What in THE HELL is wrong with people? – Video Appears to Show Uncle Teaching 2- and 5-Year-Old Nephews to Smoke Pot – Local News | News Articles | National News | US News

WATAUGA, Texas — A 17-year-old faces a felony charge of injury to a child after police found a videotape that appears to show him and another man teaching his 2- and 5-year-old nephews to smoke marijuana, police said.

The video shows two children being taught to smoke marijuana and the men encouraging them to “get high,” police said. A man can be seen placing a marijuana cigarette into a baby’s mouth and, in another part of the video, a different boy is shown smoking on his own.

“The video contains disturbing images of the young children being badgered into smoking a marijuana cigar, commonly referred to as a ‘blunt,”‘ according to a release from the Watauga Department of Public Safety.

The bail for Demetris McCoy, 17, was set at $150,000. He remained in jail Friday night, police said.

Police found the video Feb. 22 while investigating McCoy and Vanswan Polty, 18, in connection with some area burglaries. Polty faces burglary charges and is free on $22,000 bail, according to court records.

The children have been in the custody of Child Protective Services since last week, a spokeswoman said.
