(Scroll down for video) Police launched an investigation after a video appeared on Facebook, showing a father teaching his young son how to smoke marijuana, police in Illinois said.
The Chicago Police Department said that detectives are investigating the video that appears to show a child smoking marijuana.
In the video, a boy wearing a diaper is seen sitting on a chair and smoking what appears to be a joint.
The person recording the video, who is believed to be the father of the child, can be heard telling the child to smoke and inhale.
He then made smoking and inhaling sounds. The child is seen putting the joint in his mouth at least twice. The toddler can also be seen getting intoxicated as a result of the marijuana.
Concerned citizens notified the police about the video on Wednesday night.
The video has since gone viral on Facebook. Police urged anyone with information about the video to come forward. So far, no arrests have been made.
