This does bother me. I think you should be tested for everything and if your baby comes out positive for any hard drugs the mother should be charged with a crime

They only test for marijuana because it stays in the system for the longest and there aren't as many in-your-face red flags when baby is born exposed to that as other narcotics.

Well in the article they said some moms could be forced into parenting classes for a year blah blah blah...prob paid for by the tax payers...but what if you were on pills or something...I mean of all the drugs to test for...pot?

And? They tested us, we were positive, they let us leave the hospital as soon as they found out I had private insurance (no medicaid payment) and had no other cases against me with CPS. It's really not the end of the world.

Why would a hospital only test for pot? That makes no sense.

Well that's what I'm saying.  With all the prescription drug addiction problems, shouldn't they be testing for those as well.  I don't know how long they stay in your system but someone who is addicted to say Oxy's take them everyday ya know?

The hospital where I am tests moms in labor for everything if they came up positive even just once during their pregnancy.

Hey, it'd definitely take the edge off the laboring :)
