Buttering Up the Kids

Stevie C. Hickey, 22, a babysitter in Upper Burrell, Pa., allegedly fed marijuana to her 12-year-old charge. Hickey allegedly told the girl she had put “parsley butter” on the toast she had given her, but “From my training and experience,” the investigating officer said, “I could smell it was marijuana mixed in butter.” The girl’s mother called police after finding the spread in the woman’s freezer, packed in a plastic tub labeled “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter”. Hickey allegedly told police she learned how to make the mixture on the Internet, and “forgot” it was in her freezer. Hickey was cited and released on her own recognizance. (RC/Valley News Dispatch) ...I can’t believe it’s not a felony.
