A three-year-old New York City girl arrived at school Friday toting marijuana in her backpack, CBS New York reports.

An employee at the New LIFE School in Harlem noticed that she reeked of pot and called police, who arrived at the scene and found 14 bags of the drug stuffed inside the girl’s pink Minnie Mouse backpack.

Later that night, police arrested 24-year-old Kelly Mena, who admitted the bags of weed belonged to him. He was charged with criminal possession of marijuana and criminal sale of marijuana. A friend of the girl’s father, Mena was allegedly responsible for placing the marijuana inside the backpack, though it’s not yet clear why.

This person should not have been aloud around the child. We are in no disagreement over its medical properties however this "accident" should not have happened. It is not responsible parenting or responsible cannabis use. I do believe there is such thing as responsible cannabis use, and yes even around children. This would defiantly not fall under those guidelines. No dealing, no exposure to bad elements including "friends", and certainly keep cannabis locked up just as you would alcohall don't use it around your children.


Put the weed in the wrong backpack; a sad mistake! Marijuana is a very healthy food if taken as an edible, not smoked. You can safely control how much or how little an effect of relief you want. It is a gentle and safe way to handle pain. There is a great $2.99 e-book on medical marijuana: MARIJUANA - Guide to Buying, Growing, Harvesting, and Making Medical Marijuana Oil and Delicious Candies to Treat Pain and Ailments by Mary Bendis, Second Edition. This book has great recipes for easy marijuana oil, delicious Cannabis Chocolates, and tasty Dragon Teeth Mints.
