Dec. 16 (UPI) -- Two teen parents from Mayville in upstate New York were arrested and charged with making their 2-year-old smoke marijuana.

The toddler’s grandfather, 54-year-old Don Baker, was also arrested.

The Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office has charged Baker, 17-year-old Jessica Kelsey and 18-year-old George Kelsey with second-degree reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.

During the alleged incident, the three adults “helped, observed or encouraged” the 23-month-old to smoke a lighted bowl of marijuana.

Following the arrests of the three suspects, the toddler and another sibling have been placed with Child Protective Services.
