Is smoking Marijuana safe during pregnancy?
Not by itself
While the state law states
"Parental Drug Use as Child Abuse
This material may be freely reproduced and distributed. However, when doing so, please credit Child Welfare Information
Gateway. Available online at
Ill. Comp. Stat. XXXXXXX Ch. 705, § 405/2-3(1)(c) (LexisNexis through 2012 Reg. Sess.)
Those who are neglected include any newborn infant whose blood, urine, or meconium contains any amount of a
controlled substance as defined in § 102(f) of the Illinois Controlled Substances Act, or a metabolite of a controlled
substance, with the exception of controlled substances or metabolites of such substances, the presence of which in the
newborn infant is the result of medical treatment administered to the mother or the newborn infant"
BUT it is not mandatory drug testing.
IF there are health concerns, if it is not a normal pregnancy, if there are other red flags for child issues then it gets to be a potential problem.
Let us turn this around
Do they have the resources to do anything to ALL the women who are pregnant and have marijuana in their system ?
You've delivered ?!?
No, they certainly wouldn't. Testing is immediately after birth or no, they didn't do it. You would know before the baby went home.
