CENTRALIA, Wash. —

A Centralia mother has been sentenced to 6 months in jail for allowing her 22-month-old to smoke marijuana.

KOMO-TV reports ( http://is.gd/7uKIEh) prosecutors used a cell phone video that appeared to show 24-year-old Rachelle Braaten's young son smoking from a bong. They do not believe the video uncovered in March was the first time he was exposed to drugs.

According to court documents, Braaten told police she felt peer pressure to let her son smoke pot.

Police found marijuana plants and some guns in the home and also arrested Braaten's fiance.
