Florida woman accused of giving her child meth, pot

"People "joked" about the child's ability to roll joints for (Ecker, )" WCSO wrote in its report.

On Thursday, authorities made the decision to arrest her and charge her.

She also was charged with lewd and lascivious battery and transmission of harmful material to a minor in connection with a separate case.

Ecker admitted to using the drugs but said she never forced her daughter to use drugs.

While being interviewed by detectives, Heinz admitted that she had a history of drug use, including heroin and opioid pills, having been at the Methadone Clinic in 2013, stopping sometime around previous year. Moreover, she admitted to consuming pot the night before her interrogation and smoking meth months before her arrest.

When authorities executed a search warrant on Ecker's home on January 19, they said they found several items "consistent with marijuana and methamphetamine use", including two glass methamphetamine pipes, each with residue inside; a plastic pill bottle converted into a handmade smoking device with burned residue; two marijuana grinders, one of which had marijuana inside; a digital scale; and a small plastic bag containing marijuana residue located within a basket containing children's toys.

During the search, detectives found meth residue inside two glass pipes.

Ecker was arrested in January for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

At the beginning of January, the deputies launched a child abuse investigation in Ecker's case after learning that the woman might force her 2-year-old toddler to consumed unsafe narcotics. However, the toxicology report ordered by the court revealed that the 2-year-old toddler tested positive for both meth and marijuana. The tests concluded it likely wasn't a one-time event, either.

Readings also indicated the child was exposed to the drugs a lot of times or at least on more than one occasion.

But she said did not admit to the meth use and requested them to find her a lawyer. She further denied giving her child any meth or marijuana. Additionally, Ecker also denied owning the pipes.

The same day, Ecker was arrested by authority of the arrest warrant and was booked into the Wakulla County Jail. According to her Facebook page, she works at a Walmart.
