It probably made her feel free because she felt like it released her from her problems or made her not think about her problems.
Yes her mom is too lenient because it sounds like she does not really punish her for her actions but instead just lectures her.

!. I do not know why the defendant believed smoking weed made her feel more freely. I have never personally smoked weed, so I do not know how it makes individuals feel. I also do not have anger issues, so I don't know why the girl smoked in order to feel a certain way. Maybe the defendant smoked weed because she liked the feeling.
2. I do not think the mother was to lenient. The defendant was 18 which means she is grown up. Lots of people parent differently, and the defendants mother did not punish her daughter which is not wrong. The defendants mother approached the situation differently and I do not believe the defendant's behavior has changed because her mother is to lenient.

When smoking weed people say it puts you in a more relaxed and calm stage which she probably felt as well. That is why she said it makes her feel “free”.
Q2-I do feel that the mother was too lenient on her daughter because it seemed as if she had no consequences for her actions.
