Boy Brings Mom's Meth & Crack Pipe to Show-and-Tell

What did you bring to school for show-and-tell when you were a kid? A favorite toy? Maybe your pet turtle? Well, we’re in the 21st century now, so apparently the thing to bring is your mom’s crack pipe and meth stash.

The New York Daily News reports that according to Kansas City TV station KCTV, that’s just what a kindergarten student brought to school earlier this month. Students in the class at Sweet Springs Elementary School were supposed to bring pictures of their families for show-and-tell. Apparently the drugs best illustrated this little boy’s family.

Stunned school officials naturally called police, who then executed a search warrant on the boy’s home. His mother Michelle Marie Cheatham was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance and child endangerment.

The boy is now being cared for by relatives.
