Foster Dad Was High On Pot When He Left 10-Month-Old Girl To Die In Hot Car


Potheads love to preach about how marijuana is a totally harmless, all-natural herb that has never harmed anyone, anywhere. (Seriously–no other category of drug users is as obsessed with defending its use as marijuana aficionados. Even the most shameless bar rat: doesn’t pretend alcohol never hurts anyone.) This story suggests otherwise. A Kansas foster dad was allegedly high as a kite when he left the 10-month-old: girl he was caring for in his hot car, where she died.

Details of the case surfaced during a bond hearing for Seth M. Jackson, 29, of Wichita, who is charged with first-degree murder in the baby’s July 24 death. Bennett told the court Jackson had gone to his drug dealer’s house and bought marijuana.

He said prosecutors believe Jackson came home to consume marijuana, leaving the girl behind in the car…Police have said Jackson had apparently forgotten about her until something on TV jogged his memory. The girl was left in a the sweltering car with the windows up for more than two hours outside her foster parents’ home in Wichita. Temperatures at the time were around 90 degrees.

The saddest part is that Jackson otherwise sounds like a good guy who has fostered several children with his partner. This is proof that marijuana can transform a decent, responsible adult into a stupefied moron who stares at the TV as his child bakes in a hot car.
