More burnout Breeders film their kid smoking pot

Not Cheech and Chong

Video of Pot-Smoking Toddler Leads to Couple’s Arrest:

Parents arrested after toddler is filmed smoking cannabis pipe:

Police in Hesperia, California arrested 20-year-old Melanie Soliz and 24-year-old Blake Hightower on child abuse charges. It seems they allegedly recorded their 24-month-old son smoking a bowl. Police say that the kid was only taking resin hits. I don’t know if that’s better or worse.

Anyway the video allegedly shows the toddler taking 3 separate hits off the bowl.

Police say that an anonymous tipster told them that this probably isn’t the only time they let the boy smoke pot.

And before you legalize it now experts decide to chime in the pot was legal as both Breeders possess medical marijuana cards. I wonder what ‘afflictions’ they have that they were able to get the cards with. I’m thinking cancer and glaucoma were not among them. I would even go as far to say that the marijuana they had wasn’t really medical. You know, if the feds really wanted to crack down on California’s weed laws they’d go after the ‘doctors’ who are prescribing this crap for anyone who basically asks for it.

Say what you want about booze, which I’m also not a fan of, I can’t recall any stories of kids being recorded doing shots of tequila.

And the ‘best’ part is that Soliz is 6 or 7 months pregnant. Find me any reputable doctor that would prescribe weed for pregnancy. That kid is going to be a burnout before he’s even born.

Thanks to Marne for the tip.

    I agree with what was said below — the pot isn’t the problem, it’s bad parents that are the problem. There are plenty of bad parents out there giving alcohol to toddlers and small children, I’d even be willing to bet far more than there are people giving pot to their kids. I rarely smoke since becoming a parent, but I, too, have been known to enjoy some pot once in awhile. I would NEVER even imagine giving it to my child. Maybe when he’s an adult, we can share in that kind of thing, but even then I would never introduce it to him. Same goes for alcohol and nicotine. If he decides to use any of these things once he’s old enough to make that decision, that’s his call, but hell if I’m going to be the one to openly condone, let alone introduce, such behavior.

    As far as kids finding your drugs, good responsible parents should hide drugs the way good responsible parents should hide guns — in a locked case without an easily-guessed combination.

    for the record, smoking resin is not only way worse-it tastes awful.

    This isn’t about the drugs-its about people who do drugs behaving like asshats. There are plenty of parents who smoke. you never read about them here because they’re not baseheads trying to smoke out their 2 year olds. These people make those who need and use these cards look foolish.

    I can’t imagine what her disability is? Color blindness maybe-the blonde looks horrible on her with DARK haired features in her pic? No babe, you don’t look cool. my 12 year old niece has a better picture on facebook.

      I completely agree Steve, smoking resin is the equivalent of eating food out of the trash, its rank, and the fact they gave that to a kid is disgusting. I 100% agree with everything you said.

    OK, so I will be the first to admit that I love to smoke weed, I am not a burnout, I work in a very professional industry, make a sound living, always pay my bills, am hardworking etc etc, but I occasionally like to puff on a joint to relax or have a good time. Having said that though, my habits will never ever be known to my children (when I have them), thats not something they need to be aware, certainly not a part of. Its deadbeats like them that give weed a bad name and make it hard for people to see through that.

      No matter where you hide your weed, the kids will find it (usually around age 15-16ish), and they’ll be much better at hiding it than you will. 99% guaranteed.

        That is why I ahve no intentions of ever having it in the house. Hopefully I wont even want to even have it by that point, but one thing I can guarn-damn-tee is that no drugs will ever be brought into my house by me.

          Everything changes when you have little ones to care for. :)

          • Ally

            Thats what I am actually hoping for. I grew up with it around me as a child, and I have always hated that my mom and her friends allowed it in the house, never around house, but there were bongs around the house and I knew the smell well, I would consider myself a lousy parent if I brought that onto my children.

            I have a feeling you’ll be a good parent. ;)
            The ones who are worried about being lousy parents usually turn out to be some of the best.

            Thank you DodiaFae, that is really nice :)

    Throw the missing words in there. I didn’t realize there was no edit.

    Well, if you really want have SEVERAL photographs of me as a toddler drinking beer from a shot glass and beer cans. My dad always gave me a sip or put some in a shot glass. And he thought it was really funny to photograph it. This behavior IMO is more about the individuals and less about the substance.

    To use a modified quote from the movie Parenthood:

    You know, Mrs. Buckman, you need a license to buy a dog, to drive a car – hell, you even need a license to catch a fish. But they’ll let any butt-reaming asshole be a (Parent).

      Love this quote.
       
      TRENCH!!!  We need a quote banner.  One for the great quotes and one for the tardiest quotes.

    Oh, sure! There are plenty of stories about parents letting toddlers drink wine or beer to see them drunk. I wish I had some links, but some Googling should find it. I’m no fan of ANY mind-altering substance, including coffee, alcohol, pot and meth – though I am for the equal treatment of substances (ie: why alcohol and cigs but not pot and shrooms? it’s pretty damned arbitrary)
    HOWEVER, this story isn’t about legalizing pot. These two mental giants would have had pot with or without their “get pot” cards. It’s when they passed it to their kid that this became BB material. I dislocated my pinkie once, and was prescribed Lortab. It’s a narcotic. I took it, but I didin’t slip my son any, even if it WOULD have calmed him waaaay down. You can thoroughly do your own substances, but not with kids. Not near kids. I –

    and Disqus won’t let me see what I’m typing so I won’t ramble on any further.

    alcohol and cogs but not pot?But this hasn’t got much to do with legalization in my mind, whether mums amd pops up

    • Eretrea

      See, that last line there that makes no sense? Disqus wouldn’t let me see or alter it. Darn it!

      I don’t even let my kids have caffeine (though some studies have shown that it actually helps kids with ADHD… but, as hyper as mine can be, it’s the age, not a medical condition.) And I’ve known some parents who’d give their kids a taste of wine (or even the foam off the top of their beer… my FIL used to give that to my husband when he was little), but these people should have the book thrown at their heads and have their cards revoked (why should the taxpayers pay for their “high”, too?)
