Violet, La. - A St. Bernard Parish mother was booked with felony cruelty to a juvenile Monday after her 14-month-old son tested positive for marijuana.

The mother, Jaranique Goins, 21, admitted the boy may have eaten remains of pot cigarettes she threw in the back yard after smoking, according to St. Bernard Parish Sheriff James Pohlmann.

Goins and her mother brought the boy to St. Bernard Parish Hospital in Chalmette at about 2 a.m. Friday after he appeared unresponsive in his bed. The boy was then transported to Children's Hospital for further observation before being released.

Goins, who was living in Violet with her mother, surrendered to sheriff's deputies Monday night after learning that a district court judge had issued a warrant for her arrest. She  was released Tuesday on $10,000 bond.

The state office that handles child protection services has been notified.
