what it doesn’t make me, is a bad mom.
