GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - A Grand Forks toddler, whose mother was pulled over Thursday, allegedly told a Grand Forks County sheriff's deputy that "Mommy smokes weed all the time," according to a court affidavit.

20-year-old Kaitlyn Campbell was driving with 19-year-old Jessica Gordon of Park River and Campbell's 1-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter on Thursday.

The deputy pulled the car over on S. Washington St. and soon learned that Gordon had two outstanding warrants and moved to arrest her.

In doing so, he reported that he could smell a "strong odor of marijuana" coming from the car.

Searching the car, the deputy and his colleagues found marijuana, several marijuana pipes and a dugout with residue, according to court documents.

One of the pipes and the dugout was found at the feet of the 1-year-old.

Referring to a pipe, the 4-year-old allegedly told deputies, "That's Mommy's."

She also allegedly said that Campbell used marijuana all the time.

Both women were charged with endangerment of a child, a Class C felony, and misdemeanor counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Gordon is also facing a misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana.
