Brooke Mueller:

Pipe Down,

It Was Only Pot!

7/13/2011 9:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brooke Mueller is telling friends ... the pictures TMZ posted showing her carrying what looked like a crack pipe are misleading ... because the only thing she was smoking was marijuana.

0713-brooke-mueller-tmz-ex-8
Brooke is saying she doesn't use the pipe to smoke cocaine -- she claims it was only pot and it's perfectly legal, because she has a marijuana prescription for anxiety.

But Mueller admits she's been on and off cocaine, telling friends, every few months she falls off the wagon and uses cocaine -- not crack -- but she also insists she hasn't been using for months.

Brooke says when she binges it usually lasts only around 12 hours, and then she snaps back into reality -- sometimes with the help of a little rehab.

And finally ... Brooke says there's no need for the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services to get involved in her life, because she's an involved parent and her kids are fine.

Where do you find doctors that prescribe weed for anxiety? They probably work out of those 'pain management' clinics.

Wow. Those kids are doomed.

Medical prescription for pot and uses a ad-hoc tin foil pipe to smoke it? No way. Zilch. Is she seriously suggesting that? Christ she must think people are stupid.

The woman is obviously in denial and needs some serious help. Actions speak louder than words.

Who would give an addict a prescription for marijuana?

"Brooke says when she binges it usually lasts only around 12 hours, and then she snaps back into reality -- sometimes with the help of a little rehab." Spoken like a true addict.

Question to the "responsible parent Brooke"...who takes care of your kids when you go on your 12 hour binges on a regular basis? This chick is so spun she doesn't know if she's coming or going. How pathetic is she...geesh

I could care less about the kids. I would like them to be used as a tool to make their lives even more Hellish.

Give the rats to Charlie, and revoke the child alimony payments from Brooke.

Fight - begin!

I was friends with a "recovered" meth addict, who was also taking meds for bipolar disorder. He was NEVER counseled, inside a state run addiction + mental health facility (they call it dual diagnosis condition). He was shown how to "beat" his addiction to meth; and therefore he was OK to drink and smoke cigs and smoke pot. (This is by his psychiatric professionals combined with court officials, who sanctioned his "rehab.")

So.....as an advocate for MMJ, this type of excuse from a known drug addict who has not kicked any of her "substance of choice" drug for any respectable timeframe, discredits all rehab treatment.

She has issues. She needs to stop talking to the press and get off that stupid reality show and stop trashing the entire MMJ movement, you crack whore.

Look, if you have a prescription for marijuana you should probably be skilled at rolling a joint or more so, owning a couple of glass pipes or one hitters. Did she really need to make an aluminum foil pipe? The whole thing sounds a little strange to me.

@Tiffany "less than a minute ago

Actually, compared to many anti-anxiety/sleep medications it's quite benign. Particularly benzos and z-drugs. The physical withdrawal problems from those can be as bad as alcohol (that's a side issue, but I think over-prescription of certain sleep aids is a time bomb). The chief problem with cannabis is a increased risk of mental illness (just like alcohol) and the unhealthy ways in which people use it with tobacco. In terms of physical addiction it's a non-issue, but people can become habitual users and waste their time.

The thing that gets me is that someone who claims to be motivated enough to go to a doctor to get a pot prescription isn't motivated enough to get a pipe, vaporizer, or other method of taking a hit. And just happens to have to resort to a tin foil pipe. It's not plausible. $55k a month and can't afford a pipe? Lol. Worst excuse ever.

Giving a drug addict pot for anxiety? How about giving an alcoholic beer for their nerves? Who ever prescribed that to her should face charges, just like she should.

She's so full of crap, weed wouldn't help with anxiety, it would induce it due to the paranoid side effects, the medical use of this drug is for cancer patients, glucoma, MS, etc. A doctor would prescribe Xanax, Valium, Klonopin, Ativan for anxiety. Addicts lie to cover their addictions all the time, she needs help.
