(Sky News) - A mother who got her 22-month-old son to smoke her marijuana bong has been arrested, after mobile phone video emerged of the incident.
Rachelle Braaten was detained by police in Centralia in Washington state last Friday.
She is now facing multiple charges, including delivery of a controlled substance to a minor.
KOMO-TV said the 24-year-old reportedly told police: "I guess it was a joke and stupid mistake that wasn't really funny."
In the video the child can be seen briefly sucking on the bong.
He coughs and people can be heard laughing.
Braaten said her son did not act sick afterwards.
He has since been placed in protective care, along with his five-year-old brother.
Police also found 40 marijuana plants when they arrested Braaten.
She remains in jail on $5,000 (£3,350) bail.
Washington is one of very few states which allows the possession of small amounts of marijuana for personal use.
