  • Is it legal for the hospitals in Massachusetts to test a newborn baby for drugs?

    Hello. I am curious about a law in Massachusetts. Is it legal for the hospitals in Western Mass. to test a newborn baby for illicit drugs (such as cocaine or marijuana) at the hospital unless the mother is suspected of using? A friend of mine's baby was taken away because she had weed in her system.

    They can test if needed for a general medical purpose at the time or if they suspect any kind of problem may exist.
