Baby Soap Residue Causes False Positives In Marijuana Tests

Quote:
A shocking number of babies are testing positive for marijuana use.
Baby wash, baby shampoo, bedtime bath soap -- all seemingly innocent products used in nurseries every day. But scientists found them to be the culprit behind a spike in false positive marijuana results in baby's urine, according to the journal clinical biochemistry.
The study found it had to do with how the baby's urine is captured. Those tests usually get more than just urine; they were capturing the soap residue on the baby's skin.
Scientists say none of these soaps actually contain any marijuana, just that something in the soap is triggering the false positive.
Scientists ultimately decided this was an important study to let hospitals know that when a test comes back positive for marijuana they should do a blood test, too.

I've seen videos of parents blowing the smoke in the face of their baby and or holding the joint to the mouth in hopes the child breathes enough in. I think there are a few videos of babysitter's doing it as well. They aren't technically 'wasting' the weed, but it's close enough. Contact high.

Re: Baby Soap Residue Causes False Positives In Marijuana Tests

My question is this. Why were they piss-testing babies in the first place?

my assumption is thats what they do when a child is put in CPS.. but im not sure what protocol they follow.

as for babies.. let me get this straight.. do they gather their urine from soaked diapers?
