CHICAGO -- Chicago police are investigating a video that seems to show a toddler smoking marijuana.

An adult, who is not seen on camera, tells the toddler what to do.

In the video, the child puts the joint to his mouth at least twice before the adult says, "Let me hit that, OK?"

WGN reported that community activist Andrew Holmes notified police about the video after a woman walked up to him and told him to watch it on social media.

“This is sickening,” Holmes told NBC Chicago. “This child needs help ASAP if he hasn’t had help already. It’s disturbing to hear the adult that was in the background to let them hit it and they’re telling the child to inhale.”

Police are now trying to track down the man heard coaching the child in the video.

"If anyone could recognize that child or know who that child is, don't be afraid to call the Chicago Police Department," Holmes told NBC Chicago.
