Furniture beats kid for eating weed

India Couch

TPD: Mom beat kid for eating her pot:

Tampa police say woman struck 1-year-old who ate some of her pot:

Who says weed doesn’t make you violent?

22-year-old India Couch (Really? Is your sister’s name Bangladesh Sofa?) of Tampa, Florida was arrested for allegedly beating a 1-year-old in her care with a sandal until welts were raised on the child’s body.

The reason for such rage was when the child was left unattended the kid went through Couch’s purse, found some of her weed, and ate it. Rather than taking the kid to the hospital for ingesting the illegal drug she must have thought it was better to beat the child for depriving her of her buzz.

The child was not the only one to feel her reefer wrath. when an adult tried to protect the child Couch allegedly beat the man with a 5 pound barbell on the chest and back.

If I didn’t know any better I would swear that’s the behavior of a *gasp* drug addict. But people keep telling me that you can’t get addicted to weed and that it’s a victimless crime.

I would argue that the 1-year-old child disagrees.
