A Southern California couple has been arrested for allegedly having their toddler smoke a marijuana pipe.

San Bernardino County sheriff's Deputy Lisa Guerra says a tipster provided video showing 20-year-old Melanie Soliz and 24-year-old Blake Hightower allowing their 23-month-old son to smoke pot.

A sheriff's spokeswoman says the video is evidence and won't be released.

The Victorville Daily Press reports that Guerra went to the couple's Hesperia home. Soliz, who is seven months pregnant, was arrested and booked for investigation of cruelty to a child.

Hightower surrendered Saturday night and was also booked.

In August, a Florida mother was arrested after she allegedly took a picture of her baby "smoking" out of a bong and posted it to Facebook.
