No, I don't think it's okay. My #1 reason is because it's illegal. They are jeopardizing losing their children for a selfish habit that could land them in jail or get their kids taken away. I don't know enough about the repercussions of smoking weed to judge whether or not that part is okay, is it like smoking a cigarette or something? What affect does it have on their ability to drive or parent? I have no clue.
I drink wine once a week, sometimes twice and it definitely helps me relax. I drink a glass with dinner and once DD is in bed I might have a couple more glasses with DH. I wouldn't say the wine itself makes me a better parent, but the ability to sit down and relax with a glass of something I enjoy helps me keep my emotions in check the next day. I look forward to every Thursday evening because it's the 1 day a week I get to let loose and have a stay at home date night with DH. I don't know if that makes sense or not... but I'll try another example. When I get more than 6 hours of sleep, I am able to parent better the next day. If I only get 3-4 hours of sleep, it's difficult for me to keep my composure and stay patient with DD.
