Used to be, a parent who wanted to motivate a lazy, underachieving child to do better would offer a few bucks for a job well done.
But, 34 year old Joey Mudd of Largo took the Pavlovian idea of classical conditioning to a whole new level.
She allegedly gave her 13 and 14 year old daughters marijuana to smoke to get them to do chores and get good grades in school.
At times, Mudd says she even toked a little reefer with the kids, giving new meaning to the words “quality time.”
Mudd could end up doing a little “time” by herself now. She is charged with child abuse.
The kids are with their more conventional relatives.
