I'm a full-time working mother of two small children. A couple nights a week, after the kids are in bed, I smoke a bowl, usually shared with my husband. This is so much better then having a couple beers or a glass of wine. I'm not hungover the next day and it's easier on the wallet. I can fully relax at night, tune out a bit and I'm able to go to work the next day, no problems. If it's a weekend I can fully interact with my children without ever having to say, "Shhh, mommy's got a headache."
Fortunately for me, I live in a middle-class neighborhood and I'm white, so if the cops ever bust down my door they'll probably leave before arresting me because the paperwork's not worth it. Maybe that's why the illegality of it doesn't bother me.
