According to charges filed Monday, the 24-year-old mother admitted to medical staff and police that she is addicted to meth and used it while pregnant. She was booked in a Washington County facility on 10,000 dollars bail. But state officials and health experts say the law was never intended to prosecute pregnant women.</p> Wed, 23 Apr 2014 23:17:00 +0000 Andrea Smardon 45312 at http://kuer.org Utah Mother Arrested for Using Meth While Pregnant
