Family First Comment: Yet ANOTHER story showing the link between marijuana and P. But of course we’re told that by decriminalising marijuana, the link will disappear. Yeah right!

A baby ate a cannabis oil capsule while her father was in the kitchen with his friends bagging up methamphetamine, a court has heard.

The 11-month-old’s young mother last week pleaded guilty to a charge of ill-treating/neglecting a child under the age of 18 at Napier District Court.

Judge Geoff Rea made an interim order suppressing the woman’s name with the matter to be revisited at sentencing next month.

Last July, after a 20-minute run to the shops for milk formula, the woman arrived home to find her daughter alone in the lounge and vomiting green foam, a summary said.

Her then partner – the child’s father, who minded the child while she was out – was busy bagging up methamphetamine in the kitchen with several associates. The mother wiped green tar from around her baby’s mouth and nose and retrieved a plastic capsule from her mouth.

“She knew straight away that her daughter had eaten a cannabis oil cap,” the summary states.
