HelloThey can say anything they want. However, it does not mean that it is so. Like Police when they use interrogation tactics, the social workers can say whatever they want in an investigation to try to get to the truth. It is an unfortunate technique, but it is not illegal.
I suggest that investigations of this nature are not generally opened and closed. They do take time. I suggest that you will want to consider going to a local clinic and requesting to be tested for use of any and all illegal substances. That way, when you take the test for the state, you can also have your results showing they are negative.It is unfortunate that good parents are treated this way. Keep in mind, that at any time the worker feels the children are in danger she can have them removed from the home.
And so you also may want to consult with a local criminal defense attorney who can contact her and tell her to make a charge or stop the harassment.
I suggest yes, it should be closed. But again, it is it your benefit to have an independent drug screening to compare
The complaint involves drug use and in that regard, when it returns negative, there is no longer a basis for the investigation
