Parents accused of teaching tots how to smoke pot


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A father and stepmother from Walworth are accused of teaching their young children how to smoke marijuana.

  Mathew and Ashley Mathias are charged with child neglect for providing marijuana to the father's 9-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter when the family lived in Madison.

  A criminal complaint says they also blew marijuana smoke in the face of their 1-year-old son and let him lick a marijuana pipe.

  The 9-year-old boy told investigators that between the first and fourth grades, he smoked marijuana more than 30 times.

  In Dane County Circuit Court Thursday, the Mathiases were ordered to have no contact with the three children.

  Mathew Mathias is also charged with delivering marijuana to minors and both are charged with possessing drug paraphernalia.
