Hey, sorry…was away from computer for most of the day.
For me, marijuana doesn’t impair me, it improves me. I am not ashamed to take a couple tylenol for a headache, a Zyrtec for allergies, or partake in marijuana for my sometimes-crippling anxiety in front of her.
I would say, in my experience, it’s nothing like booze. It is a medicine that helps me function. I am a better mother when I able to function.
Alcohol is legal and socially acceptable and dangerous when abused.
Similarly, I’m not happy about my child being around cigarette smoke, because it’s dangerous to her health. But, I know it’s socially acceptable to smoke, so the onus is on me to keep my child away from people who are smoking.
I talk to my kid about why I use marijuana. I also let her know she’s not old enough for it. The culture is shifting around pot. It is becoming more and more socially acceptable every day.
People using weed in one form or another should be the least of our worries. I don’t wish to be sequestered.
