Happy’s Father’s Day: Don’t Smoke Pot Around the Baby or Wash Them (Wait, What?!)

Certain soaps used to wash babies shortly after birth may cause the baby to test positive for marijuana on some newborn screening tests, a new study suggests.

In the study, urine samples that contained minute amounts of any of five baby soaps — Johnson & Johnson’s Head-to-Toe Baby Wash, J&J Bedtime Bath, CVS Night-Time Baby Bath, Aveeno Soothing Relief Creamy Wash and Aveeno Wash Shampoo — gave a positive result on a drug screening test for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active ingredient in marijuana.

The researchers began their investigation after nurses at a North Carolina hospital reported an increase in the number of newborns testing positive for marijuana.

Is this why people enjoy taking a deep breath of baby? 🙂 I never knew. 🙂

The soaps do NOT contain THC so the babies are not getting high but it’s just triggering the tests to be positive … so if you fail your drug screening to be a nuclear power monitor, now you can blame the baby wash …

You can read the rest via MSNBC.

    Ummmmm, sorry random drug test guy from work … we were like out of regular people soap at the house, and all I could find was the baby soap … and I was like “what the heck, I need to get clean, right”? … and … wait what was I saying? Is anyone else hungry? Your face is like so kind, man. Oh yeah, so my dog said the funniest thing today… zzzzzzzzzz

    (MET: Hahaha).

    Ummm… why exactly did anyone test a baby for pot in the first place? Oh right, because they are lining up the parent of the year candidates.

    Um,my boys have sensitive skin, so they still use the J&J and Aveeno babywashes, perhaps I should reconsider!

    When my daughters were babies , all they wanted to do was lay around the house and eat all day. Couldn’t even form a complete sentence without slobbering all over themselves. In fact, they couldn’t form a complete sentence. I can’t believe I didn’t think to have them tested. I’m sure if they popped they would have just used the baby shampoo excuse anyways. At least they all have seemed to straighten up during their toddler years.

    Only you would find this one, Met. 🙂 Happy Father’s Day to everyone!
