Oregon Baby found in Marijuana Extract Lab

A 24-year-old father was keeping his baby inside his house while making homemade marijuana extract. Derick Scott had his two-year-old child with him while using harsh chemicals in his home, according to the Statesman Journal. Authorities responded to a call to check on the child, then called the fire department, a bomb squad and the District Attorney once they found the chemicals and the child. The father was taken into the Marion County jail on misdemeanor charges and endangering a minor. Though marijuana is legal now in the state of Oregon, the production or possession of marijuana extract is illegal. The child is now in protective custody and was examined at a local hospital.
