Should all new mothers be screened for drugs?

When admitted to the hospital, should all mothers be screened for drugs to prevent a baby possibly going home with parents who will stick him in a freezer or leave him in a car while they shop for iPod accessories??

Seriously...I would be all up for this.

only if there is resaonable suspicion, i think they do enough testing as it is and they should not target all women who go in just bc they are pregnant, thats not right.

Jobs require drug screenings most of the time. Is that taking away your freedom? You have the freedom to choose. Be an idiot, or don't do drugs.

I thought they did...10 years ago when I had my middle child, there was a women next to me that wasn't allowed to bring her baby into her room nor take the baby home upon being discharged. There was security outside her door. They found marijuana in her system.
