St. Paul Couple Accused of Giving Weed to Infant

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – A Minnesota couple is accused of giving marijuana to their infant.

The Pioneer Press reports 31-year-old Richard Warren Martin was charged Friday in Ramsey County with fifth-degree drug sale and child endangerment, both felonies.

His wife, 31-year-old Molly Ann Martin is charged with child endangerment.

The complaint says police found seven marijuana plants growing in their St. Paul basement, along with paraphernalia, scales, dried marijuana and marijuana wax. 

According to a criminal complaint, Richard Martin told police his 1-year-old baby smokes marijuana and he would rather give his baby the drug than Tylenol. 

The complaint says his wife denied knowing anything about the operation, although it was discovered in plain view.

The complaint says the pair were evicted from the home and warrants have been issued for their arrests.
