A mother is in jail for allegedly making her 22-month-old son smoke marijuana from a bong.
Rachelle Braaten from Centralia, Washington is seen in a video letting her son smoke marijuana. After police were alerted to the video, their anti-crime team went to check on the boy.
In the video, Braaten could be seen laughing as the toddler leaned over the bong. She later said she felt “horrible” about it.
“I guess it was a joke and a stupid mistake that wasn’t really funny,” she told police.
The child’s father, Tyler Lee, was also arrested after confessing to selling marijuana to a dispensary. Lee said he was not in the home when the video was filed. But he was charged with three counts of unlawful possession of a firearm.
Both of Braaten’s children, 22-month-old son and 5-year-old child, are now in protective custody while she is in jail on a $5,000 bail.
