Yes, absolutely this could happen. But there is no way to predict this. That is, simply because a child is born to a mother who exhibited in utero drug use does not assure that the child will have problems. Is it more likely that such a child will have some problems compared with children whose mother had no in utero drug exposure? Yes, but if problems occur they can also be associated with factors (e.g., poor health of the mother, inadquate pre-natal care) other than the drug exposure per se.
