    Apparently he just got his information of the internet and turns out he isn't very good at googling......
    That's just crazy. Hopefully he learnt something from this too.

    I think that's unfair, our family judges do the best they can with the information they are given. Most of the time everyone is upset with what they decide. There's no winners in these cases and I'm over hearing judges getting bad mouthed and blamed because they have to make impossible decisions.

    the mother admitted to smoking marijuana as well so maybe the decision was best for the toddler?

    If you smoke marijuana and breastfeed, the active chemical in marijuana is passed to your baby through your milk. For this reason, most experts, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, advise nursing moms to abstain from marijuana while breastfeeding.
    For ethical reasons, very little research has been done on the effects of marijuana on a breastfeeding baby. But we do know that traces of the active chemical in marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, stay in the body for four to six weeks and are found in the urine of breastfeeding babies whose mothers use marijuana. THC is fat soluble, which means it builds up with chronic use and can be stored in fat tissue for months.
    We also know that babies are much more vulnerable than adults to illness, infection, chemicals, and so on. That alone is a compelling reason to avoid marijuana and anything else potentially harmful that can enter your baby's body through your milk.

    Then I would suggest the judge should have required her to submit regular drug tests with the view that if she continued to use then custody or similar type consequences would be considered.

    There is a bit more information in this article.

    Seems the father is trying anything and everything to justify not returning the child after a visit. I'm glad this has been bumped up to Family Court, where the judges are more used to looking at highly contentious cases.

    Nah. Not unfair. Before you deny someone a basic human right you make sure you have your ducks in a row. If your a judge you make your your decisions are beyond reproach.
    This dude made a call on what was essentially a medical issue ... Based on research from google. That's appalling. He should have deferred to an expert witness with medical training. Google - seriously? wtf.

    If the decision was based on credible evidence the mum had been smoking marijuana will breastfeeding, and was still smoking marijuana, I would have agreed with the decision. The fact that the tatoo things came into it at all - despite negative blood tests and a relatively safe industry in Aus - that's when the judge lost credibility in my eyes.
