Photo Of Baby With Bong Sparks Investigation


Photo: KSDK
The 19-year-old mother said this photo is a joke, and that she doesn’t allow her child to smoke pot.

She may have to put those Mother of the Year dreams on the back burner for awhile.
A Keystone Heights, Florida woman allegedly took a photo of her 11-month-old baby holding (and seemingly hitting) a bong, and then had the monumental lack of judgment to post the picture on the Web.
After the photo sparked online outrage, the Florida Department of Children and Families has launched an investigation, reports KSDK.
The 19-year-old mother was quoted by numerous Jacksonville, Fla., new sources as saying the picture was a joke, and that she doesn’t let her child smoke marijuana.

The mother told Channel 4 in Jacksonville that she has a “drug evaluation” scheduled for Friday, and the baby will be checked out by a pediatrician.
No charges have yet been filed in the incident.
