SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A Springfield Township mother is behind bars after prosecutors say she taught her 2-year-old daughter how to smoke pot.

Jessica Gamble, 21, is charged with one count of felony corrupting another with drugs.

The Hamilton County Prosecutor's Office says video of the incident was captured on Gamble's cell phone and provided to Hamilton County Jobs and Family Services. JFS removed the child from care of her mother.

"It is unbelievable to watch on video a mother teaching her 2-year-old child how to smoke a joint," said Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters.

Neighbors tell FOX19 they cannot believe what Gamble is accused of doing.

"This is out of the ordinary for this neighborhood," says longtime resident and neighbor Barbara Parker. "It made me feel like there was no supervision, that there was no caring."

Gamble is behind bars on a $10,000 bond. Her case will go to the grand jury on Sept. 20.
