Connecticut Dad Drops Marijuana Into Son's Lunchbox; Daycare Workers Call Police

Connecticut daycare workers found a marijuana cigarette inside a toddler's lunchbox last week.

John Sulzbach, the father of the 18-month-old boy, allegedly dropped the cigarette inside the container by accident while preparing his son's lunch, NBC Connecticut reports.

Workers at the Clinton Child Care Center called police at 12:16 p.m. after finding the joint, according to the Hartford Courant.

After the boy's parents agreed to let their home be searched, police found less than one ounce of the substance and other drug paraphernalia, according to the report.

Sulzbach, 33, was charged with "possession of a controlled substance" and "injury/impairing the morals of a child," according to NBC Connecticut. He is due to appear in court later this month.

The marijuana mix-up is not the first case where a child shows up to school with his or her parents' drug paraphernalia.

In September, a Missouri student brought his mother's crack pipe and methamphetamines to class for show and tell. Needless to say, the items didn't go over so well with the teacher.

The mother was arrested and charged with possession and first-degree child endangerment.
