Teen parents and grandfather made their toddler smoke pot
Daily Mail ^ | 14 December 2013 | RYAN GORMAN

Posted on 12/15/2013 6:29:44 AM PST by moonshinner_09

Teenage parents and a grandfather were arrested this week and accused of making a toddler smoke marijuana. Mother Jessica Kelsey, 17, father George Kelsey, 18, and grandfather Don Baker, 54, all of suburban Buffalo, encouraged or helped a 23-month-old child smoke marijuana earlier this month, officials said. The baby was encouraged, helped or observed smoking from a lighted bowl December 5 in the family’s Mayville apartment, according to an affidavit cited by a report in The Buffalo News.‘They packed the marijuana pipe, lit it for the baby and gave it to him and encouraged him to inhale...it's just unbelievable,’ Chautauqua County Undersheriff Charles Holder told WIVB.It is not clear how authorities became aware of the incident, but the station noted it may have been videotaped.

Disgraceful: Grandfather Don Baker, 54, did nothing to stop the baby from smoking from the bowl, authorities said The stoner trio was arrested and arraigned Friday on charges of second-degree reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child. You have a 23-month-old child who's completely helpless, can't really say yes or no, wants to please their parents and grandparent, and this is what you do?’ Jodie Altman, Executive Director of Renaissance House told WIVB. ‘There should be some serious consequences… unfortunately, when babies are having babies, that's what happens,’ she added. They are in custody in lieu of $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond. The toddler, along with another sibling, is in protective custody.

From the pic how can the grandfather help the couple when the grandfather is dumber than the couple is.Hopefully this child will be removed and never allowed to see parents again.

At least they’re married-unless they’re brother and sister.

Wait, the mother was 15 when she had the kid? I hope the sibling is younger. We will adopt them, so they can be Conservatives, not White Trash.

More socialist crap for people not taking responsibility for their actions.

“The Jukes family was a New York hill family studied in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The studies are part of a series of other family studies, including the Kallikaks, the Zeros and the Nams, that were often quoted as arguments in support of eugenics, though the original Jukes study, by Richard L. Dugdale, placed considerable emphasis on the environment as a determining factor in criminality, disease and poverty.” Wikipedia

When I first saw this, I thought, “Arkansas, Mississippi, etc”, but the mug shot photo says “Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office”. Hmm. Neighbors of the big HillBillies...

Oh no, I hope those jackbooted thugs from the county government don’t steal this poor child away from his loving parents just because they wanted him to enjoy herbal refreshment that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson used every day of their lives.

What happened to a woman,s right to choose? Hell, she could had the baby legally killed with a scalpel, to the back of the head, and didn’t, but she can’t share her “recreational pot”, that we are told is medicinal, and healthy, with her own baby boy to calm him down?..

It isn’t like she was exposing him to second hand smoke from a cigarette..

The men, father and grandfather, can’t interfere, or be called misogynist, and bullies.. It’s all getting very confusing.. :)

Yes, this IS horrible and stupid.

I’m interested to know how the incident was observed.
The popo refused to say how they caught the child-abusers,
but it MIGHT have been recorded. ??

My tin-foiled brain is wondering if they were observed via
X-Box or other tv device.

If that was the case, is it right?

Wait a minute! Why is this bad? Pot is harmless,right? It’s all natural and good and should be legalized, so why can’t these people share such natural goodness with their baby,make him feel good!-happy, mellow little family! Pot smoke isn’t as bad as cigarette smoke, so it’s all good. They were just showing love! When it’s legal, this will be an admirable family ‘bonding’ moment! /sarcasm

Hillbillies are in Chappaqua, just north of NYC. This is Chattaqua County out west, south of Buffalo, near Jamestown. Significantly less “suburban.”

Wait, I thought we were told marijuana was good. They were just holding to good wholesome family traditions during the holiday season.

She’s 17 now. The baby is 23 months. She was 15 when she had it. And probably no more than 14 when she conceived it.

Northeasterners and Left Coasters don't like to admit it, but there is white trash in all 50 states (57 for the Obammunists). It's not an economic thing, either, it's about values. I've lived in Arkansas, and in upstate New York; both have their share of good, upstanding people...and slimy white trash dregs.

So were my five-—virtually all kids were exposed in the 50s and 60s.

So what?

The only surprising part of this story is that the teen parents are apparently MARRIED. This should make it a front-page item.

Well gee what do we expect? The “medical” marijuana types have encouraged and fostered the belief that marijuana is not only harmless but actually beneficial. If this is so (which it’s NOT by a longshot) then what possible harm can there be to make a kid smoke it? They were giving him MEDICINE according to the idiots who started and encourage this movement.

I've never heard that. Do you have source/link, please?

One of my memories from my paternal grandmothers house was the pall of smoke that flowed out the front door onto the stoop when she answered the door.

Somehow all 5 of her kids and 20 of her grandkids managed to survive...

I agree; I was being semi-sarcastic about the knee-jerk media bias against Southerners and for the Clintons.

“I hear a Jeff Foxworthy joke coming.”

I’m thinking this has all the elements of a new reality TV series.

Who’s suggesting that? I believe you were pointing out that all she wanted to do was share her pot and that it wasn’t like she was exposing her to second-hand smoke, as if that was worse,maybe I misunderstood.
I smoked cigs for years, but not in my cars or homes because I chose not to expose my kids to a smokey environment because I believed it to be unhealthy for them, I doubt anyone here is suggesting that it is.
But if a parent chooses to do so, then that’s their choice, I’m not suggesting the death penalty or any other capital punishment
