A mum who smokes weed around her kids hit back at trolls who say her children should be put in care.
Caitlin Fladager, 27, lives in Vancouver in Canada, where recreational and medicinal weed use is legal.
But despite making it clear she uses it to cope with her anxiety, the mum-of-two gets a lot of abuse about it online.
She insists she's not doing anything wrong after previously speaking out about why smoking a spliff "makes her a better parent".
Now sharing to her 344,000 followers on Instagram, Caitlin penned a post about why weed should be accepted like a glass of wine.
The mum recalled how the first moment she smoked weed was when she was in her twenties.
She said: "I was always to anxious to try it, and I grew up hearing the normal things you hear about it.
"I was never taught about all of the medical benefits this amazing plant had to offer.
"So I started talking about it. Educating others on it. I knew I would be met with criticism, skepticism, and questions."
Caitlin revealed how she's trying to push past some of the standard stereotypes of people who smoke weed.

She added: "I am trying to rewrite them, and I get it. It's hard.
"When you've been taught for so long something is 'bad', how could it suddenly become 'good?'
"Marijuana has changed so much. From the ways you can take it, to the exact doses you can now figure out your perfect level.
"One day I have hope I will be able to say 'I'm going out for a joint', and no one will look twice."

Hitting back at the comments, Caitlin finished the post: "It will be almost as if I said 'I'm going to have a glass of wine'.
"But that day may be a little way away. And I will wait. I will take the rude comments, the CPS jokes, and the slander.
"Because I know one day, it will be seen for the medicine it truly is. One day."
The blogger shared a post of her smoking weed with a comment that read: "A pot head mum is not a good mum at all."
Caitlin also posed next to a next that read: "Mum truth: Weed should be just as acceptable as a glass of wine."
Since she shared her speech on social media, it racked up almost 15,000 likes with hundreds of comments.
One wrote: "A mum judgmental of other mums is not a good mum. Lol."
Another added: "You're amazing. People will judge what they don't understand."
