Washington state may have legalized recreational marijuana use, but we're sure that law didn't apply to children. One "mother of the year" contender thought otherwise.

Rachelle Braaten was arrested recently for manufacture of marijuana and delivery of a controlled substance to a minor. That minor was her 22 MONTH OLD CHILD.

The incident was caught on camera, which you can check out in the video below.

Braaten offered a weak explanation for her behavior. Saying that it was a 'dumb joke'. That dumb joke got the child's father arrested (he is not in the video), and the child was placed in protective care.
