Huff Po – A mother from Centralia, Wash. is in jail after a video surfaced showing herallegedly letting her 22-month-old son smoke marijuana from a bong. Rachelle Braaten, 24, was arrested Friday when police’s anti-crime team went to check on the boy’s welfare and found 40 marijuana plants in the home, KOMO 4 News reported. The mother now faces charges of manufacture of marijuana and delivery of a controlled substance to a minor. Braaten, who in the video appears to laugh while the toddler leans over the bong, allegedly said she felt “horrible” about the incident. “I guess it was a joke and a stupid mistake that wasn’t really funny,” she told police. Tyler Lee, who is Braaten’s fiance and the child’s father, was also arrested after allegedly confessing to selling marijuana to a dispensary. Lee claimed he was not present when the video was being filmed. He was also charged with three counts of unlawful possession of a firearm, according to Q13Fox.
Oh c’mon now. Gimme a break. That was a bitch hit. Was that thing even lit? Thats no different than the tons of parents who take pictures with their babies and beer
So mom and dad are allowed to get shitfaced with little baby Joey and take pictures of him with beer but they can’t get a little high and take funny pictures of him playing with the bong? Such a double standard. The sooner this world realizes weed is no worse than booze, the better. Whether we’re talking about kids partying in college or babies taking bong hits. Its just a little weed. Like putting rum on your baby’s gums when they’re teething.
