(Newser) – Forget that baby who smokes cigarettes—this one smokes a bong, at least if an ill-advised Facebook photo is to be believed. Florida’s child protection agency is investigating the family of the 11-month-old shown in the picture, WJXT reports. A spokesperson says they are “alarmed that any parent would take pictures of their child next to what is obviously drug paraphernalia.”

The baby isn’t actually smoking, his spelling-challenged 19-year-old mother says. On Facebook, she writes, “If u look at the picture u can see that there is no bowl in the TABACCO pipe. And i took a pic to show one (expletive) person and it was a mistake. I would never ever ever let him get high.”
