WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Two women in North Carolina were arrested on child abuse charges after a Facebook video showed multiple young children smoking what appeared to be an illegal substance.

Michaela Pearson and Candice Little are each charged with felony child abuse and three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to the Winston-Salem Police Department.

The children were 2 and 3 years old and 18 months old, according to arrest warrants.

Officials believe Pearson and Little caused and encouraged the children to smoke marijuana.

The children were taken to a hospital where they are being treated. Pearson and Little are being held on $150,000 secured bonds.
