Until six years ago, she was staunchly anti-marijuana. When she was 5, parents services removed her and her siblings from her home due to her own parents’ drug abuse, according to the bio on her blog.

Her husband, who has smoked marijuana since he was a teen, urged her to try it for her migraines instead of pharmaceuticals. Now she grows it on her patio and says it has made her pain-free and a much better parent.

“I’ve heard from hundreds of moms who use marijuana,” she said. “They’re happy that I’m out there, putting it out there. There are so many moms that are still hiding because they’re ashamed. And you shouldn’t be ashamed.” [ Read More Here ]

I wan’t to thank the hosts of The Chat, well the three out of four who took the time to educate themselves on cannabis as well as the article posted by TODAY.

I along with the moms featured do not use cannabis to deal with our kids!! I chose cannabis at twenty-four over pharmaceuticals. In return I am 80lbs lighter, not in a constant pain, not up for two days at a time, not walking into walls or worried about becoming dependent. That is the way narcotics/pharmas work on me. Cannabis gives me the ability to focus on my children instead of myself and my health. Making a good mom an even better healthier mom.

Cannabis has helped mothers where pharmaceuticals failed them. Moms who suffer through chronic pain and illness are able to have normal lives when pharmas/narcotics turned them into zombies. That is not to knock those they do work for!

They were perfectly healthy and are so smart it blows my mind. I have not noticed any negative effects from smoking and if anything I believe it was healthy to continue smoking throughout the pregnancy because it not only helped me physically cope with being sick but it helped me mentally to relax and not stress too much.I have had several mom’s come to me and ask me my experience with smoking weed while pregnant and I only wish I was able to find the Cannavist Mom page while I was preggo.There are a lot of misconceptions about pregnancy and weed and I feel honored to be able to share my story with other mom’s who are considering weed.
I just want to thank the Cannavist Mom for standing up for us stoner mom’s and challenging the taboo of smoking weed while pregnant.

I smoked every day, twice a day for 6 months from a water pipe. It was a life saver. My morning sickness left me struggling to start the day off. I was working at a coffee shop in the morning, so that made for a few call outs. Once I’d smoke, I felt a lot better. My appetite and mood increased and the pressure on my pelvis wasn’t near as painful. I’d recommend cannabis use while pregnant to any woman
