Some topics in society are still taboo and will cause all sorts of feathers to get ruffled -- depending on whether you're for or against. Welp, Kristen Bell just confessed she smokes weed at home, and it's getting a bit of backlash, and that's putting it nicely. A number of people are "losing respect" for the celeb mom and are letting her have it.

  • Kristen recently opened up on the WTF with Marc Maron podcast about enjoying weed in the comfort of her own home.

    "I smoke around my husband and it doesn't seem to bother him. Weed rules," Kristen Bell confessed to Marc Maron about her enjoying marijuana at home, E! News reports. "Once a week, if I am exhausted and we are about to sit down and watch 60 Minutes, why not?"

  • And her confession is turning heads as her husband, Dax Shepard, recently celebrated 14 years of sobriety.

    "He lost his privilege with them because he can't handle it; his brain doesn't have the chemistry to handle it," the celeb mom added about her husband knowing his limits and being OK with her smoking weed at home.

    News of Kristen Bell's ganja enjoyment comes weeks after she honored Dax for being sober for 14 years. "I'm so proud that you have never been ashamed of your story, but instead shared it widely, with the hope it might inspire someone else to become the best version of themselves," she wrote in her touching Instagram post.

    "You have certainly inspired me to do so.I love you more than I ever thought I could love anyone, and I want you to know, I see you. I see how hard you work. You set an excellent example of being human. Happy 14th year sobriety birthday, @daxshepard."

  • ... in addition to her being a mom, because people seem to have issues with moms lighting up.

    Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are the proud parents of two daughters, Lincoln, 5, and Delta, 3.

  • Critics are having a field day condemning Kristen's actions as they don't think smoking weed at home -- when you have children -- is appropriate.

    TBH, a number of people (moms included) smoke weed these days.

  • So it is really worth it to get this worked up about what a mom does in the comfort of her own home?

    We're gonna take the "mind our dang business" approach with this one and assume Kristen takes the necessary steps to make sure no one in her household gets secondhand exposure.
