Mother Arrested for Letting 22-Month-Old Smoke from a Bong

The world’s worst mother may very well live in Centralia, Washington.

Police have arrested Rachelle Braaten, after she allegedly let her 22-month-old son use a bong, in an incident that has been captured on video.

Braaten is now looking at charges of manufacture of marijuana and delivery of a controlled substance to a minor.

Police recently stopped by the boy’s home to check on his well-being and confronted Braaten, who offered a weak explanation:

Well, it was like, you can’t see in the camera, but the person taking it, and then there was like a group of people there. And I guess it was a joke and stupid mistake that wasn’t really funny.”

Braaten also claims the child’s behavior didn’t change afterwards and she feels “horrible” about what happened. The boy’s father, who says he wasn’t there when the toddler put his face in the bong, was also arrested for selling marijuana to a dispensary.

The child is now in the custody of protective services.
