We’ve all known one
Whether it’s a Mom who smokes pot to be a better Mom or Grandparents listening to Trap music, we’ve all known a ‘grown up’ who enjoyed the herb. I remember as a younger version of myself, there was that kid in class who’s Dad ‘always had a funny smell coming from his room’. All the other parents would talk about how bad and irresponsible he was – not that I knew why at the time. But you know what? He (the father) was always a really nice, kind guy. A kind guy who fed us lots of cake. I now know why there was always cake (lol).
So much unnecessary stigma
Just because a ‘parent’ enjoys cannabis, doesn’t mean they are whacked out, living on the street, beating their kids, or performing any other horrors that the reefer madness propaganda has supplanted into our brains.
Some people have a beer or glass of wine, others (who just happen to be parents) like to puff on a vape, or maybe hit the bong, to help them relax after a long, hard days work.
So why on earth is there so much stigma around parents and weed? The reality is there shouldn’t be. The stigma is severely outdated and the rest of the world (not us) needs to be re-educated to stop vilifying the innocent.
Confessions from parents who partake
These confessions from the Whisper app, demonstrate the truth of the matter – parents are not bad because they smoke weed! In fact, these confessions actually show that parents who choose to enjoy the herb are, for the most part, are very responsible about it around their offspring.
