The irresponsible parents of a 23-month-old boy have been arrested after it was discovered they tried to force him to smoke marijuana at their home in Buffalo, New York.

Nothing! Instead of calling police and rescuing his poor grandson from the clutches of his irresponsible parents, Don Baker, 54, seems to have thought that forcing his nieto to smoke marijuana was a good idea. What kind of abuelito does this to his own grandson?

It's unclear how police found out what happened on Dec. 5 , but it is possible that another person who was present at the time alerted them. The incident took place during a party and this trio of potheads even had the nerve to videotape it.

This last line if this story leads me to believe this is all propaganda. This story is inconsistent and doesn't make sense. If you're gonna conclude by saying cannibus is harmful you should mention at least one of the detrrimental effects, otherwise do some research on the safest most theraputic drug known to man

You are going to call pot evil because of the way three irresponsible adults use it? Some people go overboard with soap in the kid's mouth. I'm not sure that means Dial soap is a gateway drug.
