I was just making a statement. If they test positive for drugs then the kids will be taken away. So dont have to worry about the kids because they wont be with their crackhead mom anymore!

Huh? Since when do kids get taken away when their parents get tested positive for drugs?
Anyway, some people use their drugs recreationally and it has no bearing on their ability to parent. Of course this is not a black and white situation but drug user does not always = bad parent.

Not saying they are bad parents but when ur kids is dressed in rags and u have your ounce of weed in your drawer thats a problem. And I worked in a peds clinic and I know a great amount of parents who have lost,their kids for having a positive drug test. And yes some peoples priorities are messed up but thats ok for america to pay to take care of these kids and supply food and contInue to let the parents misuse the system ya no. have a great day. No need for debate!

Lol. No argument here. I personally believe when you have a kid you need to leave the drugs behind. No kid wants to see or should have to see their parent high!

I'm just not a fan of letting innocent children starve because their parents make bad choices. And I'm also not stupid enough to think drugs automatically make bad parents that's why I said it is not a black and white situation as you make it out to be. And you do realize there are plenty of "role model" citizens who are doing the most heinous things to their children, right? So we'll let little Jane get molested by her father every night because hey! at least he's sober! While poor little Bobby goes to bed hungry everyday because his parent have their priorities all screwed up.

Not to mention all the pill poppers and alcoholics.

Well if someone does drugs they certainly aren't GOOD parents.



My parents abused drugs and received gov help, but of course they sold it or used it for drugs. We were put into foster care and every foster kid I met had horrible parents who did drugs, abusive etc. My personal and very real experience shows drugs=bad parents. Their first thought is the drug, not the kid. They will always put the drug first even if it means the kid suffers

I agree. My dad did drugs until I was 9 and he got busted and had to go to rehab. He has stayed sober all these years since. He was careful to never do drugs in front of us, but I can remember somehow knowing he was high and that it wasn't something I was supposed to talk about with my friends at school. I always felt "bad" in some way because of it and worried someone would smell something on my clothes and know what was going on.
I don't think kids should have to deal with that...
"Responsible" drug use is just a lie people use to make themselves feel better.

I get frustrated with the way the world is going today too. It seems like people, even parents, don't seem to think the "real world" is good enough and they need drugs to make it better. I'm a non-drug user and non drinker and I love life and I feel no need to use drugs to alter my mind in any way. I feel sorry for the kids of drug users. I get called too "vanilla," but I just want my son and unborn child to have the best childhood and life possible. If I can spare them the memories I have of my childhood, I definitely will.

Dear god. I do not know what other way to say it. Because you people have your own specific memory and/or experience you are choosing to make a blanket statement and that's just stupid.



I didn't say a drug user is a good parent. I am saying that *some*
for the love of god
SOME SOME SOME SOME SOME
people who use drugs do not neglect their children.
And btw, I do not do drugs but I have the ability to utilize common sense and not take one instance or experience and say it is like that across the board.

some people don't understand the difference between people who ''use'' drugs (recreational/ prescription) and those who ''abuse'' them :( I have a friend that started ''using'' pot for anxiety instead of the script the dr prescribed. She is fully functional & takes wonderful care of her kids while ''using'' pot. On the Xanax she was a zombie that couldn't wipe her own ass much less change her kids diaper.
