Did you get drug tested in Kansas?

I've already posted this question so i don't want to re-explain everything but basically, my friend smoked marijuana. What are the laws in kansas concerning this? when she has the baby will they drug test her and if marijuana shows up what will they do?

  • well they dont drug test unless someone tells them and they are concerned. they only do drug test on babies if they suspect drug use. but they dont do it on all the babies. and if the baby has drugs in its system they will take the baby within 24 hours.

  • The anon poster above is correct. If it shows up, they will take the baby within 24 hours, and rightfully so. SO irresponsible to use drugs, ANY drugs while you're pregnant... I think the mandatory drug testing is a great idea, I wish all states would do that...

  • I mean will they drug test the mother and if so what will happen?

  • If it's in the mother, it's in the baby. So if there's any sign of any drugs, they may test one or both. There's no way for the drugs to only be in the mother. So I'm sure if they test her, and it's positive, they will test the baby and then take it away, which they should with anyone using drugs while pregnant, SO STUPID, SELFISH, AND IRRESPONSIBLE!!!

  • Yep and to eloborate a little, if drug test is positive they take the baby and mom will be required to clean up or not have her baby. She will have to submit to random drug testing until they court feels she will stay clean. If she fails her child goes to CPS.

  • If your friend only smoked pot once, it will be out of her system in a few days, and with just once, the baby won't test positive anyway........

  • So whatever happened with the mom and baby? Did they automatically drug test either one?
