Meet The Californian Mums Who Are Obsessed With Cannabis

There's a group of mothers in Beverly Hills that get together to smoke weed and call themselves the "Moms of Marijuana."

Apparently, most of the members took up the drug for medical reasons to help them cope with pain.

Cannabis activist January Jones, who suffers from arthritis, is seen in one video reading her daughter a pro-cannabis storybook, titled 'It's Just a Plant.'

She says smoking improves her parenting skills and claims she wouldn't even be able to pick her daughter up if it were not for the drug.

She said: "Smoking cannabis helps me be a better mother.

"It makes me a more creative mum, a more relaxed mother."

The executive director of Moms of Marijuana, Cheryl Shuman, hosts dinner parties for the rest of the group - where herb is the main ingredient - dubbing them "Come Dine with Cannabis."

"It does make me a better mom. I'm calmer, I'm more rational, I'm not angry," Shuman explains. "I would like to see it as normal as walking into a Starbucks."

California passed the first medical marijuana law in 1996, and expects to decriminalise recreational use sometime this year.
