Special Deliveries: Octomom's Pot Treats Get Sent to Her Home
When caring for small children, it's critical to be at your most attentive so that you can be sure they don't hurt themselves. This goes double for when there's more than one kid; as they multiply, they -- like cattle -- become more difficult to wrangle.
Which is why it's so disconcerting that Octomom, according to TMZ, is a stoner.
The gossip site reports that Nadya Suleman, mother of 14, indulges in the sticky green in the form of baked goods, which are delivered directly to her home. Suleman apparently holds a medical marijuana card, that she got upon being released from rehab for her addiction to Xanax.
(Pause for effect.)
Suleman reportedly only gets high when the nannies aren't around, and doesn't think that she poses a threat to her kids when she's baked out of her gourd and serving as their primary caretaker.
Prior to the news about her infatuation with weed, Suleman was making headlines for appearing in porn and stripping. Not that anyone's asking, but we were much more on board with her doing what it took to feed her kids than doing what it took to ignore the annoyances of her kids.
