I Love Northern BC!

5 per cent of Prince George babies born drug addicted, hospital says

"The hospital tracked 43 drug-addicted babies that were born in the
region in 2007, representing five per cent of births, but Hay suspects
the real number may be higher, because doctors can't test newborns for
drugs unless the parents give consent.

In comparison, less than one per cent of newborns suffer from fetal alcohol syndrome."


How completely insane is that?
It's a sign not only of how out-of-controll drug use is in this province but of how little support there is for recovery.
