I have never believed the old malarkey that you are no fun after the baby comes. You can still be a cool couple if you put your mind to it. But it seems like Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa are taking their plans to stay true to their old selves a wee bit too far.
Their baby, they say, is going to know all about weed. Why, you might ask?
Well, this is all about nurture vs. nature for this couple. As Wiz said of his plans to keep the weed after the baby is born:
I think it's all about how you're raised with it. Before there was a much more negative outtake on it. You know, pot and what it can do, and the effects of it.
Soooo, because the baby will be raised around pot, he'll be open-minded about it? It's not the craziest thing I've ever heard (really, did you hear about the kid named Hashtag?).
But it's not the smartest either.
I'm not one of those "OMG, weed is the worst thing ever!" people. I'm actually supportive of marijuana legalization.
But as it stands, weed is still an illegal substance in most states. Although Wiz -- thank GOD -- says he won't be smoking it around the baby because of the health risks of smoke, the couple is openly admitting that they will engage in illegal activity around their child. They might as well give the CPS a jingle and invite them on in! In many states, simple possession of a controlled substance in the same space as a child is considered child abuse.
This is an important thing for all parents -- not just famous ones like Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa -- to face. Some things in life DO change after you have a baby. Sometimes it's getting rid of a beloved pet because your new little one is allergic. Sometimes it's getting rid of that sexy roadster because there is no room for a car seat. And sometimes, it's setting aside your weed.
Pot plus babies can equal a family nightmare. And it's just not worth it.
No matter how cool you think it is to have pot, no matter how careful you plan to be, the fact is, becoming a parent means you have to choose. Do you want the trappings of your old pre-baby lifestyle, or will you make the baby your priority? In the case of weed, if you don't put baby first, you could be watching your precious child carted out of the house and taken off to foster care, just like that.
Is the pot really more important than your baby?
Would you keep pot in the house with a baby? What have you had to give up since the baby came?
