An Orange County woman learned the risks of being a stoner mommy the hard way.Last week, the Ladera Ranch mother put in a panicked (and perhaps rightfully paranoid) call to the local sheriff's department, requesting the help of paramedics.

It turns out her 16-month-old baby had mistaken a loaded bong for a baby bottle and downed the contents The OC Weekly Reports.

Mom tossed the bong in the trash, waited a little while and called the deputies back. It turned out the kid was alright.

We just hope this isn't a gateway to licking mom's shiny coke mirrors.
