Marijuana: Not Harmless for Moms and Their Babies

The growing and powerful marijuana industry wants the public to believe that the drug they promote is harmless, or even beneficial for many medical conditions. But a major study of nearly 300,000 pregnant women in JAMA – the Journal of the American Medical Association – shows that getting high is dangerous for expectant mothers.

An appalling 19% of pregnant California women between 18 and 24 used pot regularly during the first months of pregnancy; among mothers under 18, a full 22% indulged.

Despite the belief that weed might help combat morning sickness discomfort, the CDC—the Center for Disease Control and Prevention—shows major perils for the unborn baby, including increased risk of low birth weight and serious developmental problems. Most women know they should avoid alcohol while bearing and then nursing a baby, but medical research shows they haven’t gotten the same important message about marijuana—which, despite its trendy popularity, threatens serious impact on both adults and their offspring.

    Add it to the list of things that the left can't think about critically…animals, American indians, voter ID, GMO's, alternative medicine, the transgender movement, gluten, non-organic foods, guns, the police, the vietnam war (or any war for that matter), the benefits of higher education, bias in the media, Obama, Oprah, etc, etc, etc, and marijuana.

    Lots of people left and right against pot. Silence on both sides re: alcohol that kills millions. Cigarettes and alcohol are the main causes off esophageal and throat cancer. BTW, Uncle Ike, by large the biggest pot seller in Seattle is Jewish.

    Pleeeze, do you want to be taken seriously, and engage in serious debate, or do you want to just spout liberal clap-trap?
