Kindergartener Brings Mom's Meth, Crack Pipe to Show-and-Tell

methpipestephen.jpg
Mommy calls this her "little helper."
Here's yet further proof that Missouri lives up to its billing as the "Meth Capital of the United States": A kindergartner in western Missouri recently brought his mom's crack pipe and $3,700 worth of crystal meth to his school's show-and-tell.

According to KCTV, the boy was told to bring important family items to share with his classmates September 6. Teachers and authorities in the small town of Sweet Springs (roughly halfway between Kansas City and Columbia) say they couldn't believe what the child then pulled out of his backpack.

"When I called the prosecutor about it, they said, 'You're kidding me, aren't you?" Sweet Springs Police Chief Richard Downing tells KCTV.

The boy's 32-year-old mother was charged with possession of a controlled substance and child endangerment. The boy is now in the custody of "loved ones" after mom posted $7,500 in bail Monday night. She's now getting treatment for complications from a recent gastrointestinal surgery.

Yep, we imagine that your child bringing your drug stash to show-and-tell could cause the ol' acid reflux to flare up again.

I'd like to see some proof that MO is the meth capital of the USA.  I've also heard the media accept that East Texas is the meth capital of the USA and state it on radio, print, and TV.  It was also said that Central California was, on the radio, while I was in Cali.  I think its time to admit this is all a bunch of hype to scare people into passing stupid laws that empower the government at the expense of everyone's privacy and freedom.  This is NOT a pro-meth statement, it's about responsible journalism; how can everywhere be the meth capital of the USA?

She lucky that the kid didn't decide to ingest any of the "little helper" or we could be reading about a homocide.

Um, why is it a crack pipe? Crack pipes are straight with brillo in the end. That has a bulb on the end to heat up the meth. I hate to contradict the writer of this paper, but it is clearly a meth pipe.

Oit of the mouths of babes...see why Casey Anthony silenced her child? You can't trust :em!

So sad- he was told to "bring important family items" to share.  Does that tell you the importance placed on this pipe in this home?  Poor baby is permanently scarred by drugs and neglect.  His mother doesn't deserve to ever see him again.  In Asia they exterminate their repeat offenders.  That would clean up a lot of problems in this country, wouldn't it?

It is really horrible, how can he do that, hope his mom will be helped by someone.

NO parent should have children if they are using drugs. period. it's completely irresponsible and stupid. i hope she doesn't get him back until she can PROVE without a doubt that she is clean and will stay that way< but at the first sign of a relapse, she should lose her kid completely

How the bloody fuck could that shitting Republican afford nearly $3000 in dope? And then bail her shitting Republican self out with a cool $7000 ?! Good grief.

This story breaks my heart.  So, so sad.  The mother is apparently so ill and the child sees this as a kid and thinks it's okay.  I never like to see families break up.  Prayers in order for this child and mother.  How could she afford such an expensive stash of meth?  Most people would have trouble with coming up with that amount of money.

That is horrible that women,i don't dare call her a mother because a real mother would not behaving in the way that she is should have her son taken away from her before she really hurts him. If it was that easy for him to get his mothers important crack pipe and stash of meth what's to say next time and I assure you unless she us in jail there will be a next time what's to say this little boy won't try to eat it. He shouldn't be with family he should be in foster care and I'm not one for the foster system but maybe that will wake this very stupid women up

This is terribly sad!!  Very heartbreaking.  My works cannot express but I do believe that this was God's work to pull that child away from that harm.  Praise God he didn't ingest any of it.  :(

I'm not a lawyer, but how can she be charged with possession when she didn't actually have any drugs?

That's fucked up, she may need help for herself but she needs jail time for what she put that kid through.

She dont nedd jail time, she needs help, What the hell does jail do to you if you on crack? NOTHING. help these people, do use our jails.

Praise God!

Praise God indeed.  Praise God for putting that little boy in that household where the mom uses/sells meth, probably in front of the kid.  Thank God that he put that kid in a house where, if mom IS selling, he will encounter all kinds of wonderful upstanding citizens who will help shape his bright future.  

Praise God indeed...

the kid is a minor and he was in possession, that means his parents are in possession

I'm willing to bet that wasn't the only thing they found, BUT how could they charge the poor child??  But a good question nonetheless.

The kid is a moron for bringing it to school.  They should jam a dead rat in his mouth.

fyi he brough meth...the drug from which there is no return.  Doubly so if she's also on crack.  She needs and I'm 99% she'll get jailtime and sending them away is the best thing for them, gets them away from all the drugs.  That's what she needs and what she deserves.

We can't judge this mother. Maybe her mother got her hooked on it? Maybe she was a sex slave and forced to smoke it. I'm just saying until we are God who are we to pass judgement on her. We don't know her or the life she's lived. Just pray for her and her son and let the justice system do their job. God loves her like he loves the rest of us.

Wow...dumbass?....don't you think a lawyer would bring this up in court?  Of course it didn't belong to the kid.

no return isnt true...took 2 years off my wife and I's life but now is a distant memory. its sad though to see the friends that didn't make it through, or continue to put their lives as well as those around them in peril for an addiction. its just sad to see these kids put in these situations, i hope they both get what they deserve, whatever that may be.

meth is a horrible drug, i was highly addicted for 4 years. my fiance was a cook. and i can say that u can change your life around. I hope that seeing that she got nailed that now she will realize what is important and walk away. I hope they give her jail time and rehab.
