It is unfortunate that teen violence has increased over the years. But the recent arrest of a Centralia, Washington mom, who allegedly posted a video of her 22-month-old smoking weed from a bong, may be the source.
This week, Rachelle Braaten, found herself in court after posting the disturbing video of her toddler smoking marijuana from a bong on Youtube. Police authorities also found 40 marijuana plants growing in the home. This heinous cell phone video footage caused national outrage and shock. The mother now faces charges of manufacture of marijuana and delivery of a controlled substance to a minor.
We wonder why our youth seem to have a lack of passion and respect for life. There are some people in the world not designed to become parents, and obviously she is one of them. I cannot think of one reason she would think this was funny, along with the onlookers laughing in the background.
Shame on her…let’s hope she receives the maximum penalty. It’s just too bad this is not the first time it has happened and probably not the last.
What is wrong with people?
