At various levels of cocaine exposure, these variables may confound, mediate, or moderate drug effects. However, despite these advances in research, there remain intrinsic methodological constraints in human studies. For example, it is still difficult to ascertain whether cocaine and other psychoactive substance exposures have occurred at all. Even more complex is the problem of determining gestational timing of exposure and the acute and cumulative doses to which the fetus was exposed. Understanding these constraints will facilitate an informed interpretation of available data and future study designs.

Hair with high concentrations of melanin binds cocaine metabolites more readily than blond or white hair (Reid, O’Connor, & Crayton, 1994).
