Mom Arrested for ‘Kids Smoking Pot’ Photos That Were Basically the Opposite of Cute (VIDEO)

by Nicole Fabian-Weber on November 12, 2012 at 3:32 PM

baby and weedUs moms. We're cuckoo for photo-ops, aren't we? We'll do almost anything to get an adorable picture of our little ones. But one photo that ought to be skipped over is the "Baby and Child Smoking Weed" one. Unless, of course, you want your kids taken away from you. And you like being arrested. Two Kentucky women -- mom Tracy Hensley and grandma Beth Hensley -- were recently arrested and charged for cultivating and trafficking marijuana when a film developer called police after he emerged from his darkroom, photos of kids "holding marijuana" and "marijuana joints rolled up ... attempting to smoke them" allegedly in his clenched hands.

I know, I can't believe anyone uses film anymore either.

Apparently, while the photos were being developed, someone called up and asked to cancel the order. But alas, it was too late. (Ya burnt, ladies!) Police got their hands on the memories evidence, and, well, the rest is history.

Really, guys? Really? You're really going to (allegedly) take photos of your children -- and baby! -- with marijuana? What is wrong with you? I get that some moms out there have more common sense, and safety precautions, than others, but, if this is true, this takes the (idiotic) cake.

In some ways, though, this is a good thing. I mean, they got caught doing some they shouldn't have been doing -- even if it was in the privacy of their own home. If they didn't (allegedly) document this foolish event via 1950s film, none would be the wiser. So, at the end of the day, their failure to join the rest of the 21st century is for the best. And hey, they supported a dying business to boot. 

Can you believe this insanity?

    If you're going to do stupid things, at least be smart enough not to photograph it.

     I would never let my children smoke nor would I take pictures like that. I do however cook with hemp seed oil, eat hempseed, and teach my children the benefits of the marijuana plant. It's is an amazing plant. That does not justify what this mother did...just sayin.

    While I don't think marijuana should be illegal, giving it to children is just stupid.  There are reasons that in the states where it is legal, you have to be over 18 or 21 to posess it.  It's no different than giving a child that age cigarettes or alcohol.  They should have know better.

    See... It's true smoking marijuana does kill brain cells... How else could this situation be explained with any reason other than stupidity and lack of judgement/common sense. These ladies must have been high while taking this photo.

    I think it's crazy and inappropriate, but I'm shocked that most think it is. I mean if those on CM speak for the pulse of most women nowadays, then this kind of thing is accpetable and no one elses business. Their kids not yours.

    It may not have been film.  it could have been they sent in digital photos to get printed copies of.  

    But I gotta say, if you're going to photograph illegal activity, then you are just asking to get caught sooner.

    REALLY!!!    I'm getting, from the gist of this thread, that most of you are more upset that they got caught than the fact that the babies were given marajuana!  Unbelievable!  What adults do is their business but this is child neglect and abuse- those children should be removed permanently.
