Hey, you know how it’s been a little while since Jenelle Evans has really and truly gotten into some trouble?

Well, forget that.

After a year or two of keeping her nose relatively clean — no new arrests, no on-camera drug use, no gettin’ seen wif Kieffer — she’s now reclaiming her trainwreck status in the most tragic way.

As Jenelle herself would say, "Oh my GOD, dude!"

According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, Nathan Griffith’s mother, Doris Davidson, filed for emergency custody of Kaiser last week.


Because neither Jenelle nor Nathan are "fit and proper persons to provide for the care custody and control of the minor child."

And while that isn’t exactly new information, this next little tidbit Doris provided is.

In the papers, Doris claimed that when Jenelle gave birth to darling little Ensley back in January, "the newborn tested positive for marijuana."

Not only that, but "DSS became involved due to Ensley testing positive for marijuana and opened an investigation."

After that, both Jenelle and Ensley’s father, David Eason, failed drug tests with marijuana in their systems.

The papers go on to state that Doris "has a reasonable belief that plaintiff [Jenelle] regularly abuses illegal substances based on the following: Plaintiff has an extensive history of drug use and has been to treatment."

"Plaintiff has admitted to using marijuana. Upon information and belief, Plaintiff failed a drug test given by New Hanover county DDS in early 2017."

And because of those reasons, Doris requested the court do another, more current drug test on Jenelle.

But, in the meantime, good ol’ Doris said that she is the "fit and proper persons to have the care, custody and control of the minor child and is willing and able to provide for the child’s physical, mental, emotional, and other needs."

Well, thank goodness someone is.

Additionally, Doris is "worried about the safety of the minor child while in the care" of Jenelle.

So, to summarize, Jenelle allegedly smoked marijuana while pregnant with Ensley, enough for the poor baby to test positive for the drug, and now Nathan’s mom is trying to save the one kid out of Jenelle’s gaggle that she has biological ties to.

What a mess.

We all know that Jenelle has always loved her some weed, and in normal circumstances, we’d much rather her be smoking that then, say, doing heroin.

But if she really did get high while pregnant, that’s just awful.

Studies have shown that marijuana during pregnancy can affect the child’s neurological functions, and it can even increase the chance for miscarriages and stillborns.

While Ensley seems fine now, Jenelle’s alleged choices could affect her significantly in the future.

As for Jenelle’s other children, a few interesting things could happen.

One, Doris could manage to get the custody of Kaiser that she’s asking for, which would honestly probably be for the best at this point.

Two, if Jenelle’s ordered to take another drug test and fails, she could be found in violation of her current custody agreement with her mother, Barbara, over Jace.

And of course we still don’t know what DSS is doing about Ensley’s positive drug test, if anything.

Dang, Jenelle …
