Janelle Evans is one of the young ladies on the MTV reality show 16 & Pregnant. Teen pregnancy is nothing new, but MTV has now made it into a possible stepping stone into reality television for some lucky little teens. Well Janelle is making headlines not because she was a teen mom, but because she admitted to smoking marijuana during her pregnancy. Not only that she says her doctor recommended it to help with nausea. Having just welcomed my first child into the world in December I can’t recall our OB saying that is you feel a bit queasy just take a few puffs and you will be good to go.
Since the news of her smoking habit went more mainstream Janelle has been playing a bit of damage control. She has taken her YouTube videos, which show some drug use, and made them private. She has deleted her Formspring account where she answered questions about her use of illegal drugs during pregnancy.
Some of the Q&A:
