Father accused of smoking pot with 8-year-old son

A man has been arrested for allegedly smoking marijuana with his 8-year-old son. Brian Benson of Midland Beaver County, a self-admitted heroin addict, told KDKA he was in his friend’s car with his son and his friend’s two toddlers while his friend smoked marijuana.

Midland Police say Benson’s 8-year-old told them his father smoked marijuana with him.

Benson told KDKA he was falling asleep while on heroin, which prompted his “adoptive mother” to call 911.  That’s when police talked to Benson’s 8-year-old son.

Benson is charged will endangering the welfare of a child and possession. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for October 3rd.
