Question: I am a 15 year old father and wanting to know if I will be drug tested after the baby is born at the hospital. They have drug tested the mother 4 times. She is clean she is an angel but I do smoke some pot and am concerned

Answer: At the time the child is born, drug testing the child or parents is a medical issue rather than a legal one. If the medical staff are reasonably concerned that a child may have drugs in its system they will likely test the child and potentially the mother. It is unlikely that the father would be drug tested.
