A MUM, who admits to smoking weed around her children, admits that they don’t mind because they know they’re more likely to get McDonald’s when she gets the ‘munchies.’
Caitlin Fladager, 27, lives in Vancouver, Canada, where recreational and medicinal marijuana use is legal.
And the mum-of-two recently shared a video on Instagram alongside her son where she revealed that she’ll often reach for the junk food when she has been smoking.
Writing a caption from the point of view of her son, she said: “When you’ve been waiting for your mom to🍃 🌬️ so she would want to order McDonald’s too.”
The leaf and wind emojis are often used to represent marijuana on social media.

Caitilin then admitted that when she smokes is “the only time I actually want McDonald’s.”
The mum has previously been criticised for giving her kids fast food.
She shared a photo of her two young children Ariana and Jack enjoying a lazy day on the sofa with her 484,000 Instagram followers.
She wrote : "Sometimes I make my kids awesome dinners and do activities with them.
"But some days I get them McDonald's and let them watch a lot of TV (YouTube)."
As a high-profile mummy blogger, dealing with negative comments online is something Caitlin has had to come to terms with – and one follower even compared letting her children eat McDonald's to giving them cigarettes.
Caitlin got pregnant with her high school sweetheart Noah when she was 18 years old and the married couple now share two children, Adriana and Jack.
Caitlin is also very focused on her own mental health, often using marijuana to help her relax.
She says she wants to “raise awareness” of how marijuana can actually help up women become better mums to their children.
Posting on Instagram, she previously said: “I have never been the most patient with my two kids.
“Weed makes me a better mom, as I get a good night's sleep after I smoke. I wake up well rested, and with a more clear mind.”
Caitlin says that she only smokes weed once her kids are in bed, and she uses it in place of antidepressants.
She has faced plenty of criticism with trolls describing her as a “pothead”, “shameful” and a “bad mum” but Caitlin has been quick to hit back.
Posting on Instagram, she previously wrote: “I knew I would be met with criticism, scepticism, and questions.
“But in my mind, that was all worth it if I could show at least one person a slightly more natural way to cope with mental health problems.”
The mum claims it also helped her cut back on her drinking.
