New York, Dec 10 (IANS) Daycare staff in the US state of Connecticut were stunned as they found a marijuana cigarette in a one-and-a- half-year old child’s lunchbox.

The Clinton Child Care Centre employees in Connecticut called police after finding the joint while unpacking the container for teh child during lunchtime, the Daily Mail reported.

The toddler’s father, John Sulzbach, 33, had allegedly dropped the drugs inside while preparing his son’s lunch at their Killingworth home.

Childcare workers called police last Thursday shortly after midday. The child’s parents agreed to a search of their property where less than one ounce of the drug and smoking paraphernalia was discovered in the basement.

Sulzbach was charged with possession of a controlled substance and impairing the morals of a child, according to NBC Connecticut.

In a separate incident in September, a kindergarten pupil brought his mother’s crack pipe and drugs to school for show and tell.

Mother Michelle Marie Cheatham, 32, was charged with possession of a controlled substance and one count of first-degree child endangerment after the incident at Sweet Springs Elementary School in Missouri.
