Stay away from pot: One can eat a healthy, balanced diet, and do some light to moderate daily exercise as tolerated. That's good for a pregnancy. Of course, one must stop any and all further association with marijuana users. It's best to avoid future contact with any recreational drug users, regardless of what they call themselves.

Stop: If you had a brief exposure/smoking event your pee may clear within a week. Heavy users can take months to clear since the THC binds to your fat cells & leaks out over time. If I look for it in baby I am likely to find it, so you need to stay off it while pregnant. It does questionable things to a fetus. In my state if they find it, baby goes to foster care & you go to the courthouse.
