If I smoked weed during the pregnancy, does this mean there is a higher chance of my child having an asd?

In brief: Not Necessarily

Marijuana intake during pregnancy has been associated with some behavioral and other issues, but not specifically with an ASD as far as i understand.

In brief: Smoking

Smoking in pregnancy is associated with small for gestational age baby.
There is no particular evidence that ASD is higher with smoking weeds (it doesn't mean it is safe!).
