A woman has been convicted of giving cannabis to her 3-month old baby through her breast milk,
in what is believed to be the first case of its kind in New Zealand.
The 29-year-old Wanganui woman was charged with administering a class C controlled drug,
namely cannabis, to a person under the age of 18.
She pleaded guilty and was sentenced in Wanganui District Court last week to six months’ supervision.
