RALEIGH — Police charged a Raleigh woman with misdemeanor child abuse Tuesday after her 3-year-old son showed up at his day care center with marijuana, court records show.
The child thought the marijuana, packaged in small portions, was candy and asked his fellow preschoolers to eat it, according to an arrest warrant filed Tuesday at the Wake County Magistrate's Office. A teacher at the day care center took the marijuana before any of the children could eat it, court records show.
Lakesha Marie Mials, of 208 Colleton Road, sobbed and told a Wake magistrate Tuesday that she had no idea where her son found the two plastic bags of marijuana that he had in his pocket and backpack when he arrived at day care center.
