Chicago Police Investigating Video That May Show Child Smoking Pot

Chicago police are investigating a disturbing video that appears to depict a young child smoking marijuana. Off camera, a person can be heard telling the child to "inhale it."

Police detectives were given the video by a concerned viewer and community activist who received it from an anonymous tipster, according to CBS.

If the police find that someone did give the boy marijuana, that person could be charged with child endangerment, and the state Department of Children and Family Service might be contacted to remove the child from his home.

Sources told CBS an IP address connected with the video has been traced to suburban Bellwood, but its origin is as of now unconfirmed by police.
