Luckily for your son, CPS is not the final available word. I find it difficult to fathom how someone who regularly abuses drugs would not have an impaired ability to care for a child. But then my mind has been muddled by years of higher education and decades of experience which includes some people who endure life via chemical modification.
No. Drug use/abuse by a parent is specifically a situation where the Family Division of the Circuit Court can take jurisdiction over a child. It generally falls under the parent's failure to provide proper care and custody. It is presumed to negatively affect the child. You should consult an attorney that practices family law.
