When 34-year-old Ann Lampe of Springfield tried to justify to cops why she gave her own 13-year-old daughter meth to smoke on several occasions, here's what she said, as reported
in the News-Leader
Lampe allegedly told police she knew it was wrong to provide meth to her daughter but she did it, according to the documents, because the youngster would "throw a fit" if she didn't get what she wanted.
Right, so that might be....wait....Yes, it's the most breathtakingly bad parenting strategy we've ever heard of.
Not to mention illegal: Lampe was charged on Friday with two felony counts of endangering the welfare of a child, according to online court records.
Lampe allegedly gave her daughter meth on several occasions. They smoked it. They snorted it. They even "hot railed
" it, meaning they heated up one end of a glass pipe then used it to suck up meth, which vaporizes and turns into smoke on the way through.
Must be a different kind of high! You know, doing this with your mom
The alleged drug use happened between May and August.
The bond conditions imposed on Lampe say she musn't possess weapons or drugs and musn't have contact with any minors.
Probably a wise idea.
We'll just tell you the most gobsmacking detail right away.
