LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A man was arrested on drug charges after police say he was driving with two young children in the car while smoking marijuana.

Rayon Whitlock, 24, was pulled over by police for driving a vehicle with canceled registration. According to a police report, a one-year-old and 3-year-old were in the back seat of the car. Police say they smelled marijuana from the vehicle.

The report says a rear passenger handed the officer a blunt that was still hot from when the occupants had been smoking.

Police say Whitlock's actions could cause "extreme danger" to the children due to their inability to make a conscious decision not to inhale the marijuana. According to the arrest report, inhalation could affect the children's growth and development.
