Parents in an impoverished western Sydney suburb are plying children as young as six with cannabis to "keep them quiet", a leading children's charity has revealed.
Counsellors at the Mount Druitt branch of the renowned Ted Noffs Foundation say the disturbing practice is becoming a trend.
"We are seeing six-year-olds being given bongs by their families to keep them quiet, stop them crying, or put them to sleep," clinical psychologist Michael Kirton said.
Everyone's a comedian when six year olds are allegedly punching cones in Mt Druitt.
"seriously, no way a six year old could smoke a bong. They'd be parachuting it and burning holes in the carpet."
