…And in today’s episode of “Only in Texas,” a Texas teenager, Demetris McCoy, has been arrested after police found a video of him showing his 2-year old and 5-year old nephews how to smoke marijuana.
“In 25 years in law enforcement, I’ve never seen anything like this, either on a local level or the national level,” said director of public safety for the city of
Ure added that it’s probably not the first time 2-year old has been exposed to marijuana.
"The small child, he has a horrible cough. He’s got a smoker’s cough. His voice is raspy which is indicative of a lot of tobacco smoke. It’s horrible."
The children’s uncle, 17-year-old Demetris McCoy, and his friend, 18-year-old Vanswan Polty, have been charged with injury to a child. The felony carries a penalty of probation to 10 years in prison.
The boys were removed from their Watauga home last week after police uncovered the videotape while searching the house during a burglary investigation.
Child Protective Services will hold a hearing later this month to determine whether they will be returned to their mother. Authorities say the children’s mother claimed to have been asleep in a back bedroom during the incident.
I’m sure we can find a way to blame this on either: a) hip-hop or b) “the white man.” But just imagine the level of damage this can do to those tots’ brains.
See the disgusting video for yourself:
