A mother from Centralia, Wash. is in jail after a video surfaced showing her allegedly letting her 22-month-old son smoke marijuana from a bong.

Rachelle Braaten, 24, was arrested Friday when police's anti-crime team went to check on the boy's welfare and found 40 marijuana plants in the home, KOMO 4 News reported. The mother now faces charges of manufacture of marijuana and delivery of a controlled substance to a minor.

Braaten, who in the video appears to laugh while the toddler leans over the bong, allegedly said she felt "horrible" about the incident.

Tyler Lee, who is Braaten's fiance and the child's father, was also arrested after allegedly confessing to selling marijuana to a dispensary. Lee claimed he was not present when the video was being filmed. He was also charged with three counts of unlawful possession of a firearm, according to Q13Fox.

The 22-month-old, along with Braaten's 5-year-old child, are now in protective services while their mother remains in jail on a $5,000 bail. Lee, meanwhile, was released Monday pending filing of charges.
