Clean Bill of Health?By Matt Tapia
Next time you fail a drug test, tell your supervisors that Johnson & Johnson is the real culprit. We’re not kidding. Researchers at the University of North Carolina recently discovered that household products such as shampoo and baby soap can trigger a positive result in newborns tested for cannabis, Time Healthland reports. Researchers suspect that small amounts of such products are making their way into urine samples commonly taken for marijuana screenings for babies of mothers considered at high risk for substance abuse. But it’s unclear why these products are triggering false-positive results. Some of the products that indicated marijuana metabolites (a chemical leftover that indicates cannabis had previously ingested) include Johnson & Johnson’s Bedtime Bath, Aveeno Baby Wash & Shampoo, Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Creamy Wash and CVS Night-Time Baby Bath. Bath time will never be the same.
