Make an anonymous call to child protective services. Whether the marijuana affects the child or not it's still illegal and does slow down the cognition of grown adults so only god knows how it reacts in an infant.

This should be turned into Child Protective Services (Social Services). The THC in marijuana can cause brain tumors, cancer, and can cause a mental retardation in children that are exposed for long periods of time. This is NOT okay what so ever. You can call them and tell them the situation. It can be completely anonymous.
This can also cause birth defects is she is currently pregnant and smoking marijuana. This has got to stop. It is a harmful illegal drug.
Please do what's right for the child.

Some children do not speak until they are three, although most make attempts at about 12 months. So late talking is not a symptom.

Well, sometimes it can go unnoticed regardless of how obvious it may be. I am not sure where you or her are located, but where I live in North Carolina it is very illegal and you can lose your children for it.
Regardless rather she does it or not, she would have enough sense to leave with her children if the man is not understanding the consequences. She should have the best intentions for her children regardless.

cheshchesh lives in England its on her profile, they are more tolerant about pot than here, if the child is not being cared for you can still call and report it to the authorities, they will send a social worker to check on the child ..
