I am 36 weeks pregnant and I smoked last week will my baby be born with Marjuana in her system?

Define "in": If for any reason you end up on the hospitals radar as a possible drug user, the kids pee and poo will be sent fro drug tests.

Different practitioners can measure a different station in the same woman at the same time as well - its more of a gestalt than a reliable objective measure, despite its objective definition. ...Read more
