Baby Soap Linked To Infants Testing Positive For Marijuana (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

A new study out of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill reveals some baby soaps may cause infants to test positive for marijuana, reports My Health News Daily.

While researchers aren't sure why the tests came out positive, they asserted infants were not experiencing a "high" from the soap.

"It's not marijuana in any way, shape or form," said study researcher Catherine Hammett-Stabler, a professor of pathology and laboratory medicine at the University of North Carolina.

Researchers first became aware of the issue when nurses at a North Carolina hospital noticed a high number of positive urine tests, according to WFMY News.

The study was conducted so families wouldn't be falsely accused of exposing children to illegal drugs, a form of child abuse that would need to be reported to social services.
