CPS is looking for reasons to take children from their parents. It doesn't matter if a child has ever actually been abused or neglected. They want kids... because that's what makes the system work.

Your medical marijuana use may not have hurt your child directly, but it gives the social workers something they can take before a judge, to say you're so stoned all the time you can't possibly be taking proper care of the child. They will call this neglect. With your child in a foster home the system gets money from the federal government. That's what they want. Money, money, money!

Therefore I recommend that parents not use medical marijuana while they have children under the age of eighteen. Not because it is bad (honestly, I recognize that for many people it is the BEST medication) ... but because the CPS system will use it to take the children.

A word of hope: many people who have been accused of using drugs do get their children back after going through some kind of rehab and being cooperative. You must do everything on the court ordered service plan and never miss a visit with your child.

Basically, they caught you red-handed being a drug user (legal or not, it doesn't matter) ... and so there's no denying it. But you now have to decide between the medicine and the child.

Please continue to post here and let us know how your case progresses. Document everything you do to complete the court ordered service plan so you can present that documentation in court.
