BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Police say a 29-year-old Baton Rouge man accused of making his 8- and 10-year-old relatives smoke marijuana faces cruelty charges.

Baton Rouge police tell The Advocate (http://bit.ly/1U0csbQ) Jason Louis Taylor rolled marijuana blunts and provided them to the young boys on several occasions, instructing the children to smoke it.

The police report says the 8-year-old boy was taken to the hospital in February after being told to smoke weed. The child later tested positive for marijuana.

Police say both children said Taylor allegedly smoked marijuana in front of them on several occasions.

Taylor was arrested Wednesday on two counts of cruelty to juveniles and one count of illegal use of a controlled substance in the presence of a juvenile.

Online jail records do not list an attorney for Taylor.
