Nadya Suleman, a.k.a. Octo-Mom, Reportedly Scores Medical Pot Card

octomom-nadya-suleman_victorio-150.jpg
TMZ is reporting that Nadya Suleman, the infamous Octomom, is a medical marijuana patient. Apparently, the mother of 14 children, former pay-per-chat phone entrepreneur and pornstar just checked out of a treatment center for addiction to Xanax and promptly purchased herself a medical marijuana card so she can cure her anxiety the natural way. The gossip website's sources are claiming Octomom isn't smoking any weed around her children, but rather is having baked brownies and other edibles delivered to her home, and that therefore, she feels, her kids "are not at risk."

On the one hand, if anyone qualifies for a medical marijuana anxiety-treatment program it's a single mother of more than a dozen kids. On the other hand, just when the hell is she going to have the time to get stoned eating brownies if she's supposed to be parenting all those ankle-biters? Either way, although Octomom isn't exactly the poster-child for medical pot, if the space cakes help her quit popping pills, isn't that a good thing? And more importantly, how long will it take before there's some kind of hybrid strain named after Suleman?

She probably needs it to help forget what an oxygen thief she is. Spun ass broad....

wasn't this trick filing for bankruptcy? She can afford drugs but not her bills? WTF?

At this point no one is going to take the children away. So they are stuck with her and will remain locked in their house, locked in their bedrooms as she stunts their learning. Maybe the people of Palmdale can shame her into getting them into a HeadStart program or some other daycare. Obviously she's too busy looking at herself in a mirror to spend energy on the kids. God forbid she has to get them up every day, bathe them, get them dressed in clean clothes, brush their teeth, etc. for them to go to school. Why have children if you are not interested in parenting them? Oh  yeah, she wants the monthly checks.

I'd like to know how she gets them delivered? Are they saying it's now legal to ship drugs thru the United States Postal Service?  The only way this woman can properly supervise 14 children is to  lock them in a room, and she did that when she was sober. This has disaster written all over it.  Poor kids, she buys dope with grocery money. Then she eats what is there while they are locked in their room. Pathetic and pitifully sad that no one in authority is smart enough to find a way to help these kids.

Alcohol is legal but people still get arrested for public intoxication even in the home and even when they think they are walking and not driving and when the courts feel it is a problem they can order a person to avoid alcohol use while serving probation and order treatment and the same goes for Octomom under the influence of her marijuana cookies high taking care of her kids in her own home.

No better way to sabotage a couple of hundred K worth of ankle to hairline cosmetic surgery than a munchie subsidy. At least that explains the pole porkage. Nice to have the government pay to get you baked, no? And so easy to have a steady supply to trade up to tweak.

She'll be back in OC soon enough . Palmdale is a short term lease where she is unknown and she can't make it from now on without her parent's income subsidizing her rent. So it will again be three generations of this happy family under one roof, you lucky OC neighbors..

Once she figures out that she simply can't manage the 8 and someone else actually wants to, that leaves her back to original six. She'll institutionalize a couple of them and it will be just like it was before .

She'll be the oldest child again. And none of this will have ever happened. Except that she can now tweak without being monitored for pregnancy. And the government will pay for that too.

Isn't California wonderful? If just one social worker had been doing his job ten years ago and nipped this grifter in the bud, none of this really would ever have happened and millions of squandered dollars would be available today to OC parents who don't have babies so that their babies can support them.

@Rainbow Doll   I agree..... everyone uses it.  And it is a proven to help pain and medical problems.  Having to get it illegally for pain would be much simpler.  I would rather use it than take all the meds I have to take.

@Mara Felsen Don't be an asshat. Natalie Doud is the one that publicized herself- didn't you hear the TMZ recording? She sold it to the media just like she sells everything else.

@donedonedone She's not going to give up any of the children as long as she gets money for having them. She'll just do as little as possible for them like she's been doing all along. She doesn't take them anywhere, they aren't in pre-school or nursery school. They stay locked up in the house 24/7 rotting away in the hell she's created for her own children.

@jkatienjana , not everyone uses it. I could qualify for it but would rather not be a doper with pot.

@strawberrysundae @donedonedoneOnce she goes over the edge the decision will be made for her.

Have you considered that the ridiculously relentlessly destructive freefall she has put herself into for 4 years just might be a way of her getting to have someone else make that decision for her? Giving someone this unstable access to something as seriously potent as med weed is one way to make that happen fairly soon. With a good shove over.

She has never had the slightest sense of accountability or responsibility. She has even referred to herself as the Fifteenth Child ( after I started calling her that on Octorazzi, BTW) in interviews. What mother of 14 would EVER think of themselves that way?

So then she gets to be a Professional Martyr instead of a Serial Child Abuser in the media and make a lot more money on freakshow daytime TV exploiting her loss than she gets on welfare and without even having to take her clothes off. And have a lot more fun touring the country and pigging out on room service while she gets it.

Then she can go back onto welfare again as soon as she spends that. If she gives up the 8, the money from the other 6 is still plenty per month. Plus she may very well be getting monthly under the table money from the father of the first 6. He can probably afford it. No other reason she would still keep that secret, is there
