Elkins man accused of forcing his kids to smoke pot

ELKINS, W.Va. -- An Elkins man faces charges of forcing his young children to smoke marijuana.

Timothy Wayne Hedrick, 28, is charged with child neglect creating risk of injury. He's being held at the Tygart Valley Regional Jail on $25,000 bail.

The Inter-Mountain reported that Hedrick's 6-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter told a state Child Protective Services worker that their father forced them to smoke marijuana. The worker notified the Randolph County Sheriff's Department.

Police found a homemade bong and other drug paraphernalia during a search of Hedrick's apartment.

The children are in state custody.
