Is it harmful if you smoke marijuana while pregnant?

Marijuana

Cannabis
YES. Literature shows marijuana is potentially harmful to embryonic development as early as 2 weeks after conception. In-utero exposure has been linked to anencephaly, a condition in which the forebrain fails to form, as well as with later development of ADHD, learning disabilities, memory impairment, depression, and aggression. Pre-1997 no detrimental effects on pregnancy were reported&believed.

I agree with Dr. Ferguson. Marijuana can also damage the placenta that nourishes your baby during pregnancy. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/09/120912101806.htm In addition, research shows more likelihood of deficits in school achievement, & trouble with problem solving, memory, planning, impulsivity, attention, & depressive symptoms in kids who were exposed to it in utero.

Some of the toxins you inhale with every cigarette will enter your blood and travel thru the umbilical cord to baby.It is well documented that the newborn of a marijuana smoker will have a smaller skull volume & the question of related learning problems has conflicting findings.
