Commonly used baby soaps and shampoos, including products from Johnson
& Johnson, Aveeno and CVS, can trigger a positive result on
newborns' marijuana screening tests, according to a recent study.
A minute amount of the cleansing products in a urine sample — just 0.1
milliliters or less — was found to cause a positive result.
at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, began studying the
issue after an unusually high number of newborns in their nursery began
testing positive for marijuana exposure. Newborn screening for marijuana
at hospitals, particularly among babies of women who are considered at
high risk of drug use, is not uncommon: at U.N.C. Chapel Hill, 10% to
40% of newborns are tested.
