Decatur police are accusing a woman of smoking marijuana during her pregnancy.
Police said Valerie Lynnae Wallace, 24, of 2232 Harrison St. S.E., gave birth to a girl at Parkway Medical Center on Sept. 13. Police said the baby tested positive for THC, a chemical found in marijuana.
Police said an investigation with the Morgan County Department of Human Resources determined Wallace smoked marijuana while fully aware that she was pregnant.
Wallace was arrested Friday on charges of chemical endangerment of a child. She remained in jail Friday afternoon in lieu of $2,500 bail.
Police said it is unknown whether the drug use will have long term effects on the child.
