The Smiths are certainly an example of a celebrity modern family. Not just Will Smith but every member of his family is known for their own individual work in the entertainment industry. Unlike celebrities who keep their kids away from the limelight, this family has always been open about their intimate things to the world. With the kids growing up, they are also giving more insights into their everyday life.

Jada and Will Smith have two children together, a son Jaden and a daughter Willow. While their parents are actors, these siblings have cemented themselves as musicians. But the freedom to be creative and open comes from their mother. In fact, unlike normal households, The Matrix actress let the family know of her use of psychedelics as well.

One of the biggest families in Hollywood is not afraid to say it like it is. Jaden Smith recently attended the Psychedelic Science conference in Denver, wherein he explained the usage of psychedelics and how it is far from a taboo in their household. As per him, it was Jada Smith that began the use of psychedelics and continued it for ‘a long long time‘.

But he said, “it just trickled and evolved”, as the rest of the members found their own way to do it. It has been a positive experience so far for the 24-year-old as it enabled him to get closer to his siblings Willow and half-brother Trey. It helped him sympathize with them and connect on a deeper level.

Jada Pinkett Smith started the Red Table Talk, wherein she would discuss the family and parenting styles of her own and other celebrities. Normal medications did not do it for her when it came to depression, but the herbal route proved fruitful.

The tight-knit bond with each other means they do a lot of things alike. Son Jaden also swore by his use of psychedelic mushrooms and how it helped him lose his ego and tear down a wall that frees him. But he was careful to point out how professional guidance is a must for any such consumption.
