TPD: Mom beat kid for eating her pot
WTSP ^ | May 30, 2011

Posted on 05/31/2011 12:14:14 PM PDT by nickcarraway

A Tampa mother is behind bars Monday after beating her one-year-old child for eating her marijuana.

Tampa Police say India Couch, 22, faces drug and felony child abuse charges. Investigators say the child was left unsupervised, found the pot in her mother's purse, and ate an undisclosed amount of the drug.

That's when police say Couch beat the child with a sandal and then hit the one-year-old hard enough to leave welts.

TPD also says this mother attacked her live-in partner with a dumbbell.

Yeah right. That "mother" knows exactly what amount of weight is missing from her pot bag down to the leaf. What is the bet the grass was purchased with welfare cash?

Beating the kid wont get the doobage back. She needs to think ‘exit strategy’.

Doubtful. While the plant still contains the trich's, without it being processed for oral consumption, most of it is destroyed in stomach acid.

If the baby can pick it up and chew on it, the baby will pick it up and chew on it. If you don’t want him eating your stash, don’t sit it down in front of him. Unless you want to follow him around with a Baggie for three days.

I've heard marijuana wasn't dangerous? Users can stop smoking faster than you can say ‘Barack Hussein Obama!

That’s how I took the title too for a second.

When I read the title, my first thought was how strong the kid’s teeth were.
