11-month old killed by foster mother was taken way from parents because of pot use

    An 11-month-old baby girl, taken from her mother by Colorado authorities after her boyfriend admitted to smoking marijuana, was allegedly killed by her foster mother, reports ABC7.

    Sydney Danielle White, 20, of Grand Junction took an unresponsive baby, Angel Lane Place, to Children’s Hospital in Aurora, telling hospital staff that she had “accidentally dropped” the infant.

    White later admitted to authorities that she had shaken the baby out of frustration because she couldn’t get her to stop crying.

    According to the arrest affidavit, White held the baby “by the neck with both hands and shook her multiple times.” She claims she she stopped after one of her children came into the room and said, “Mommy, stop it.”

    “White said the baby initially became lethargic and wouldn’t wake up, but that later she appeared to be doing better,” police said in a statement. “Later that night White took Angel to St. Mary’s Hospital when Angel’s right side became stiff and she was unresponsive.”

    After the child was taken off life support, the coroner listed the cause of death as “blunt force head injuries,” ruling her death a homicide.

    The child’s biological mother, Tierra Place, 17, explained that the child had been removed from her custody because she and her husband fought, and her husband told human services he used marijuana.

    According to Place, she approved White as the foster mother because White is her sister-in-law, married to her brother. Child Services reported said that the couple were in the process of adopting Angel.

    Ted Place, Angel’s father, has threatened to sue Mesa County.

    “You know I was seeing pictures of her, seeing videos, you know she was doing good, she was making good progress, and I was ok with the situation she was in,” he said. “And then, all of a sudden, I had just found out that your daughter is in urgent care in Denver, Colorado, and you need to come there. I just want Mesa County to pay for what they’ve done.”

    Sydney Danielle White is currently charged with child abuse, but the case remains open and further charges are expected.

    They most definitely can still take your kid. Stil lcan't smoke around them.or be so stoned stupid you cant take care of your kid. Also cant have it wher they can get their curious little hands on it. No different than being a wicked alcoholic and not taking care of your kids- Alcohol is legal but CPS will take your little tax deductions if you're too hammered all the time.

    I agree though there has to be more to it.

    I don't like this article, besides making me sick from the situation, i am a father of 3 and i smoke. hell, many parents in colorado do?? The perception of maurijuana and its legaliity, is why some of us chose to live here, so we don't end up with tragic shit like this happening. It seems to me, there would have to be a federal issue with marijuana, not state, to get there kid taken away. One of the reasons Colorado is trying to make it illegal for people to make hash oil at home, is because of parents doing it with children in the house! Its not illegal to make hash oil with children in the house, yet, so i just don't beleve one can have their kids taken away for simply smoking it.

    Im not saying for just simply smoking im saying being too stoned stupid to take care of your kids. Like i said, i think.theres more to the issue than JUST smoking because even before it was legal my little sisters baby popped positive for MJ in his system, CPS came to her house, and even then told her as long as she and baby daddy werent both stoned stupid there was no issue.

    The mother was 17, assuming the father was also under 21. I believe legal age to smoke/poses is 21
    So this could be the underlying issue to this story

    Ah then you ^^ are right. You do hae to be 21 to possess MJ. I didnt read the article I only saw it on the news so i didnt remember. any details about age.

    the husband, if under 21 should have gotten a red card, assuming he was at least 18. Having a red card could have prevented the law from taking the child. I do agree with you OL on parenting while fucked up. I don't think of marijuana users as getting fucked up but it can fuck someone up pretty good if your not used to it.

    Especially a baby. If i were to sit down and smoke a BOWL even i wouldnt be able to walk straight lol but I can take 100mgs Oxycodone with a 100mcg Fentanyl and no one would know a thing. Its all in how a drug affects you, and if you know youre going to get lit then you really shouldnt be caring for children.
