WASHINGTON – Mother of a 22-month-old son has been arrested after she allegedly forced him to smoke marijuana out of a bong.
An anonymous handed a video clip to police which shows Rachelle Braaten, laughing as her toddler son inhales smoke from the drugs pipe.
Police took the child’s parents into custody and search of the residence turned up 40 marijuana plants and several firearms.
The toddler, as well as his 5-year-old brother, were removed from the residence and placed into protective custody.
Braaten was booked into the Lewis County Jail and charged with manufacture of marijuana and delivery of a controlled substance to a minor. Her bail was set at $20,000.
