I don't think your mother would have survived me as her child. If I had heard of her saying that about me, I'd have dressed up in mesh stockings and a too short skirt and too high heels and showed up at her door with mussed hair at 6 a.m. asking for breakfast, because you know... working the night shift .... (where's the icon for a really evil grin???)
In your case, though, I might mention how many people really do benefit from the medical properties of marijuana. My son would have given up years ago if not for the relief it provides him from some of the side/after effects of dialysis and too long being on immune-suppression drugs. It also allows him to eat when, without it, 90% of meals come right back up. And all those kids with seizures ... Really, the only reason marijuana is a schedule 1 drug is because the alcohol lobby pushed for it. <getting off soap box now>
Oh, she and I have had the pros/cons debate over MMJ many
times. DH uses it to help with his PTSD, ADHD, anxiety, and for pain relief. Even seeing the difference in him between when he's smoked and when he hasn't, she still
clings to all the BS propaganda put out there, rather than the real-life facts she can see with her own eyes. She maintains that marijuana is a "gateway drug" to the hard stuff, like meth and coke. Yeah, no. DH was addicted to meth for several years. He turned to meth because his doctor cut him off from Vicodin after his accident because he had become addicted. Meth was the only thing that gave him the same relief/feeling that the Vicodin did. So, it was the legal painkillers that got him addicted on the hard stuff, not marijuana. She tries to act like he's an exception, not the general rule.
She also swears that MMJ edibles are marketed to kids, simply because they're in the form of gummies and other sweets. Nope. That's been found to be the best vehicle for people who don't want to smoke, but still want the relief provided by MMJ. In no way, shape, or form are edibles "marketed to kids." Yet more propaganda that she believes.
