We thought it would be fun to bring our two love birds (Chung & Alex Nguyen) with their daughter, Sophie, for a 'Not your average Family portrait' Photo Shoot. We even added some Q&A to help dissolve some myths about smoking during termed pregnancy and hope that it eases the minds of those whom seek answers.
T.H.C. : Are you willing to take a stand for Marijuana and share your experience?
Alex Nguyen: Hell yes. I smoke occasionally and I'm mature enough to be open about it.
T.H.C. : Did you smoke during your pregnancy? If yes, how did that make you feel?
Alex Nguyen: Not often, but Yes. I felt completely fine. As a matter of fact, I felt it was even better for my situation as it kept me calm and relaxed. And being that I have had pills before, Marijuana was a lot more effective because it was less addicting. To be honest, I was more afraid of the long term effects of pills the doctors had given me (giggles).
T.H.C. : Do you fear people knowing this?
Alex Nguyen: At first I did, but now that I'm old enough to understand that Marijuana is harmless when managed in moderation, it doesn't bother me anymore. The thing is, I don't want my kid, Sophie, to fear it. I want her to know that I've smoked and still smoke occasionally.
T.H.C. : Who wears the pants in the house?
Alex Nguyen: Do you have to ask? Of course, Sophie. LOL
T.H.C. : Thanks, Alex.
