But the difference here is that you have a serious, diagnosed disease. The purpose of the pills is to alleviate your pain, and of course being more calm will be a side effect. Someone who is in constant, debilitating pain isn't going to be very calm. The impression I got from the OP is that these women are smoking pot because they feel like it.

Yes, they are smoking it because they want to not because they have to. Well, one mother used it because she had cancer, but even after her cancer was gone she continued to use it and even got her daughter medical card because she said she likes using the MJ because it's more natural than the pills.

Here, watch this segment, it pretty much sums them up. It's only about 10 minutes long. YouTube - Soccer Mom Stoners Part 2. It's a little hard to understand because of the quality, but it gets the point across.
