A mum of two has sparked debate after saying that smoking weed every day makes her a better mum.

23-year-old Caitlin Fladager says marijuana helps with her anxiety and allows her to sleep better at night. She went on to say it should be seen as no different than having a glass of wine.

Caitlin lives in Vancouver, Canada, where recreational and medicinal marijuana use is legal. She opened up about her weed use and struggles with her mental health to her 285k Instagram followers.

‘It’s so funny to me how frowned upon marijuana is,’ she writes.

‘No one looks twice when a mom says she enjoys “mom juice” aka wine, after her kids are in bed. But when a mom says she smokes weed, it’s a huge shock.

‘I have never been the most patient with my two kids.

‘Weed makes me a better mom, as I get a good nights sleep after I smoke. I wake up well rested and with a more clear mind.’

Caitlin had her first child with her high school sweetheart Noah when she was 18. The couple have since married and now have two kids; Adriana and Jack.

‘It’s okay to smoke weed after your kids go to bed,’ Caitlin added on her post.

‘It’s okay to smoke it to help with anxiety. Mine has been SO much better since I started smoking.

She added that she also smokes weed to help regulate her weight: ‘I’ve always been dangerously underweight. Now, I am at the healthiest weight I have ever been in my life.

‘Marijuana is my glass of wine. It’s my can of beer.

‘It’s my relaxation time. You can still be a kick ass mom, and smoke weed.’

Sharing the post on both Facebook and Instagram, Caitlin has attracted thousands of likes and comments. Most of Caitlin’s followers supported her admission, but some people were critical.

‘If you smoke weed every day or you drink every day this is a problem!’ commented one.

‘Regardless whether you have children or not but I guess if you’re responsible for another person you should not drink or smoke. Especially when you’re home alone with children.’

Another added: ‘My kids drive me insane but never would I smoke weed. Not gonna blame my kids for an excuse to get high.’

But plenty of people were on her side, with some even voicing the opinion that smoking weed is less dangerous than alcohol.

‘Just as acceptable if not more so. Alcohol has many more negative side affects than weed. Love this post,’ said another woman.
