Uncle Caught Teaching Boys Aged 2, and 5 to Smoke Pot

WATAUGA, Texas — A 17-year-old faces a felony charge of injury to a child after police found a videotape that appears to show him and another man teaching his 2- and 5-year-old nephews to smoke marijuana, police said. The video shows two children being taught to smoke marijuana and the men encouraging them to "get high," police said. A man can be seen placing a marijuana cigarette into a baby's mouth and, in another part of the video, a different boy is shown smoking on his own. "The video contains disturbing images of the young children being badgered into smoking a marijuana cigar, commonly referred to as a 'blunt,"' according to a release from the Watauga Department of Public Safety. The bail for Demetris McCoy, 17, was set at $150,000. He remained in jail Friday night, police said. I'm not saying it's okay for a 2 year old to smoke weed, but I do think they are overreacting to this. Why put those children in foster care? I'm also curious to the punishment those two men will get. After all, they committed this crime in Texas.

"Police say they're not sure if those little boys will suffer any long-term health affects."

This is what we Dutchies would call "van een mug een olifant maken".
