Queen of the Day

The Marijuana Moms of Beverly Hills (NSFW)

Momma’s got a brand new bag — of marijuana, that is.

Forget book clubs, Bridge and, ahem, potluck get-togethers. A group of middle-aged women in Beverly Hills have added a little green to their routine with dimebags and dinner parties instead. In California, pot is legal with a prescription and can be used to help with chronic pain. But instead of smoking alone, this group of ladies likes to puff-puff-pass during monthly dinners, where one woman has hired a top chef to help prepare pot-infused gourmet dishes (including cannabis leaf salad, chicken fried in cannabis oil and marijuana milk shakes).

Some of the women are married (one to a police officer), some have kids and all of them believe in the healing powers of the wacky grass. Cheryl Shuman, a 53-year-old “marijuana mom” with two kids says,

“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.”

Another mother, 37-year-old January Thomas, says that she smokes up to 5 times a day while spending time at home with her two-year-old daughter, Zeena.

“Marijuana makes me a better and more creative parent,” Thomas says. “It puts me in the moment with Zeena and stops me worrying about everyday problems.”

Thomas, a part-time bartender and pro-cannabis activist, wants her daughter to grow up knowing about the benefits of the drug and regularly reads her books like, Mommy’s Funny Medicine and It’s Just A Plant to help with Zeena’s, uh, higher education.

Moms of HG, what do you think about mixing pot with parenting? Just say no or smoke it if you got it?
