Addiction and Substance Abuse
my son bieng a 2 yr old child tested positive for cocaine in his system i dont know where he got it from but from reading onile i have read it stays in your system for at least 3-5 days but when he went the next morning not even bieng 24hrs later they found he was negative how could that be?
If your 2-year-old son tested positive for cocaine, Children's Services needs to be informed as soon as possible. Someone exposed him to cocaine and this needs to be investigated. A 2-year-old could die if exposed to cocaine. Cocaine and its metabolites stay in the urine for 2 to 3 days. The urine could be positive 1 day and negative the next day. Why was a urine drug screen done in the first place? This is a very concerning situation!
