Man Smokes Pot While His Child is Born

A man in western Pennsylvania found the anxiety of childbirth too much to endure unaided. While his child was being born, he decided to bypass the customary cigar and celebrate with a joint.

A nurse of Uniontown Hospital was out on her smoke break when she smelled marijuana. She alerted hospital security who called police at 3:20 a.m. The police arrived to find the man puffing away in the hospital’s designated smoking area. He told police, “I’m having a baby and wanted to get a buzz.” The father then gave police a bag of marijuana that he had been hiding in his shoe.

As forthcoming as he was, the father will still be facing marijuana possession charges. The man was able to be released to a family member, but in New Orleans anyone charged with possession will be taken to jail.
