Four-Year-Old Eats Cocaine, Thinking It Was Icing

Written by Eliza Player on Sunday, 22 April 2012. Posted in Breaking News, Cocaine


A four-year-old boy tested positive for cocaine, after eating something off his mother's bedroom floor that he thought was icing. According to Complex Pop Culture, police discovered the child when they responded to a complaint of prostitution. After gaining entry to the room, police discovered two men and the child trying to eat something off the floor. When the cops stopped him to see what it was, they realized it was cocaine. There was also white icing on the floor.

Police took the child to the hospital, where he tested positive for cocaine. The two men were also arrested, and one admitted they had rented the room for the boy's mother so she could use it for prostitution. The child's mother could face charges of child endangerment.

I have been writing as long as I can remember, even carrying tattered notebooks with me through the streets and strip clubs of New Orleans, in the midst of my heroin addiction. I lived a life saturated in heroin until Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, leaving me to fend for myself, eventually facing my demons and coming face to face with my addiction. I have been clean for five years, and since then I have become a mother, graduated college, and started a writing career. I have a B.A. in Mass Media Communication, with a minor in Journalism. I have also written one published book, Through Both Hell and High Water: A Memoir of Addiction and Hurricane Katrina, which tells the story of those dark days I spent in New Orleans after the storm, battling with addiction amidst a natural disaster. I am the blogger and news curator for RecoveryNowTV, and I love sharing the stories of the world, as well as my own personal journey, with my readers. I hope that my words can touch others out there, struggling with addiction.
