Mother of child in ‘smoking video’ charged


The 18-year-old mother of a little girl seen apparently smoking a spliff in a widely circulated video has been charged.

The teen was charged on Friday with failing to provide care and protection to a child, contrary to the Child Care and Adoption Act, police spokesman Inspector Frankie Thomas has confirmed.

The Police Force and Social Transformation Ministry engaged in an intensive probe after a disturbing video surfaced on social media involving a minor.

The child was seen in the video coughing from smoking what appears to be a spliff while in the presence of an adult.

  1. Children having Children. Because she the mother is 18.How old is the child? At the age of 18 your brain is far from fully developed. I am not endorsing what she is alleged to have done. In my opinion,she needs in depth counselling,now.

    • Lock she r@$$ up abd throw away the key. If it was a man you would have want to lynch him. If she old enough to open she legs and breed then she should know better that give she child weed to smoke. Lock her up! Lock her up! Lock her up!!

      • Your comments are as ignorant as your moniker.She was 15 when she had the baby.The baby is three years young.Now the mother is 18.It goes back to my opening sentence above.Children having Children.They would need support from their relatives and by extension the village.
