  • Study Say Maximum Pregnant Women Smoking Pot 27122017

More and more expectant mothers are using marijuana in states where it is legal, the results of a new study of California women suggests.

The study analyzed data from 280,000, gathered from 2009 to 2016.

The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that women who are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding should avoid the drug because the effects of marijuana on unborn and newborn children are not well known. "In aggregated 2002-2012 data, 14.6 percent of USA pregnant adolescents reported past-month use". The largest increase in use was found in subjects younger than 18 years of age to 24-year olds.

California was the fist state in the U.S. to legalize medical marijuana in 1996.

One study from JAMA says pregnant females in California are increasingly using marijuana during pregnancy.

Researchers said reefer gladness among pregnant women under 18, jumped from 9.8% to 19% and from 12.5% to 21.8% for women in the 18 to 24-year-old demographic.

"Marijuana is [one of] the most commonly used illicit drugs during pregnancy, and its use is increasing", the study says.
