    You didn't have to agree to take the tests.

    You have the right to remain silent, and that applies to child services.

    Had you refused their requests, you'd have forced them to let it go, or take it to court.

    If it goes to court, you and the woman each get a public defender to protect your rights.

    Each child would also get his/her lawyer, too.

    You can choose to tell child services go away, you no longer wish to comply.

    What happens if you do that, I've told you above.

    It's always better to not get involved with any government agency, but if that can't be helped, ALWAYS politely say, "I invoke. I want a lawyer, and will use my RIGHT to remain silent!"

    Now, if drugs are an issue, check yourselves VOLUNTARILY into inpatient rehab, leave your kids with a trusted adult, and get well.

    Drug abuse destroys your finances, your health, your family, and eventually steals your life.

    Worry about getting off of drugs - you should not be dealing with children and should not have custody of them if you two are drug users.

    Amazing that you would think it's ok to do drugs around a baby. That even in the so called "Spare Time" you should be allowed to do whatever you wish. A parent is a 24/7 job to a young child so you don't have spare time. They were right in taking the child away. Now if you two continue to do drugs this child will grow up in someone else house.

    You should have said no to the tests and got a lawyer.

    You didn't pass a test - you failed the follicle test.

    No doing drugs when you have children is wrong even if it's marijuana. When you have kids that's your priority. I guess if you love marijuana more keep doing that and your kids can go somewhere that people make them the priority. Doing drugs of any kind is going to get you in trouble so is a little weed really worth your kids being taken away?

    Regardless of the result of the drug test there would almost certainly have to be other circumstances that justified removal of a child. Your use of marijuana is not likely the only factor.

    If you want to productively use your spare time you should learn how to spell and write instead of smoking weed.

    Sure they can ask.

    You can reread my post to discover what to do next.


    Contrary to public misconception DRUG ABUSE is illegal, even the dreaded "loco weed" and it's BY PRODUCTS.

    Then don't come on public forums - you get what you get. They very well could take your kid just keep that in mind as you continue to get high.

    My response is essentially the same. They are unlikely to take a child simply because you test positive for marijuana.
    Absent a court order, your cooperation with their requests is voluntary.
