  • More pregnant women are smoking weed to help with their symptoms

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.

"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.
