A mum, Mandy Wells, 32, has been arrested after allegedly giving cannabis and beer to eight young girls at her daughter’s slumber party. She was arrested after pictures of the girls smoking what appeared to be marijuana surfaced on Instagram. One of the girls reportedly told police that the mum-of-three offered them the cannabis after saying it helps her own daughter with depression.
According to Mirror UK, she allegedly gave each of the girls – aged between 12 and 14 – two cans of Coors Light and marijuana in a ‘Hello Kitty’ pipe. She reportedly admitted to the police that she allows her 14-year-old daughter to self-medicate with marijuana because her prescribed medication ‘does not work’.
She also reportedly told police that the girls were “getting high” at the party, but she “ kept things under control.”three children, a boy and two girls, were in the house at the time of the party.
Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler told WFAA officers had found drugs paraphernalia while searching the house, as well as dog faeces on the floor and beer cans in one of her children’s bedroom.
He said: “This place was a garbage dump. It was nasty, filthy.”
Wells’ children have been removed from her home and are now in the care of local children’s services.
At least two parents of the girls involved have told police they plan to press charges against Wells.
She was remanded in custody with $20,000 bail.
