Video shows Gridley couple reportedly smoking pot in front of kids

From the Associated Press:

A Gridley couple has been arrested after being caught on tape smoking marijuana in front of their two children.

Luke Abraham Duran, 23, and Angie Lynn Gerst, 25, face charges of marijuana possession and child endangerment.

Police in Butte County say their two sons, ages 7 and 1, tested positive for marijuana after their parents were arrested Jan. 30. The children have been placed in protective custody.

Police say a visitor caught Duran and Gerst on camera, taking turns smoking from a glass marijuana pipe. The older boy was reportedly seen standing with the couple, while the younger child was in his mother's arms.

Gerst and Duran were booked at the county jail and released.
