An Adelaide woman has been charged with supplying drugs to a child following police investigations.

News reports today say the woman posted a video on Facebook, which appears to show a child smoking marijuana using a bong, reports 9 news.

The woman can be heard in the background saying, “that’s my boy” and “you can tell he’s my kid”.

Police were made aware of the video and said they interviewed a woman yesterday before laying charges.

The 29-year-old from Whyalla is facing two counts of supplying controlled drugs to a child. Police said appropriate child protection notifications have also been made.

“Cannabis use is not accepted or acceptable at any level by South Australia Police, particularly when it involves children,” Superintendent Andrew Thiele said.

“We would ask the community to bear in mind the clear correlation between drug misuse and the negative impact on community safety, increasing levels of crime and the health and wellbeing of individual community members.”

Disgusting behaviour!  People are understandably outraged and asking why the child was not removed from her care?

  • How stupid can you get!!! Let’s not only give our child illegal drugs, but let’s broadcast it to the whole world as proof! Silly. Poor kid.


  • Um, what the F? She is clearly not fit to be a ‘mother’.


  • nah disgusting behaviour! i would be so ashamed of myself if i was her! she obviously has issues to think that this is ok and to even encourage this behaviour! this kid will have no hope if she doesn’t change! she needs to be a parent, not a best friend


  • I am totally disgusted by this mothers’ (if you can call her that) behaviour. Why would she let her son use drugs and then post it on Facebook. I agree he needs to be taken away from her for his own safety


  • Totally depraved! To subject your child to this AND post on social media …. sick!!


  • Where are the child protection services? I’m assuming they haven’t left him in this environment.


  • Why would you film this?
    She clearly fell through the cracks of the education system.


  • That is appalling. DoCS should surely be involved.


  • this is all kinds of messed up. How awful


  • Hope they both get help – no-one in their right mind would think this was normal behaviour.


  • I hope the 12 y.o. is removed by Family Services by now.
    As for the Mother, she sholdn’t only be charged she should go to gaol. Although wouldn’t have paid for it she should be charged it posession and supply. How long has he been “passive smoking”? How much has his brain already been affected?


  • So upsetting, Makes me wonder what sort of life the mother must have had to think this is normal! Sad all round.


  • Just when you think you’ve seen it all. How disgusting.


  • How utterly sickening and distressing. :(


  • Concerning ! Hope both mum and son get help and support.
