Mother charged after smoking marijuana around her 11-day-old baby
A 25-year-old woman in Lake County, Fla., was charged with aggravated child abuse for allegedly smoking marijuana near her 11-day-old baby before the girl was rushed to a hospital with serious breathing problems, according to Local 6 News.
A 911 call apparently made by Antondra Sims led police to her Leesburg home Tuesday. When officers entered the home, they found a screaming baby and a room full of smoke, Local 6 News reported.
“I think my baby is choking,” Sims was heard saying on a 911 call. “She doesn’t look like she is breathing well.”
Sims’ 11-day-old baby was rushed to Arnold Palmer Hospital with life-threatening breathing problems, the report said. The child has recovered.
The woman was later charged with smoking marijuana around her daughter.
“Marijuana is bad enough for adults,” Leesburg police Capt. Steve Rockafeller said. “It is bad enough for teens and when you throw in the factor of 11 days old with these young developed lungs and different issues, it is just a very traumatic thing on the human body.”
Sims said she was not smoking marijuana around the child.
“I just want to say that I don’t think that it is fair that I have had to sit in jail for these charges during the last couple of days without a bond,” Sims said. “I just feel I have been really inconvenienced for something I didn’t do.”

Of course she didn't do it. It was all the other people there that were. You know, the invisible ones.\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\
