Police say NY teen parents made toddler smoke pot
MAYVILLE, N.Y. (AP) — Police say a pair of New York teenagers forced their 23-month-old child to smoke marijuana.
The Chautauqua (shuh-TAW’-kwuh) County sheriff’s office tells The Buffalo News (http://bit.ly/18rNhgX ) that the toddler’s parents and grandfather allegedly helped or watched the toddler smoke marijuana from a lighted bowl on Dec. 5 in an apartment in western New York.
Authorities say 17-year-old Jessica Kelsey, 18-year-old George Kelsey and Jessica’s 54-year-old father, Don Baker, were arraigned Friday on charges of second-degree reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child. They are being held in lieu of $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond.
The toddler and another sibling are in the care of Child Protective Services.
No information on attorneys for the three was available.
