She acknowledged prior use of methamphetamine but states she was “tired of the stuff and only smokes cigarettes. The child had a medical issue which delayed his discharge from the hospital, when he was ready for discharge the mother was in CCDC on charges of possession of a stolen vehicle. Natural father was also located at CCDC on charges involving possession of a firearm.
