Very trajic . There is nothing more to say then be careful don't leave a child alone for a minute . There is no excuse if this is true but we all know no matter how hard we try we often run to the other room for the phone , get distracted . Be careful think it takes such a short period of time for tragedy to happen around pool homes or even a bathroom like here . This was more ignorance in my mind then anything else just tragic . Same with leaving kids in a car while running into the store . We are all tempted with 3 kids so we can just grab the milk and cigarettes . Yet the consequences , car jacking , kidnapping , escape into traffic . Drive in convenience stores should get local support and zoning approvals becuase they are needed . God Bless my prayers go out to for this child and Mother .

The baby is dead because of the immoral and greedy justice system we have here.

If pot was legal I believe the baby would still be alive today.

Shoot no....what they should do is make her smoke pot(since it was so important for her to have it) until she kills herself...that way it will be a slow death...it can happen if you smoke it continuously...non stop....but thats my opinion.I am sure they can come across alot of pot to give her...they conviscate it everyday from drug dealers anyways...maybe they will get lucky and she will get a hold of some bad pot and it will make her really sick...and if thats the case..they should keep forcing her to smoke it!See if she feels it was that important to walk away from her child to buy while he was drowning in that bathtub!

A dope drop off doesn't take half an hour unless she was exchanging sex for drugs.

She should be given the choice of giving the dealers name or facing the death sentence.

The child didn't put itself in the water, therefore she drowned (murdered) the child.

The dealer should face the death sentence.

Time to get scum off the streets and into the fiery pit where they belong.

There are many children dead because of the drug war. That's a fact and this is no different.

Then who do you blame for the drug war? The drug user's or the government that makes a lot of money from the drug war? If she was buying moonshine I could see where you could be coming from because everyone of age has the right to buy alcohol at their own convenience, that can't be said with pot unless you are a rich boy or maybe have good government connections.

The mother didn't plan to kill her baby , but the drug war has become such a reliable source of income for the government it could care less about any child that gets in the way.

This baby is dead because of the ignorance of most of the people in this thread, either being to stupid or to afraid to attack to problem at the source.

You need to re-read the news article. The baby died of neglect because it's own mother thought it was more important to buy pot.

The baby is dead because of the ignorance of the people posting here?!?!

That's well beyond stupid!!

Do you smoke a couple blunts, drink an entire bottle of hard liquor, snort 3 or 4 lines of coke, smoke four or five "rocks", or gulp down a handful of "stupid pills" before you start posting your jack@ss comments here?

You are a 100% pure, not from concentrate, unadulterated, unfiltered moron!!!

No, he probably wouldn't have survived as long as he did.
