At 2 years, cocaine babies suffer cognitive development effects

our study indicates that tobacco exposure also has significant negative effects on infant development. Our findings also indicate that the quality of stimulation and environmental intervention can have a large effect on childrens mental development independent of cocaine or other drug exposure.

About one million children have been born after fetal cocaine exposure since the mid-1980s, when the crack epidemic emerged with the marketing of a cheap, potent, easily available, smokeable form of cocaine.

We hope that this study will convince public policy and health providers that there needs to be a major emphasis on the provision of drug treatment, including smoking cessation, and mental health services for women especially poor women who are currently underserved, Singer said.
