1-YES!IT IS ABSOLUTELY POSSIBLE (AND PROBABLE IF THE MOTHER-TO-BE SMOKED A FEW MONTHS PRIOR TO BIRTH AND REMAINED CLEAN EVER SINCE) FOR INFANT TO TEST DIRTY ["AT BIRTH"] WHILE THE MOTHER PASSED CLEAN.
2-I DON'T KNOW HOW THC IS TRACED BUT THE SAMPLE THAT THEY WILL GET FROM THE INFANT IS FROM THE FIRST STOOL SAMPLE THE BABY PASSES......WHICH IN TURN IS ABOUT 2-3 or 4 MONTHS OLD(the baby eats the lining that has surrounded it through the pregnancy)
3-i guess you'd know best what the odds are....(if you smoked in your 6th or 7th month then the infant will most likely test dirty
