Parents toddler pot: Two teenage parents from New York reportedly forced their 23-month-old child to smoke pot. USA Today reported Dec. 14 that not only were the parents involved in the act, but so was the child's grandfather.
Chautauqua County sheriff's office told the The Buffalo News that the toddler's "parents and grandfather allegedly assisted -- or watched -- the toddler smoke marijuana from a lighted bowl on Dec. 5 in an apartment in western New York."
Jessica Kelsey, 17, George Kelsey, 18, and Jessica's 54-year-old father, Don Baker, are being held on charges of second-degree reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child. All three were arraigned Friday and are being held in "lieu of $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond."
Once the parents were taken into custody by authorities, the toddler they allegedly forced pot on was placed in the custody of Child Protective Services along with a sibling.
So far no information from attorneys had been made available in this case.
The phrase "parents toddler pot" aren't the kind that one puts together when thinking of a healthy, loving family. If these people put a child who depended on them in harm's way, they should pay a high price for their irresponsible, careless actions.
