Mom Facing Charges In South San Francisco Child Pot Brownie Case

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – A South San Francisco woman accused of allowing her 4-year-old daughter to eat a brownie laced with marijuana has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor child endangerment.

Nineteen-year-old Marisela Guadalupe Barraza entered the plea this week.

Authorities say Barraza was arrested after her sister noticed the 4-year-old had slurred speech and droopy eyelids on Sunday. The sister took the girl the next day to a hospital, where tests revealed she had marijuana in her system.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe says Barraza initially denied the girl had ingested marijuana, but later told authorities the girl grabbed the pot-laced brownie before she could stop her.

Barraza allegedly described the incident as “no big deal.”

    Any MORON can have a child but it does not make you a parent. I hope this little girl is taken away from this idiot for good. Oh and then sterilize Ms. Barraza.

    What has become of people these days? There is so much in the news now about child abuse and neglect. I don’t get it. I guess because they are children themselves when they have them. Anybody that isn’t respouncible to not get pregnant isn’t going to take care of the kid.

    an accident is an accident
    a child eats something they shouldn’t by accident and the parent are to blame ?
    how about curiosity killed the cat
    blame the parents for not teaching her what she shouldn’t eat
    rather than stating mom gives daughter pot
    that is a very poor perspective
    they make the mom seem like she is purposely drugging her kid
    i ingested half a bottle of motrin when i was a kid cuz they looked like m&m’s
    i don’t blame my parents my curiosity led me to the bottle i opened it i ate it because i wanted candy i don’t blame my parents i blame myself
    i’m the one who took it
    if the mom puposely gave her daughter drugs then be mad
    truth is 87% of americans have very strong drugs in their homes
    and i doubt any parent would want their children taken away because of one accidental ingestion
    think before you judge no one is perfect and accidents happen

    Having marijuana brownies in your house isn’t an accident. Do I need to say more?

    SHE OBVIOUSLY SHOULD’VE BEEN IN SCHOOL BEING A TEENAGER RATHER THAN MAKING BABIES. SHE IS TOO YOUNG TO BE A PARENT LET ALONE STUPID ENOUGH TO NOT BE PARENTALLY RESPONSIBLE OR OBSERVANT OF HER CHILD.
