A mom helped a 14-year-old boy smoke meth, including holding the foil with the drugs while the teen inhaled, police said.
This month, the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office arrested Cheryl Ann Asiq, 38, in connection to the incident, according to WFLA.
Police said Asiq gave the teen drugs on three occasions.
Asiq would hold the foil with the meth, heated it and then let the boy use a straw to inhale the vapors, according to WFLA.
Another family member called 911 and said she spoke to the teen by phone and realized he was hallucinating from the drugs, according to the report. Asiq also spoke to the family member and she said that she only gave the boy a Xanax pill.
First responders came to the home and took the boy to the hospital, WFLA reported.
One emergency responder told police that Asiq asked if she was going to jail. She also called the victim while he was being treated and told him to lie about where he got the drugs, according to the news station.
Asiq initially told police the teen got the drugs while she was in the shower but then admitted to giving him the drug, thinking it would help him relax.
Police charged Asiq with three counts of aggravated child abuse and three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
