These Marijuana Moms Say Smoking Weed Makes Them Better Parents
These Marijuana Moms smoke weed to unwind or deal with chronic pain. But, when the moms get together for their sessions, it’s not just smoking.
Forget those “Real Housewives” of wherever, as these Marijuana Moms are not only more fun but more real, too.
Meet the Marijuana Moms
Just who are the “Marijuana Moms”?
It is a group of mothers who smoke weed to unwind or deal with chronic pain. But, when the moms get together for their sessions, it’s not just smoking, as the women also prepare some pretty lavish dinners, which use cannabis – be it, the leaf in salads or chicken fried in cannabis oil – as an ingredient.
This Barcroft TV video introduces Cheryl Shuman, who is a 53-year-old mother of two, who began using cannabis after being diagnosed with cancer. She is an advocate that smoking makes the group not just better wives but also better parents.
We’ve all come up against people who say marijuana is for dirty druggies, but we are proof you can be good parents and productive members of society and use it – I like to think we are bringing some glamour and exclusivity to marijuana use. – Cheryl Shuman
Of course, given that it’s a plural in the name of the group, Shuman is not alone. She is joined by January Thomas, a 37-year-old mother of a two-year-old daughter, who smokes up to fives times a day. When reading to her daughter, Thomas mixes in titles such as Mommy’s Funny Medicine and It’s Just a Plant.
Marijuana makes me a better and more creative parent – it puts me in the moment with Zeena and stops me worrying about everyday problems. – January Thomas
Really, who could blame them for being Really Stoned Housewives of Beverly Hills instead of any other kind?
According to police reports, the parents were laughing at the toddler who was high.

“Cannabis is the new tech industry,” Money says. “It’s going to be the business.”
Child Protective Services accused the parents of abusing their daughter because they give her marijuana to stop her from hurting herself.
