This is one of those stories that makes the people at Teensavers so mad.   How could it not?

Police in Reno say a couple is facing charges after their toddler accidentally ingested heroin.

The baby was hospitalized last week, and now both parents face child abuse charges.

According to the Reno Gazette Journal, Vizina told investigators she and Robinson smoked heroin Saturday night before she went to work at an escort service, and that the child ingested the heroin while Robinson was responsible for the child.

Robinson apparently left the child unattended for a brief time in the living room.

Drugs should not be in the same home as children, regardless if they are 18 years old or 18 months old.

Parents need to maintain a drug free environment for their children.  It’s not an option.  It’s a responsibility.

 

 

Kids have access to drugs.

Sometimes they go seeking them. Sometimes they accidentally find them. Sometimes they become drug users just by being in the room.

In Connecticut, a kindergarten student had a most unique set of items for show and tell when he came to school on Monday; heroin.

The boy wore his step-father’s jacket to school, and unknowingly was transporting 50 bags of heroin.

When he brought them out for show and tell, the teacher phoned the principal, who then phoned authorities.

When the 35-year-old Santos Roman showed up to retrieve the jacket and the heroin inside, police were waiting for him.

State services are caring for the boy until other relatives are located.

These sorts of stories are not rare. They happen more than people thing. Kids find substances and bring them to school. We’ve seen marijuana, cocaine, pills, and heroin brought to school by an innocent child.

These parents are surely setting bad examples for their kids.

There is no word on whether or not the kid had any drugs in his system. That certainly was not reporter by local media outlets in Bridgeport.

This story comes on the heels of a Las Cruces, New Mexico couple arrested after their children tested positive for cocaine.

Eric Lee Estrada, 30, and Stacey Carreras, 26, face four countes of negligent child abuse.

Apparently the couple was smoking cocaine and possibly doing so in the presence of their children.
