A mum-of-two has defended smoking weed daily – saying it makes her a better parent.

Caitlin Fladager, from Vancouver in Canada, accepts smoking marijuana is frowned upon and says it comes as a shock to others.

However she believes it’s no different to having a glass of wine after the kids have gone to bed.

The writer and mental health advocate says it has helped her become more rested and claims her anxiety has improved since she started smoking.

In an honest Instagram post she wrote: “Yes, I have two kids. Yes, I smoke weed daily. ⁣

“It’s so funny to my how frowned upon marijuana is. 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 talk about this to bring awareness. I feel as not enough people talk about this. Marijuana has helped me so much, especially when it comes to being a mom.”
