The baby was placed with Wake County Child Protective Services.

In the videos, an adult’s hand can be seen holding a brown cigar or cigarette to the baby’s mouth. The baby is seen blowing out smoke in both videos.

Raleigh police warrants said Lofton was accused of “causing, encouraging and aiding a one-year-old child to smoke a marijuana blunt” on December 1, 2017.
