From today's opinion:
"The Del Norte County Department of Health and Human Services (Department)
received a referral from law enforcement after officers searched Mother’s residence and
found mushrooms, meth pipes, marijuana paraphernalia, concentrated cannabis, brass
knuckles and butterfly knives."
Awesome. Sounds like a wonderful place. Perfect location for a five- and eleven-year old child.
"It also appeared the occupants were hoarders, as there
were large piles of items. Some of the piles were over seven feet tall, presenting a hazard
to the children."
Yikes. And I thought it couldn't get any worse.
"Two days later, Mother tested
positive for methamphetamine, benzodiazepines, and marijuana."
"Mother continued to deny she had a substance abuse problem stating she 'only uses meth
to do yard work.'"
Oh. Okay. No problem then.
