  • If they don't I sure hope they start! That way they could save children from druggie parents from birth instead of after they have grown to children in an environment of drugs and most likely abuse.

  • When they take your urine when you go in for delivery, and blood, they are testing your body for drugs, among other things. At least that's what they do here in IN and I don't know why it'd be any different anywhere else. I think they should do it.

  • They do in GA. I went in with HBP when I was 17 and they thought I was drunk because I was pale and extremely dizzy. Boy, did they feel like shit after it came back negative.
