The same day, Ecker was arrested by authority of the arrest warrant and was booked into the Wakulla County Jail.

Officers say they began a child abuse investigation in January after 20-year-old Kaitlyn Ecker was accused of involving the child in meth and marijuana use in her home. A search in January turned up pipes that tested positive for marijuana and meth residue, along with other drug paraphernalia and a bag of marijuana found among children's toys.

Ecker told police she shared a bedroom with her child and admitted she had smoked marijuana and methamphetamine, but said she never did drugs in the presence of her child and her child had never been exposed to drugs.

The child tested positive for high levels of the drugs, which indicated to the medical examiners it was not a one-time incident, Florida-based daily Tallahassee Democrat reported.

Ecker was placed under arrest for possession of marijuana (less than 20 grams) and possession of drug paraphernalia on that date.

Later that month, officers say they obtain warrants to take blood and hair samples from Ecker and the child.

It is believed that Ecker allowed her son to smoke meth out of a pipe.

Readings also indicated the child was exposed to the drugs a lot of times or at least on more than one occasion. Additionally, Ecker denied owning the pipes. Yelin said every room tested positive for meth contamination, including the infant room, and estimated cleanup costs at $80,000.

On Thursday, authorities made the decision to arrest her and charge her.

The woman was identified as 25-year-old Alaina Marie Limpert from Tempe, Arizona, who allegedly laced the dish with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, a chemical found in marijuana) butter.

Heinz told police she had refitted the cabinet as a place to "get away" during breaks but asked for an attorney when questioned about drugs, reported KULR. Miller said that the child is in the care of other relatives at this time. Earlier in the week, a Texas mother was charged with child abuse after her baby tested positive for amphetamines, methamphetamine, cocaine, and marijuana, News Channel 6 Now reported.

Police officials said Limpert "admitted to making the mac and cheese with THC for her husband, but did not know her daughter ingested it".
