The parents may have smoked pot but they managed not to let her die. Pathetic.....

Here is how life works:

If you CHOOSE to procreate you must take every precaution, follow all laws, and make your life's work your family so your child can prosper.

The parents failed and left it to the state to do their job.

And as we all know if you want a job done right you gotta do it yourself.

When you are careless with your personal responsibility the state may intervene. They are inept. Don't give them the chance.

From the link:

"According to court records, Alexandria's mother had a medical condition that does not allow for the child to be left alone with her. "

This sounds like it may have been the primary reason why the child was removed from the home.

I am sorry for the loss of this child.

Also from the link:

"She was placed into foster care for neglectful supervision because her mother and I smoked pot at the time," explained Hill.

According to court records, Alexandria's mother had a medical condition that does not allow for the child to be left alone with her. The TDFPS also received allegations that Hill used marijuana on a regular basis and on one occasion Hill almost dropped Alexandria while going down the stairs of the home as he was trying to hand the child to his sister.

During the month of November, Alexandria was being cared for by her paternal grandmother before the State intervened on Nov. 26.

The TDFPS concluded that "Through the assessment of the Department and family members of the parents, it appears the parents have limited parenting skills and need to develop their understanding of being protective of their child. Until these services are offered, the Department does not feel either parent can be the sole caregiver for the child."


Both parents smoked pot. Both parents were deemed unfit on an individual basis to care for the child.

With the information provided it seems like these folks weren't up to the task.

I have a feeling it's not either. For the record though the article tried to make it about pot.

I'm waiting for more info before commenting.
