Default Is this right

Even though mom and baby had tested positive for pot ,mom had to sign a tca with cas, baby put in foster home but visits with dad 4 days per week, mother only had supervised visits, then mother again tested positive, cas is sending child back to mom instead of leaving her in the foster home dad really wants her but they are not allowing dad to have her full time
How can cas return a child to the mom if she test positive for drugs, something not right here

Not sure if pot smoking is grounds to lose custody of your child?

Yes. I have been told flat out by CAS that occasional pot smoking is not a concern to them.

Yeah.. I didn't think so.

Technically, a woman can drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes/pot when she is pregnant, and she is not doing anything "illegal"...

The CAS sho;uldn't be making custody decisions and god help us if they start. By that I mean if the mom has custody, the CAS does not decide to give it to the dad. The courts do that.

I think it's hurting you to focus on the CAS and for you to be upset that they didn't do something that shouldn't be within their power.

If the mom currently has custody, the CAS can seek the child be apprehended and put into foster care, but they can't just turn the custody over to the father.

Focus on the positives that the father can present to the child and seek custody from the courts on that basis and don't pick useless fights with the CAS. It's just a waste.
