Quoting Nymphadora:" What about women who are given medicinal marijuana for nausea or because they had a pre-existing condition ... [snip!] ... prescription. For Washington and Colorado mommas: Does CPS still get involved for THC positive newborns now that it is legal?"
Like I said, I think they get involved because it is an illegal substance. If it is prescribed, it wouldn't be illegal would it?
I wish they would. I had a "friend" who litterally drank a 6pack of beer in front of me in less than 2 hours while pregnant with her son. Sadly, he was her last child and that was not an isolated inncodent. She smoked worse that a refinery stack and always had a beer in her hand. Sooooo many times I wanted to do something about it. I never did. I regret it. But, I guess you don't really grab a nerve until you have your own children and I didn't want her thinking I was doing it because I was struggling to get pregnant. She was the mom that would give her kid a bottle of sugar water, lay him in the crib and have a party in her house and not think twice about checking on her children all night.
