How can they tell through the baby if you smoked pot while pregnant?

first of all I DON'T SMOKE! AND I'M NOT PREGNANT! I'm asking cuz the other question about a baby being born clean (which i honestly think was a very sad question) got me wondering how anyone can tell? do they drug test the newborn?

  • Because when you do drugs, they go right through the placenta and into the baby...

  • im guessing through a pee test..but idk? Unless you have a history of drug abuse or have told the dr about your drugs they don't test you. and even if it is just pot i think where i live (az) they don't do anything about it..any other drug you would have cps on your butt! idk why?

  • Why would you be concerned if you haven't done anything?

  • in california and about 30 other states that i know of pot wont put any radar on the cps alert. most drug tests are specific, they test each drug separately, thc isnt even usually one of them unless the baby is having specific problems then they have to rule out certain things. they test the baby not through the actual baby itself but through the afterbirth (the placenta).

  • Cainesmama, they most certainly do test the baby if they have reason.
