Ohio Children's Services Agencies to Stop testing for THC and CBD

We ask that Ohio State Funded Children's Protective Services agencies stop wasting money on something soon to be state regulated. We ask for them to stop testing for THC and CBD. 

  Many Ohio families have been ripped apart for parents smoking marijuana. Substantial emotional and financial costs are effecting those families and the tax payers. Many of the families effected by THC drug tests have children placed in foster care. And this has cost the tax payers countless of thousands of dollars. 

   Many of these tests are being skewed against them by testing for almost impossible amounts. Children's Services has a cut off of 0.5 ng for THC. The FDA recommends a cut off of 40ng. Other drugs such as Meth and Heroin having a cut off of 20ng. The FDA recommends 20ng cut off.

   As Tax Payers our taxes pay $15.00 per drug test a week minimum  for THC and CBD smokers. That's $60 a month per persons test. On top of what we are paying the foster homes to care for these children.

   Children are being emotionally damaged. And that cost is unimaginable. As these children will be effected their whole lives from this.

 We As tax payers do not want our tax money wasted on a witch hunt against a drug that is legal. And We feel if someone has a qualifying medical condition and is not using recreationally that they should not be subjected to this type of treatment.

 

We ask that Ohio State Funded Children's Protective Services agencies stop wasting money on something soon to be state regulated. We ask for them to stop testing for THC and CBD.

Ohio In June 2016 passed House Bill 523.

The Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program will allow people with certain medical conditions, upon the recommendation of an Ohio-licensed physician certified by the State Medical Board, to purchase and use medical marijuana.
