In brief: Yes

Babies and children who passively smoke cigarettes or marijuana are not only set up for lifelong lung disease, the absorbed toxins also cause developmental and behavioral problems.
Parents who are intoxicated, stoned or high should never be sole caretakers of infants or children because of the high risk of accidents. Legally, it's considered child abuse/neglect to do so.
