Couple Arrested After Allegedly Giving Newborn Drugs to Mask Mom’s Addiction

Addiction is an awful thing, but what is worse is that it’s affecting children more and more at an alarming rate.

A Utah couple have recently been arrested after police allege they fed their newborn daughter drugs that would mask the fact that she had been born addicted to drugs.

The couple allegedly crushed up Suboxone, an FDA-approved drug used to treat heroin addiction and withdrawal and then applied it to the child’s gums so they would be able to mask any withdrawl symptoms from hospital staff.
