I smoke pot on a regular basis & have a 3 month old child. I have him in a different room though away from it & only do so when he's sleeping. I smoke it for the reason my anxiety gets very extreme & I have been on pills in the past. they've done nothing for me. I don't believe it's wrong. But I'm just wondering everyone else's opinion. Risky post, yes. But it's really in all honesty. Be anonymous, either way. Serious questions.


Are you a pot smoker?
Do you think it's wrong to smoke when you have kids?
How often do you smoke?

I don't smoke pot. I did when I was a teenager. I don't really see the harm in it. Because I am all for it being legalized, my family often thinks I smoke it. I have not smoked pot since I was 16 though. I just don't think its a dangerous drug. I am sure many people disagree with me.

Yes, I smoke (daily) No, it isn't wrong. People drink in front of their kids why shouldn't I relax the way I want? I am bipolar and marijauna is what keeps me normal.

Yes.

I dont think its wrong. I think living on pain killers and anxiety meds is worse. 

I smoke everynight after the kids are in bed. Sometimes I smoke during they day while they are at school and I clean!

I haven't smoked for a while, but I'm pro marijuana. I don't think it's bad, I know it doesn't make you a bad mother. I realize a lot of people operate and get their opinions from movies where people do nothing but sit and smoke ALL. DAY. When I smoked I would take a few hits here and there, it was enough to calm my nerves, enough to lessen the stress. And at night I'd smoke a bowl and it would put me to sleep.

The reason I don't smoke now is because it's not legal here. If it were, I'd smoke again.

(And when I was smoking, I usually had two or three bowls a day)

If cannabis were legal, we wouldn't be going through these issues.

I smoke pot, I don't smoke it around my kids. I simply don't want to expose them to it at a young age, the same reason I don't smoke cigarettes around them. I always smoke when my kids are either not home or after they've gone to sleep. For the most part I get high for the fun of it, however with all the crap I've dealt with the last six months I have noticed that the pot is helping. My anxiety is fucking up my sleep again, I hate taking sleeping aids because they make me groggy for days but now I just smoke before bed and I can sleep without any side effects and I fall asleep easier with pot than with the sleep aids.

I don't think it's wrong, I don't think it should be illegal but people should accept and recognize that just like everything else you should use it responsibly.

I wish I liked smoking weed cause I totally would but I just don't care for it. Doesn't bother me if people smoke...my kid's dad is a big pothead and he's still an awesome dad. I take lortab for pain for an autoimmune disease I have...they really don't help though. I've heard weed would lessen the pain so I really wish I liked it...

I think pot is perfectly normal it's almost like the chances of someone smoking pot is 50/50

I smoke almost daily and I don't need to justify it by saying it's for anxiety, or pain. I just do it because I like it, is that so wrong?
