A 19-year-old mother from Keystone Heights, Florida, posted a photo of her baby with a BONG on Facebook. Um, was she high?!

baby with a bong

"If u look at the picture u can see that there is no bowl in the TABACCO (sic) pipe. And i took a pic to show one (expletive) person and it was a mistake. I would never ever ever let him get high," she told Channel 4 via Facebook.

In another Facebook posting, she wrote, "Do you realize how serious this is? i can go to jail and he can be taken away from me. WHY would you do something so (expletive) stupid? i know what i did was stupid but i would NEVER put by baby in harm. im (sic) so nice to everyone idk (I don't know) why you would do this to me."

The Florida Department of Children and Families is investigating, and is now drug-testing both the mother and the baby.

Who thinks this mom should have her baby taken away? Harmless photo ... or serious endangerment?

At 19 you think you know everything and then you grow up and learn you knew nothing. This picture makes me wonder what kind of home she grew up in, and what she saw as a child. She thought she was being cool,to her friends and her peers,sort of like the alchol pictures to some dim witted people. She made a huge mistake in allowing the bong to be in the child’s hands in the first place and then taking the picture strike 2. Posting it was strike 3 now she needs parenting classes and some strict rules to follow. But taking away this child will not make her any better of a parent, it will devastate her and the child in time. Help her, I think she is screaming for help, maybe she doesn’t have a support system like I have had all my life with my family. Everybody makes dumb mistakes and we usually pay for them in one way or another but take the child away is cruel.

Stupid is what stupid does! stupid 1; having a bong in the house as a toy for her infant child! stupid 2; posting it on facebook! sounds to me she doesn’t deserve a baby. next she will kill this child!

I think everyone complaining are hypocrites! This whole country is so up in arms over the smallest things….so f*ckn what she took the picture, hell I have pictures of me holdn a cigar at 7 (it was a halloween costume) I guess my mother should be thrown in jail…What hypocrites—-why dont everyone look through their childhood pics and have their parents thrown in jail for
1. all those nude pics when you were a child—-child pornography
2. pics when you were in an inappropriate costume ( I guess since I was Groucho Marx and had a cigar, my now 67 yr mom is liable for damages done to me.)


and her SO CALLED friend, I would never talk to her again…what a B*tch

how many people here have a photo of them drinking out of daddys beer can? or bottle? or have photos of there kids doing the same thing. Is this something that you or your kids should be taken away for?

yes it was stupid, let the thought of CPS comming in scare this young mom straight!

This baby needs taken away.It is a bong used for weed and she said she took the pic for only 1 person to see so why did she post it on Facebook?Probably so high herself she thought it was funny.Yes,babies will imitate what they see so what happens when she leaves her crack pipe or razor to cut her drugs with laying around?

Im a teen mother myself, but I in no way act like she does. I dont drink or smoke or anything. I dont even party like alot of these other teen mothers out there, cause I believe my child is my child and she is my responsability, so where ever I go she’s always right there next to me. Now having that said, I dont think taking the baby away from her is going to do anything. She should go into parenting classes or counceling, and then have someone watch her, how she interacts with her child or how the child acts for awhile. Maybe scare her a bit and show her pictures of what has happened to other babies of young mothers. I would def. keep an eye on her tho.

It does not matter the reason behind taking the picture. The point is that baby should have never been able to reach the bong in the first place. Let alone know how to use it. The child has obviously seen someone use it.The ‘mom’ should loose her child. Then maybe the child will have a fighting chance in life to be somebody & something & NOT a dope head.

stacey June 29, 2010, 12:14 PM

stupid? heck yeah! but at 19 we all did stupid things..the thing that worries me is she is obviously using so she needs to have counseling and random tests and parenting classes and if she fails anything she should lose him at least until she can prove she is a good parent.

The first mistake was taking a picture of it in the first place. Stupid, stupid!!That’s what happens when you have a baby at 19. I was one too, and I was not perfect. That said. If she wants to get high with that pipe, keep it hidden on a high shelf in your closet, far out of reach. Certainly do not keep it around for your baby to play or have access to. And most of all you moron, don’t take a picture of it and post it on the internet. Once you do that, it’s like opening up Pandora’s box. What a dummy.

I just love Jessica’s assumption that obviously this mother loves her baby. HOW CAN YOU TELL? To everyone who thinks this is so OK, it’s just an empty bong, so what? What would you say if it was “just” an “empty” crack pipe? What happens when the baby grabs needles off the floor? DRUGS are DRUGS and by the way, ILLEGAL! When you use drugs, you surround yourself with a certain type of crowd. You behave in a way that puts drugs first, not your kids - whatever your age. Good luck to this kid, he’ll need it.

Joanne June 29, 2010, 12:43 PM

I just read Shirley’s comment and I agree. Anybody who is ever “partaken” is aware of the leftover resin near the top and inside. A baby’s skin and nose are SO sensitive at this age, that this little kid probably ingested some whithout even knowing it.
It’s not a perfect world out there, but certain things should be put in perspective here. Obviously the mother gets high. Big mistake in letting everyone KNOW THAT. Gotta admit sweetheart, it’s illegal. Any other paraphanalia ya got around there? Maybe this will be a wakeup call for her.
Being a responsible, sober and alert mother should be #1 at any age.

If the drug tests on mother and baby come back negative…then ‘no’ she should not have baby taken away…it was a stupid mistake on her the time she probably thought it was cute…the bong should be thrown out!

Ahh FloriDUH, home of the nearly dead and pinhead. If only they wouldn’t breed.

A 19 year old pot smoking mother. That statement alone makes me afraid of this child’s future. She posted the picture on facebook, so she thought it was funny. I don’t think the youth of today realize how dangerous posting things on the internet is. But, the fact that the child is around drug paraphernalia is scary enough. I can’t judge her but I think a good scare is in order for her.

Anonymous June 29, 2010, 4:27 PM

Has this mother lost her mind?? (probably drug related reasons) You NEVER do anything like that around a child or even put something like that near a child… It is NOT funny, not even for one picture… Take that child away and make sure she NEVER has any more children.. Tie her tubes NOW………..

I don’t think its child abuse. The kid doesn’t look hurt to me. He looks like a chubby healthy baby. Its good that child welfare is testing her and the baby for drugs, but she shouldn’t lose her kid just for some silly picture. That’s ridiculous. It wasn’t in good taste to take that picture but it doesn’t mean she was harming the kid. You show me one parent that hasn’t ever made a mistake and I will show you a parent that isn’t being truely honest. Give the poos girl a break. Geesh. Everyone makes mistakes and as long as it didn’t hurt her kid, then its really no ones business.

What is this world coming to. I have had it with the way people are allowing their children to be around so many dangerous and inappropriate things. I fear for the children of the world. I have three grandchildren and fear they see and know way too much for their age, and they are very protected, but there is just so much you can do! This is not funny by any sense of the word!

Wow. I love hypocrisy. No one would think twice if mom came home and had a beer or whatever. I’ll take a stoner over a drunk anyday. Just because alcohol is legal doesn’t take away the dangers presented, only the stigma. Unless mom has a real drug problem leave them alone. She took a stupid picture. End of story.

LB June 30, 2010, 7:14 PM

Um she is 19 and has a baby… obviously she makes bad decisions. If the cops are already familiar with her… they should take the baby away.
