    I think the charge for "letting" the child inhale the smoke was based on the child being within proximity of the person smoking the bong. I don't think the kid was taking hits directly.

    It’s amazing how many people read the headline and are ready to convict without any facts other than what the sensational headline declares.

    Question 1. Was this an illegal grow, or are these MedMJ people growing legally?

    2. Did anyone See her give the child MJ,or is this second hand smoke?

    3. Why were the firearms declared “illegal possession”?

    I thought we lived in a Country where you are innocent Untill proven guilty?
