Pregnant women are increasingly using cannabis, according to two studies published this year:

More pregnant women seem to be using pot -- sometimes to ease the nausea of morning sickness or heightened anxiety -- and a new study suggests that this slight rise in marijuana use is most pronounced among those younger in age. The prevalence of marijuana use among a sample of moms-to-be in California climbed from 4.2% to 7.1% from 2009 through 2016, according to a research letter published in the journal JAMA on Tuesday [DOI: 10.1001/jama.2017.17225] [DX]. Among pregnant teens younger than 18, marijuana use climbed from 12.5% to 21.8%, and among women 18 to 24, marijuana use climbed from 9.8% to 19%, the researchers found.

That research involved only certain women in California, but a separate study of pregnant women across the United States, published in JAMA [open, DOI: 10.1001/jama.2016.17383] [DX] in January, found that those who reported using marijuana in the previous month grew from 2.37% in 2002 to 3.85% in 2014. The women were 18 to 44.

Doctors caution that the health effects of marijuana on a fetus remain unclear but could include low birth weight and developmental problems [DOI: 10.1097/CHI.0b013e318160b3f0] [DX], according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Many of the chemicals in marijuana, like tetrahydrocannabinol, known as THC, could pass through a mother's system to her baby. The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that "women who are pregnant or contemplating pregnancy should be encouraged to discontinue marijuana use" and "to discontinue use of marijuana for medicinal purposes in favor of an alternative therapy." Additionally, "there are insufficient data to evaluate the effects of marijuana use on infants during lactation and breastfeeding, and in the absence of such data, marijuana use is discouraged," according to the recommendations.

Tennessee to Jail Women Who Use Drugs while Pregnant 57 comments

USA Today reports that Tennessee has become the first state with legislation that will criminally charge women who use drugs while pregnant with assault for harm done to their infants. Tennessee officials have wrestled with what to do about the growing numbers of infants born dependent on drugs (921 in Tennessee in 2013) and who often suffer from a condition known as neonatal abstinence syndrome. The legislation would allow mothers to avoid criminal charges if they get into one of the state's few treatment programs. Governor Bill Haslam says he wants doctors to encourage women to get into treatment before delivering their babies so they can avoid charges. "The intent of this bill is to give law enforcement and district attorneys a tool to address illicit drug use among pregnant women through treatment programs," says Haslam.

Seventeen states already consider drug use during pregnancy as child abuse and in three of them Minnesota, South Dakota and Wisconsin it is grounds for civil commitment (e.g. forced enrollment in treatment programs). In 15 states, health-care providers are required to report suspected abuse and, in four of those states, they are then also required to test for drug exposure of the child. Eighteen states have treatment programs targeted at pregnant women. Opponents of the bill, including five national medical organizations and local doctors who treat pregnant women, worry that criminalization will scare women away from treatment. "This law separates mothers from their children and is not patient-centered," says Cherisse A. Scott. "Tennessee families who are already being hit the hardest by policies such as the failure to expand Medicaid, poverty and a lack of available drug treatment facilities will be most deeply impacted by this bill."

        Well, you might not, but I am perfectly comfortable with giving other people advise and reasoning with them. Furthermore, when their actions impact another human being, I am more than willing to condone the removal of someone else's autonomy if their actions are deemed harmful to that other human being and the later is not even capable of objecting.

        Your rights to harm people only extent to yourself and those who are both willing and capable of consenting to it. If you harm anyone else, then society has every right to revoke your body autonomy for the purposes of minimizing harm to other human beings, until it is deemed that you will not harm anyone else.

        And on a final note, this story notes that doctors are cautioning women not to, and it absolutely IS their place, not to mention their job, to tell women what to do with their bodies.

          But that's rather the point.
          1. The data is unclear, so there is no direct evidence to believe that it will cause more harm than overdosing on vitamin C.
          2. Women who are going to smoke pot against their doctors' advise aren't going to listen to you, way up there on your high horse.
          3. Given #2, we may as well gather the data from them to remedy #1.

              The other possibility is that women having too much sex and rapes that lead to pregnancies are very low on my list of priorities for the entire country to deal with, because the occurrence of rape leading to pregnancy is not as large or important an issue as the entire country being invaded by more rapists, drug dealers, and criminals, all of whom likely also receive social services, which destroys the country for everyone else and their children. Saving two children is more ethical than saving one. I don't care what you say, or what kind of "corner" you try to push me in: I do not give a fuck about child birth issues, because the majority of pregancies occur during consensual sex as a result of personal irresponsibility, and far more people are affected by other issues which I agree with Trump - Not the Republicans - on. Don't forget that Rs tried their damndest to get him out of their party and utterly failed - his election was a huge middle finger to the establishments of BOTH parties.

              When you see the bigger picture rather than inflating single issues and attempting to virtue-signal and shame others by misrepresenting them you will stop sounding so petty and upset.

                  I don't care if they're having sex with men or women - if they aren't protecting themselves from pregnancy, that is willful negligence. How on earth that is a misogynistic statement is beyond me. When people die in car crashes and were not wearing their seatbelts, it is their responsibility. If someone has unprotected sex leading to an unwanted pregnancy, that is also their responsibility.

