Police received word from community member Andrew Holmes that a Facebook video featured a toddler smoking marijuana. According to Fox News, they are investigating the case of child endangerment.

“Well it’s still stupidity,” Holmes said. “But at the same time I want to rush to find out who these individuals are, get them some help because they need to be incarcerated and counseling but I want to mainly make sure we get emergency response to find out who this child is.”


The Department of Children and Family Services has been notified and the Special Victims Unit has been tracking down the origin of the video.
