The parents of a seven-month baby have been charged in the US after their child tested positive for methamphetamine.
Baby Tamara Manson is recovering in hospital and in the care of officials in the state of Arkansas.
Kevin Manson and Jennifer Edwards have been arrested and
of exposing an infant to the drug and endangering the welfare of a child.
Family relative Stacy Watkins said: "It don't surprise me, but it makes me sick to my stomach."
Saline County Deputies were raiding the couple's home Friday morning after an infant was taken to the hospital, where she tested positive for having meth in her system.

Accused: Kevin Manson is currently in jail following the claims by police
Shock: Jennifer Edwards is the mother of the child
"I'm happy the child is safe, and hopefully doing better but for any baby to away from their parent, I wouldn't want that," Watkins said." I wish they would get clean for her.
"We're very concerned about the well-being of that baby," Lt. Jeff Silk, Saline County Sheriff's Office said.
Authorities are officially charging the little girl's parents with Introducing and Controlled Substance to Another Person and Endangering the Welfare of a Child.
"I don't care who you are, a police man of 20 or 30 years, it doesn't make a difference," Lt. Silk said. "It still pulls at your heart strings when you see young innocent victims like this."
"Children don't need to be around it, " Watkins said. "Babies are innocent."
The Saline County family is now asking all of Arkansas to pray for little Tamara.
"It would be devastating," Watkins said. "It'd be devastating if she didn't' make it."
