    Typically child welfare doesn't remove children JUST because there's dope in the home...if there's dope in the home and the parent refuses to work with child welfare, they will take the kids. If the kids test positive, they'll take the kids.

    So there's probably a lot more to this story.

    What the original poster neglected to mention is that police accused the woman's boyfriend of dealing drugs out of the apartment. Her son was returned to her custody under the conditions that the boyfriend not return to the apartment and she undergo random drug tests. A parent smoking a little pot around the house isn't going to get police and child welfare worked up...someone selling pot out of a house in which there are minors will.

    Yup.

    Child welfare will approach the parents, say there's a problem, what can we do to address this?

    When the parents refuse to address it is when they consider removing the kids.

    I suspect that the mom was told, "your bf is selling drugs out of the house, what are you willing to do to make sure this doesn't happen any more"....and the mom most likely said "f-you, he's my boyfriend, I didn't do anything wrong" yada yada yada.

    so essentially mom chose her druggie boyfriend over the kids.

    So that explains why the kids were removed. I fully agree that kids should not be in the home of a drug dealer. While I don't support people doing MJ, it certainly isn't a reason to take someone's children away.

    Ah, it was in the same NYTimes article that the OP cited? I wish people would read more than the first few paragraphs of what they cite here. If Betty Boop had done so the reason why Protective Services took custody of the children would have been very apparent. Instead she took the usual progressive tact that the police are out to "get" minorities for no reason at all. It's a fact that the mother involved did not have a prior criminal record. I'd be willing to bet the same could not be said for her live-in boyfriend.

    You see how that works? The US Government arms drug cartels to kill other drug cartels who don't launder their money in the correct American Banks (That's on record).

    THEN, they help smuggle drugs into the US by leaving the borders wide open. But when you or I smoke that stuff or inject it in our veins we get our asses thrown in jail!

    That's Freedom!
