“Octomom” Nadya Suleman is pretty confident that she can take care of her massive brood while she’s stoned out of her gourd.
The controversial mother of 14 is always making headlines for her bizarre (but not totally unexpected) life choices and seeming naivety to her situation. Lately, she’s making waves as a proud new owner of a medical marijuana card, which she reportedly acquired just two days after leaving rehab for an addiction to the prescription drug Xanax, reports MSN.
How did Octomom get her hands on a license to toke? According to TMZ‘s sources, Suleman was able to get a prescription for marijuana due to anxiety. Okay, fair enough.
The sources say that the marijuana Octomom gets isn’t smoked (she has kids, for Pete’s sake!) but rather cooked into delicious confections like cookies. She reportedly exercises her right both at home and when she’s on the road.
Octomom considers herself the primary caregiver to her 14 children and reportedly believes that they’re not at risk while she’s high. She also allegedly doesn’t use when the nannies are around, meaning that she’s only high when she’s the only one around caring for her brood.
So now we get to the dicey questions.
Do you think it’s okay for Octomom to use marijuana to “check out” regularly? Is it understandable, given her situation? Or is it never acceptable to use marijuana when you’re taking care of your children? Are they at risk? Sound off in the comments below!
