    SC - Two Arrested After Children Test Positive For Meth

    http://www.wspa.com/story/22563702/t...itive-for-meth

    LAURENS COUNTY, S.C. -
    Deputies arrested Mary and David Arringtron of Gray Court after they, and four children, tested positive for Methamphetmine.


    Very little else in article; all 4 children are with social services, and parents? have bond hearing soon.

    The little foster girl I take care of tested positive for meth in her hair from exposure from the mother's use. Hopefully, these children didn't have it in their system. Prayers for all four children

    That's terrible. Why in the world do people get into that stuff and destroy not only their own lives but their children's lives as well? Can't they see from the examples of others that drugs aren't good for them and won't do anything but ruin their lives and get them in trouble with the law.

    What prompts LE to test kids for drugs?

    Good question. I've looked for more information but that is the only article I've seen so far. Very curious also about how LE got involved. Did someone report the parents; were the children sick from the drugs and taken to the hospital and tested there?

    I'm glad they are out of the situation now at least. This could have been fatal for all 4 children.

    It is not an intellectual problem. It is an emotional/psychological problem. If knowledge stopped alcoholism and drug abuse, no smart, intelligent people would be alcoholics or addicts. And we know that is not the case.

    A pediatrician could have screened a urine sample during a visit, prompted by some subtle signs the pediatrician noticed on a physical exam. MD's are required reporters of abuse and neglect.
