Growing number of pregnant women using marijuana
A study of 277,000 pregnant women in Northern California, where weed is legal, found their use of marijuana has nearly doubled. The increase was especially dramatic among women who used daily to deal with morning sickness, migraines, and depression.

So what do you think? Is marijuana safe to smoke during pregnancy?

Hell No

A fetus in the womb is a formative entity being molded to hopefully be a healthy newborn child.

introduction of such a mind altering substance to a forming mind, that isn't anybody's, but that babies , to waste.

Tough it the hell out for 9months!

F U Can't, U shouldn't be having a child ,

just a thought

In the absence of studies, there's no way to say.  I'd rather see mothers err on the side of caution.  There are medications that can be taken for pain and nausea that are safe in pregnancy.  And for those mothers taking cannabis by way of smoking marijuana, just the act of inhaling smoke, any type of smoke, can be harmful.  It reduces oxygenation.  I can't imagine that's good for the fetus.

Dear Friend Sandy: I concur.

Let the scientific investigators and clinical study co-ordinators do their jobs.

The answer to this one is for the future.

I would think that smoking weed while pregnant might have some adverse effects on the fetus.

But it is the woman's sole choice to make.

I know a little about this fricken subject.

NO ONE has the 'right' to poison the mind of a formative being.

Not the mother, or the father, nor N E Other.

Would you fertilize your vegetable garden with Magical Mushroom cow shit, then raise seeded undergrown d grown fruits of the Loom,

horizontally, but from a diagnagle angle taken to the brink,

of tripping, over the edge, of the edge,

Would you allow an infant to Fire Up.

If not, we R on, at least, the same chapter of the auto biography i'm authoring for others

Sure, why not?

If you think I am anti-abortion, well then, you'd be wrong.

To me, it is a little hypocritical for people who support abortion rights to be overly concerned about what a pregnant woman does with her body.

What say you?

Bull-fucking-shit.

You assumed that because I am conservative, that I am anti-abortion, and you thought you had me in some "gotcha" situation.

I don't need people to agree with me, I think for myself and hold my own opinions despite what others may think.

Asked to a contrarian of the highest order. An adult response should have never been expected. My bad. Go for a walk, get some fresh air, step away, Tex. Your 'inane' rebuttals tell everyone you may need a respite. Last word...sure to follow, is yours.

I am, unfortunately the left calls me a nazi a lot of the time when I point the logical conclusions, of scientific advances in Genetic testing coupled with abortion on demand, there are certain segments of the population that will be facing extinction level events. It will be interesting to see if her body her choice holds.

On a side note, the state of Arkansas agrees with IRulz in this matter, (bet you didn’t see that one coming), approx. 1300 babies were taken from their mother at birth because of drugs in the babies system, 65% were Marijuana related. 

On the plus side 70% had no health issues, and Marijuana had the smallest percent of those that did at 27%, Benzo’s and coke had the highest.

I don't think mothers should smoke pot while pregnant but there's probably not a lot of harm happening there.  I have a huge problem with the state of Arkansas drug testing newborn babies with the intention of prosecuting the mothers.  Nothing good can come from that.

Men really should butt out... but hey!

Pregnancy is a biochemically fraught time, with two independent immune systems coexisting. Very tricky!

So... less unknown stuff is better. Somebody is surely already doing the cost/benefit studies, so it's probably a good idea to wait a bit.

I was very angry when I saw that. I would consider that child endangerment. They don’t deserve to have a child.  

I asked my doctor that would be safe to take, he gave me a short list. I never took anything when I was pregnant.  If I had a headache I would but a cool rag on my head and lay down. Morning sickness comes with the package. I was lucky and never had it, but everyone I knew went through it and survived.

There is no way I would put my baby at any risk for taking something that could harm them.

Those woman are very stupid.

I would assume that the effect would not be far off what the effect of smoking tobacco would be.  My ex-wife, the mother of my two kids, was VERY careful about anything that could possibly be toxic during her pregnancies and both our kids are healthy and bright.

This is nothing but propaganda to turn people against legalization.

I suppose as I am and have been a habitual ingester of weed for longer than I care to remember, this will be a bit hypocritical.

While I do believe that ones own body is a personal amusement park there for the taking, when one is pregnant there is a second party to consider. As the early years are the formative ones, I would give the kid a fighting chance and abstain for the gestation period, if nothing else that first doobie after nine months will be worth the wait.

I am sure there will be or is a long term study of the effects, but I would think it not a good thing.

If you smoke while pregnant you are an unfit sack of shit. While I support legalization of all drugs I do not think it wise to endanger another life that has no choice.

No...no drugs during pregnancy...period. 

Women used to drink and smoke cigs during pregnancy until low birth weights became associated with smoking cigs.  Drinking a glass of wine occasionally was common too.

My best friend was born to a woman (41 at the time) who smoked cigs and drank cocktails nightly.  Definitely not good for a healthy person or baby, although she was fine.  I always got so sick in the beginning of my pregnancies it was easy not to do them.  Healthy habits and eating are important.
