every baby and every mother is drug tested at the time of the babies birth !! i know for a fact cause i have a friend dealing with it all right now her baby had traces of weed in her system and so did the mother and she is going through court and dealing with social services !! any mother that does any drug while she is pregnant needs to be dealt with and don't say weed don't hurt cause it does!!
What a person does after age 18 is his/her business for the most part. A fetus has no choice. Mothers that test positive for substances harmful to newborns should be prosecuted just as if they had given the baby the substance after birth.
just do it

I'm curious - and before all of you start trash talking do some research so you don't make yourself look stupid - do they drug test mother and baby at the hospital? my friend is having a baby she was going to quit at the beginning of her 3rd trimester but she keeps throwing up when she tries and no other nausea medication is working. So if she goes into labor early will they drug test her and the baby? she doesn't do anything else she doesn't smoke cig or anything she just is really really sick and pregnant and weed is all that's helped
They will do it if you are in the system at Child Protective Services or are receiving welfare.

I had my baby in January. I do not do any drug at all not smoke cigarettes. I got drug tested a few times and passed. Then when I went in labor and had her they did a drug screen for me and they baby. I don't think people should do anything at all. Especially when your carrying a baby!

I know someone's baby that tested positive for meth at birth. The baby was deformed. Bless her heart! MCH at Greenville reported it to no one. Only after she was transferred to Kosairs was anything done. They didn't do anything to the mother other than take the baby away from her!!

That's because idiots say drug addiction is a "disease"...well it isn't, I was a drug addict for years, I quit cause I get tested at my job...I have not an urge to do any type of drug and haven't for years...so it isn't a "disease"...it's a f'ing choice

Yes every mother and baby is tested for drugs. Me and my son were and of course it came back clean since i don't do drugs. They show you the drug test report.

This needs to happen. This would help out everyone. It's not the babies fault that their so called mother done drugs while pregnant. I hate to hear that these babies have to suffer for what their parents have done. Babies don't choose who their parents are. I'm sad because GOD gives these babies to people who DONT deserve them. GODS MIRACLES (the babies) DESERVE MORE THAN TO BE TREATED LIKE A BURDEN.

I didn't read every comment, just speaking from experience. With both of my children I had in madisonville by two different doctors it's in the paperwork that you sign that they will drug test every visit. Even though I wasn't doing any drugs with my first pregnancy I got tested every visit. With my second pregnancy(different doctor) I get test about every three visits then she eventually just stopped testing me because I was always clean. So even though most drug test I think when and the amount varies from doc to doc :) if you got copies if the paper work just review it and see your own doctors rules.

Also I wasn't tested and neither was either one of my children at the time if birth. From what I know doctors think if mom is clean baby is clean unless unknowingly your fetus is throwing mad raging drug parties in your tummy every night.

But then they wonder why their child is slow or has something wrong with it.

I just had a baby and they asked to drug test me the day afterward so I did. I quit smoking marijuana and cigs while pregnant and you should just ask your doctor for Zofran or something. getting my child taken away is a lot worse than dealing with morning sickness for a little while. you'll be okay without marijuana.
