  • That's sad that the world has come to this.........Not that they smoke weed but that a mother would smoke while pregnant...........If they tests positive is something done? I would sure hope so!!!

  • I am pretty sure all hospitals do a little drug screen but I don't know if it includes weed. I live in GA and i knew someone who smoked weed while they were pregnant and no one ever mentioned it ....... but i know DFCS will take you to court if a baby is pos for anything else.

  • Testing babies for drugs? Really? They definitely don't do that here...that's crazy. Don't smoke weed while you're pregnant...
