Second Hand Marijuana Smoke And Babies
Yes: Babies and children who passively smoke cigarettes or marijuana are not only set up for lifelong lung disease, the absorbed toxins also cause developmental and behavioral problems. Parents who are intoxicated, stoned or high should never be sole caretakers of infants or children because of the high risk of accidents. Legally, it's considered child abuse/neglect to do so. ...Read more
Maybe: Tell your obstetrician up front that you're around second-hand marijuana.

Sure: Whatever's in the air, gets breathed in by those present.

Last night I believed I smelled marijuana coming inside my house from the neighbor. What are the odds of getting high from second hand smoke?

Either way, the odor is distinctive enough that you should be able to notice it and make an exit. Those who pay for the test are not interested in how you got it into your system. If it is there, there are consequences. ...Read more

Is it unsafe to expose a baby to third hand marijuana smoke? (ie. The smoke absorbed on a persons clothing/skin who just smoked it)
I think that's a YES: Honestly speaking, if it's ONLY once then, risk of harm probably no worse than exposing the baby to breathing normal FRESH air of the suburbs. However, in my experience, babies who are already exposed to adults within their circles whose clothes are impregnated with odors and smoke from marijuana, as well as tobacco, etc. Are extremely likely to be exposed multiple times in their lifetimes. ...Read more
