An Arizona woman has been charged with child abuse after her daughter ate mac and cheese made with THC butter.

THC is the primary chemical in cannabis that gets users high.

Alaina Marie Limpert, 25, admitted to cooking mac and cheese with THC for her husband, but says was unaware that he gave some to their daughter.

However, the police report states that a witness said the couple laughed about the side effects the two-year-old experienced after eating the dish.

"They proceeded to place her into their backyard pool to use the cold water to 'shock' her," the police report continues.

"During that time, neither parent took the child to immediate emergency care."

It was two days before the Department of Child Safety was called and took custody of the three children living in the house.

Doctors confirm they found THC in the child's system.

Upon a police search, mushrooms, marijuana grow tents, and other cannabis-related paraphernalia were found at the house.

Cannabis in Arizona is legal for medical use but prohibited for recreational use.

Limpert is due to reappear in court in April.
