Toddler Marijuana Leggings Spark Controversy

Amazon sells a host of different products, but you’d never expect its clothing section to include a set of toddler leggings covered in marijuana leaves.

While the site describes the pattern as “digital printed leaves,” one concerned grandmother knew better and complained to the company.

“I think that’s just very inappropriate for a three-year-old,” she said. “It’s not something they should be advertising.”

Unfortunately, the anonymous grandparent has not yet received a response from the company.

The marijuana leggings, which are aimed at girls aged three to eight, have also sparked controversy among other parents and anti-drug advocates.

“Why would you have that? You’re advertising that you’re showing acceptability to them,” said Diane Ramseyer, the executive director of Drug-Free Charlotte County.

On Twitter, the controversial leggings sparked debate among users as well. While many agreed that the “pot pants” were inappropriate, others reminded parents that the pants were just clothes and that they could choose not to buy them for their kids.
