Almost 300,000 pregnant women at facilities in Kaiser Permanente Northern California responded to a survey about their pot use, and also gave samples of urine for a toxicology analysis.

From 2009 to 2016, marijuana use among moms-to-be jumped from 4.2% to 7.1%, the study said. From 2002 to 2014, the prevalence of self-reported, past-month marijuana use among United States adult pregnant women increased from 2.4% to 3.9%.

There's a new study out suggesting more pregnant women appear to be using marijuana, sometimes to soothe anxiety and morning sickness.

The CDC says marijuana's effects on a fetus are not clear.

However, the institute says more research must be done to determine which effects are related to marijuana exposure and which are related to environmental factors that could be associated with the mother's marijuana use, such as poverty or other drug use.




The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has also cautioned against the use of marijuana among pregnant women, instead recommending alternative medicinal therapies.

The researcher said the amount of marijuana consumed and how often a person uses it is a factor. A total of 3.3 percent of women older than 34 also reported to using the drug during their pregnancy in 2016, an increase from 2.1 percent in 2009.

"Marijuana is detectable in urine approximately 30 days after last use and this varies with heaviness of use and marijuana potency", she said.

While studies on pregnant women who use marijuana have been limited, the researchers state that prenatal use of marijuana may impair fetal growth and neurodevelopment. The study adds that prenatal use may increase even more in 2018, after recreational use of marijuana is set to become legal in California. There are those who want to reduce risks of bad things happening to as close to zero as possible and improve outcomes any way they can.
