Today Mom and Dad are talking about parents that use cannabis, and the haters that hate them. Apparently using legal herb to combat things like residual limb pain is just like, so unacceptable for parents to do. In this episode The Stoner Mom and husband break down the numerous benign and boring reasons parents use cannabis. *Hint: it’s not like bath salts.


Why do Parents Use Marijuana?

Today’s episode was based off this post, Why Use Pot.

Parents use marijuana for severe health issues. The kind that people who are anti-cannabis don’t have. Like HIV/AIDS, Cancer, PTSD, MS, Crohn’s Disease. Post-partum depression and debilitating anxiety. Like seizures, even in children. Like spinal cord injury, epilepsy and wasting syndrome. Like Hepatitis C, Lou Gehrig’s Disease,Alzheimer’s and muscle spasm disorders. Like FibromyalgiaFibrous dysplasiaParkinson’s disease, and Lupus. Like Post-Concussion Syndrome, and residual limb pain. Like Tourette Syndrome and Traumatic Brain Injury. Like Interstitial cystitis and IBS.

Don’t have any of these? How nice for you. It’s easy to pass judgement on the sick, but is that really the kind of person you want to be?
