Melissa Etheridge Explains Why She Smokes Weed With Her Adult Children

Melissa Etheridge is opening up about smoking weed with her family.

The 55-year-old singer, who started using cannabis when she was going through chemotherapy, is trying to break the stigma around the drug.

Melissa revealed that she even smokes with her adult children, 20-year-old Bailey and 18-year-old Beckett.

“I have smoked with my older two. It was funny at first, and then they realized, it’s a very natural, end-of-the-day [thing]…And it brings you much closer. I’d much rather have a smoke with my grown kids than a drink,” she explained.

Melissa added, “My children have a very clear understanding of cannabis,. When I hold it without shame or confusion, then they can understand it as simple as if I was pointing to a bottle of Percocet and said, ‘That’s Mama’s medicine.’ You take the naughtiness out of it, and it’s not something that kids run to.”

    Why is hollywood so obsessed with weed? Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for legalizing it, but they put weed on the pedestal like it’s a magically unicorn.
