Parents lose custody of child for smoking pot...(child dies in foster care)

Somebody please tell me this isn't true. I'm having a hard time thinking the state took a child out of a home for the simple reason of the parents smoking a harmless ****ing plant.

Quote:
Alex was living with foster parents after DFPS removed her from her parent's home last November for "neglectful supervision."

Hill admits they were smoking pot when their daughter was asleep.

“We never hurt our daughter. She was never sick, she was never in the hospital, and she never had any issues until she went into state care.”

Update: KXAN provides more details, including some of the allegations the state apparently based its decision to seize the child on and the fact that the two-year-old was in the care of her grandparents when she was seized; the state determined her parents had "limited parenting skills." KXAN also reports something called "Residential Child Care Licensing" (the station does not identify what that is, but it appears to be a part of CPS) is now investigating the foster home and the service the state used to place Alex in that home.
If she was in the care of the grandparents, then perhaps it just wasn't the pot?

since my boy was born!

Says in the first sentence that child was taken for neglectful supervision, not smoking pot. Children are not taken from parents for drug use. Children are taken due to the effects of drug use.

This has to be the worst article ever written about something so tragic. It takes a lot more than just smoking pot to have your kids taken by CPS.. Something seems to be left out.

If you know the law and have children, put the children first and obey the law. I'm ok with folks changing the laws but parents who won't obey laws and have young children around are not putting the children first. Children dont need to be breathing in any second hand smoke and dont need to be around folks who put illeagle habits before their well being.

Well, some would argue the point that you have much more of a bond with your kids when you're smoking with then.

If they were smoking pot, 9/10 their kids were low men on the totem pole when it came to priorities. I doubt dicipline was very high on the list of to-do's of those parents. (No pun intended) It wasnt the sole purpose of having them taken away, but I'm sure it had an influence on it.

Everything is left out because we only have one side of the story; the parents. CPS and any other agency will not comment due to privacy concerns.
We do know that nothing says the child was taken for smoking pot. They just put the two sentences near each other to make it seems like they did.

Quote:

Two completely separate sentences. The child was taken away for neglectful supervision. That may or may not have had anything to do with smoking pot.



There are two issues here, first was the child taken away for a good reason. We don't know that and it'll be hard to ever know because CPS will not talk and the only story we have comes from the parents.

The other issue is the foster parents who caused the death of the child and rather or not CPS did everything in their power to make sure the foster parents were fit to take care of a child.
