STAMFORD, Conn. -- A Stamford mother who police say was smoking marijuana while watching her infant son play has been charged with child endangerment, according to a report from the Stamford Advocate.

The woman, Destiny Bell, 22, became so paranoid and bummed out after getting high that she ended up calling police to get help, reported the Advocate. Bell was arrested after she was taken to the Stamford Hospital for treatment and a nurse reported that she had smoked pot in the morning and became ill, said the Stamford Advocate. 

Bell, who recovered at the hospital, told police she also had a 5-year-old daughter who was at school. The Department of Children and Families was notified, but the infant was left in her care. Bell was released on a $500 court appearance bond, added the Stamford Advocate.
