In the disturbing video, a girl roughly 2 years old sits huddled on the floor in the back seat of a minivan. Her eyes roll back in her head as the young women in the car tease, laugh and poke at her. (ABC)
Texas authorities have interviewed the occupants of a minivan who appear in an online video that shows a toddler who might have been given ecstasy, as authorities try to determine whether the child actually ingested the powerful street drug.
"They don't have enough information to say with any certainty whether or not she was exposed to any drugs," Lt. John Martin, a spokesman for the Harris County Sheriff's Office, told ABC News.
"Their story is basically that they told the little girl to act that way and they were basically filming her doing what they said," Martin said.
Investigators, under the leadership of the FBI's Houston field office, have also interacted with the toddler, Martin said.
In the disturbing video, a girl roughly 2 years old sits huddled on the floor in the back seat of a minivan, her eyes rolling back in her head as the young women in the car tease, laugh and poke at her. At times, she looks unresponsive to a teen playing with her face and sticking iPod speakers in her ears.
At least four females, who appear to be in their teens or early 20s, are captured on tape laughing at the little girl as she sits stone-faced throughout most of the 2˝ minute clip. Another child, also not wearing a seat belt, can be seen in the back seat of the vehicle.
"She's taking that hit like a soldier," a female voice says. "She's rolling, girl, she's rolling."
"Rolling" is a term commonly used to describe the effects of Ecstasy, a potentially lethal street drug that is often associated with the club scene.
MDMA, the active ingredient in ecstasy, acts as both a stimulant and a psychedelic, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
In total, there were nine people in the minivan, including three adults, the toddler, an infant and four teenage girls under 17, Martin said. One of the adults, he said, was the 21-year-old mother of the toddler featured in the video.
The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services is involved and will now work to ensure the child's proper care. Authorities, meanwhile, will continue to probe any illegal activity -- including the possibility that the toddler was drugged.
The girls eyes looked pretty damn big and she seemed to be grinding her teeth a little, so it does look real. If it is, then that's sick.
Budgie has a two year old, and if anybody did anything like that to them, Budgie would happily go down for murder.
People like that deserve everything they get. What goes around, comes around.
^^^ Just go here http://www.parentsbehavingbadly.com/ and scroll down until you see the video. The ABC news video is bullshit. You might know they would add commercials to the clips. On the ABC site the video is to the right of the still shot.
P.s. On a side note: On the parents behaving badly website there are three drug related stories on the front page alone. Seems to be an active trend.
Description: An online video that allegedly shows teens teasing a toddler for using the drug Ecstasy while sitting on the floorboard of a moving vehicle is being investigated by local authorities hoping to find out who is responsible.
In the video, which originally appeared on YouTube before it was removed, a second child, an infant, also is seen being handed from one person to another in the back seat of the car.
Various clues in the video — a map and a Houston radio station broadcast — have gotten the sheriffs' departments in Harris and Jackson counties involved in the investigation. FBI spokeswoman Shauna Dunlap said her agency also is looking into the matter.
I give it 3 starts as it should be known that people like this exists. I hope the police don\'t catch \'em. They\'d turn it into \"XTC - The Drug Of Abusers!\" or some such shit. I hope someone else catches them.

That is a massive dose for a 2 year old: The average weight is around 10 kg, the purity of pills is around the 80 mg. So she has a 8mg/kg ingested. SWIM thinks that doesn't any good for her cognitive development. Luckily mdma is a quite forgiving substance. SWIM sometimes has difficulties to determine what people are thinking, if they are capable of it anyway.
hopefully if they really did give it to the kid they at least cut the dose down to a size the kid could manage more safely
SWIM isn't sure about that. She didn't seem to response much on her enviroment in the video. SWIM has seen that before with someone who took around the 10 mdma tablets. Of course this does not have to be the equivalent dosage. SWIM doesn't know how children of 2 reacts on mdma, he isn't going to research it either.
For some reason, this kind of stuff angers me more than when for example an adult is murdered for fun or something. People should leave children alone.
I hope the police don't catch 'em. ... I hope someone else catches them.
+1. I'd love to run into them at the Wal-Mart after dark...
Stuff like this really shows that some people just have no chance in life. What chance does that kid have to grow up to be a decent, halfway actualized human being? Being fed drugs at an early age aside, think about the brainiacal environment she's growing up in. It's all about chewing gum, TV, Christian radio and the bliss of the truly ignorant. Damn, makes one sad.
Obligatory flip comment here: How come 2-year-olds can get decent MDMA and SWIM can't?...
Video looks real to me but who knows I've seen this eye thing many times with people doing too many pills but it's never so static, it's more of a "I can't control my eyes dude". She seems to clench the jaw a bit too. I agree that it's sad either way.
As a said in the "fucking date rape" post there are jerks everywhere and they're ruinning the party for the rest of us. Kill the jerks!!
It's a fake. The FBI looked to the public for help in tracking the people in the video down, and doctors tested her and no ecstasy traces were found. It turns out she was making a joke ("rolling" her eyes back and "rolling" on ecstasy").
