Im a mum who regularly smokes weed – it makes me a more patient parent

A mum-of-two has sparked debate online after she claimed smoking weed regularly helps to make her a 'better parent.'

Caitlin Fladager has been open with her followers about how she smokes marijuana on a regular basis and claims it has made her a more patient mother to her children.

The 28-year-old lives in Vancouver, Canada, where the use of recreational and medicinal marijuana was made legal in 2018.

But she is still trolled online due to the stereotypes around using the class B drug as she claims people often assume she gets lazy and gets scoffs down snacks when she's had a smoke.

They also assume she doesn't pay much attention to her children because of it – but she has hit back at trolls, claiming the reality is much different.

Cailin insists she gets more energy from the drug, which gives her more motivation to whip up healthy snacks for her two kids, aged six and eight.

In the Facebook video, she explained: "It is medicine and I want my kids to know about more natural options.

"I want to always be open with them and reduce the stigma [marijuana] has."

She also compared her marijuana use to other parents drinking alcohol and previously called a spliff her "glass of wine" and said she refuses to hide it.

They now call it "mommy's little helper" on her "hard days" as she uses it in place of anti-depressants.

Posting on Instagram, she previously said: “I have never been the most patient with my two kids.

“Weed makes me a better mom, as I get a good night's sleep after I smoke. I wake up well-rested, and with a more clear mind.

“I knew I would be met with criticism, scepticism, and questions but in my mind, that was all worth it if I could show at least one person a slightly more natural way to cope with mental health problems.”
