new york drug testing

I am curious how they drug test newborns after birth in NY. Do they test at prenatal visits? I did not know I was pregnant until my 2nd trimester and smoked pot until I found out. Thank you ladies

They could test meconium if they so chose (first baby poop) which can detect use anytime after 20 weeks. But I don't know if there are laws or specific hospital policies regarding testing (probably not), or if they test based on specific reasons. Late entry to prenatal care is considered a valid reason to test, but they have to ask for your consent (in theory).
