What if Crack Babies were a myth?

Anyone who has spent any amount of time in a NICU in an inner-city hospital knows that addicted newborns (including crack babies) are born every day. Unless you've heard their incessant blood-curdling screams, seen their tremors, seen them vomiting, seen them unable to sleep, and given them morphine to ease their withdrawals until you ween them, you can't remotely imagine how bad they suffer. They spend weeks in the NICU, where their mothers often don't even visit them. Search on drug addicted newborns on YouTube.

How can it possible be a myth! Iv seen far to much evidence of this with babies.