    Is that perhaps then not something they should test instead of guess about? Sure it would involve human experiments and the repercussions might be dire. You don't want the fetus to come out as a retarded stoner children. But how else are they going to find out if there is a different if the child is inside or being breastfed on the outside. That said I do seriously doubt they are going to get any such data anytime soon. But it could be interesting; "Hi want to take part in an experiment where you get to smoke weed, under controlled circumstances, for 9 months while you are pregnant?".

    Come to think of it are there any studies of stoner sperm? There probably is. That is after all a lot easier to test then if smoking weed has an effect on a fetus or if you breast feed your infant weed fueled breast milk.

      You could look at reports in which a pregnant woman tested positive / were caught using cannabis, and then track the development of the children. Or ask pregnant women to self-report whether they are currently using cannabis or had done so during pregnancy, and track the development of the children.

      It's not great (when is biomedical science ever?), but possibly better than just forcing some pregnant mice to toke up.

          I guess some other approaches would be to do more statewide studies like these, and then track birth defects, etc. across the state. Or look for any trends specifically in states that have legalized recreational or medical cannabis and compare those states to ones that haven't.

                So you have a few houses you expect are growing...that doesn't prove usage increased unless you also have some measure of how much is being imported/exported. These people might just be displacing stuff previously brought up from Mexico/South America or just from other states. Now that it's legal there wouldn't be much point in trafficking the stuff in. And there's probably a good profit to be made in trafficking the stuff out. Perhaps your state has just moved from a net importer to a net exporter!

                And of course you see more people smoking it in public now that they aren't literally risking their lives in doing so. People have been publicly executed in this country for lesser "crimes". It ain't legal (yet!) in my state, but walk into literally any apartment building and you'll smell it. Plenty of users, but you'll still never see them in public, because that would just be fuckin stupid.

                    I don't disagree with that...I'm just saying it doesn't necessarily mean people in the area are using more. It's entirely possible that the only difference is that they're now growing it locally, and that's what you're smelling.

                    Sounds reasonable. I'm assuming the area is not zoned for agriculture...? :)

                    In a few years I'd expect that to sort itself out though...partly the regulations suck because nobody knows what needs to be regulated yet; and partly it's just a problem of needing to build up the infrastructure for the new market. Eventually these guys should be selling more than they can grow in their house, and they'll find some industrial or agricultural land to buy up and do it there instead. But nobody has the money for that yet, and banks won't do business with them so it's not like they can take out a loan. Although it's also tough to regulate because of the continued unlawful federal prohibition...it's probably a lot easier to raid the warehouse of Mike's Bud Farm LLC compared to the basement of Mike's house, so the problems might not resolve themselves until that goes away...

        That could be an option. Problem might be that they did more then just smoke weed. It would be hard to link it just to the potential weed usage. Self reporting might be an issue to since you'll probably want to know about dosage and strength etc plus if child welfare found out there could be issues.

        Indeed. But the to have some poor mice toke up is probably as close as you get without actual human experiments..

      It's called a "natural experiment", all that is necessary is to gather data (as much as possible, not just on pot usage) --

      A natural experiment is an empirical study in which individuals (or clusters of individuals) exposed to the experimental and control conditions are determined by nature or by other factors outside the control of the investigators, but the process governing the exposures arguably resembles random assignment.

      The quote is the usual scare tactic employed when they don't know didly squat.
      It could just as well read:

      effects of marijuana on a fetus remain unclear but could include calmer babies, fewer tantrums, better infant appetite, etc,
        etc,

      There is a large cadre of kids of stoners and hippies from the 60s through the 80s. I've known some of them, and most are normal, certainly on average no different from any other random group. Wouldn't we know by now?

        There were studies done in the '70's, in Jamaica where people use a lot of marijuana. The findings were that babies exposed to larger amounts of pot as fetuses were born slightly larger. They weren't sure if it was the pot or the subjects selling pot and having a higher standard of living.
        There were quite a few various studies done back in the '70's on marijuana usage, but much of it was repressed as the findings didn't agree with what the politicians wanted to find.

          It's because the babies were born with an unholy case of the munchies and nursed more. And that applied to the third trimester too, meaning the placenta became more efficient at drawing nutrients.

            Yea, that was my thought as I typed the above.
            Unluckily it is hard to find studies from the '70's and I might be mis-remembering dates.
            Here's one from the '94, http://druglibrary.org/schaffer/hemp/medical/can-babies.htm [druglibrary.org] which shows no differences at 3 days and at 1 month, to quote,

            At 1 month, the exposed neonates showed better physiological stability and required less examiner facilitation to reach organized states. The neonates of heavy-marijuana-using mothers had better scores on autonomic stability, quality of alertness, irritability, and self-regulation and were judged to be more rewarding for caregivers.

            With the conclusion that it was mostly,

            traceable to the cultural positioning and social and economic characteristics of mothers using marijuana that select for the use of marijuana but also promote neonatal development.

            An article about a study from the '80's, https://herb.co/2016/03/02/jamaican-study-gives-surprising-insight-into-cannabis-pregnancy/ [herb.co] which seemed to conclude that mellow mothers raised better children whether using pot or not.

        Have you considered that the "old fucks" of "ShitStainNews" may posses precognitive abilities that would enable them to pre-moderate your comments based on prior knowledge that you are an obnoxious retard? Do you think it possible that your stupid comments are all the evidence needed for unilateral support for in-utero cannabinoids? Glad your hypothesis worked out for you!
