August 20, 2018
I'm 35 weeks today and stopped smoking today but i am worried the baby is gonna test positive for marijuana i live in New York State and only turned to marijuana to help with nausea eating and to relieve some of the pain i get from sciatica and round ligament tearing that happens multiple times daily will my baby be taken from me?
Be very careful. Doctors, hospitals, social workers, etc. are 'mandatory reporters' of suspected child neglect or abuse, and marijuana use may trigger an investigation by child services.
