Just a story I would like to share....This was in January in california, the bay area
My wife was in the hospital in labor and for some reason recieved a drug test. Maybe because she is on Medi-cal insurance or maybe because she was prescribed Vicodin during the pregnancy and they wanted to see if she was on anything else. Anyway her test came up positive for meth amphetamines. This was a shock because she is 23 blonde healthy as could be with no history of drug abuse, she only took vicodin that was prescribed. Anyway when the baby was born they tested her urine too and it was negative for everything and the bay was healthy and normal. They still had a social worker come in and question my family and her family and he was very accusing. The guy told me that sometimes people hide their drug abuse well and nobody knows about it, closet users he said. I really had to laugh because there is no way my wife had taken meth amphetamines. So he had to come to our house to see where we live because there was a chance that my wife wouldnt be able to take the baby home. He came over and said that this is not a typical drug house because our house was clean and we had a baby room all set up. Anyway we asked for another test but it was the weekend so we had to wait until monday. It was a weird weekend thinking ym wife was a closet meth user that nobody knew about. Finally monday came and the test came back negative. He left a message on my phone saying the test is now negative have a good day. My family and I were just in shock. I know he was just doing his job and probably has saved a lot of kids from unfit mothers but damn there has to be some kind of back up in case of a false positive. My parents and my sister and brother in law were harassed and questioned about our life styles and theirs too. the nurses and hospital staff looked at us funny. It was just a horrible experience to be accused of meth use while she was pregnant. in the end tho the re test came up negative and we have a beautiful healthy baby girl. Again we dont use meth and she would never use drugs while pregnant.
