Pot smoking breast feeder

Patient: My ex wife is a chronic (multiple times daily) marijuana smoker. She has been breastfeeding our one year old son since he was born and smoking pot the entire time. We are in the midst of a custody battle. My question is, is enough marijuana transferred to him through her breast milk to show up on a hair follicle test of the baby? Will her use affect him?Thanks.
