Policed say a woman barricaded herself and three children inside their home after smoking K2.

Marcella Gaines, 32, is charged with three counts of endangerment to a child.

Police say one of Gaines' children told them she was "Acting crazy and [was] threatening to harm herself."

When officers arrived they say they heard screaming, and Gaines said she was "Ready to do something."

Officers say they had to climb through a window to get into the apartment because Gaines had barricaded the front and back doors with furniture.

Gaines later told police she was a recovering Meth user, and that she had just smoked K2, the synthetic marijuana.

Police took Gaines into custody, and the children were put in custody of CPS.

Her bond is set at $30,000.
