In brief: Cocaine

Cocaine is a potent vasoconstrictive agent that can cause your placenta to lose its attachment to your uterus, depriving your baby of nutrients.
Cocaine metabolites are detectable in your body for around 30 hours, but stay in your baby much longer. Cocaine & metabolites are also stored in placenta & myometrium -- becoming continuous drug delivery to your baby. http://tinyurl.com/kxgwfsp.
