State Tries to Take Katrina Evacuee's Newborn

A Texas hospital performed an illegal drug test on a Katrina evacuee's newborn baby and, based on a false positive result for marijuana, contacted Child Protective Services, who took custody of the newborn and her 3-year-old brother.

The drug test turned out to be wrong and hospital officials were unable to explain how they legally obtrained the urine sample.

"I told them, 'I don't do drugs, so I'm wondering how did you all find marijuana in my child's system when I don't smoke marijuana,'" Jackson told KPRC Local 2.

CPS said they also took custody of the children because case investigators believed the Jacksons were a flight risk.

The entire family underwent a new round of drug tests, in which all of the results came back negative.


The baby has since been returned to its family.
