In California, amazingly stupid pregnant women are smoking more pot these days, according to a new Kaiser Permanente study, and as California embraces recreational marijuana in 2018, experts are concerned the trend may continue.

“It’s definitely something we see,” said Dr. Amelia McLennan, an OB-GYN at UC Davis Medical Center. “It’s usually among younger patients, but really it’s across the board. Unlike tobacco and alcohol, people don’t feel like pot is at the same level in terms of risk.”

According to the Sacramento Bee, from 2009 to 2016, marijuana use among pregnant women increased from 4.2 percent to 7.1 percent in Kaiser Permanente’s Northern California healthcare system.

But the biggest jump according to the study was among those 24 and younger, especially teens. Nineteen percent of women 18 to 24, and 22 percent of teen moms screened positive for marijuana at eight weeks gestation.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, marijuana use by pregnant women can lead to health problems in infants such as low birth weight and developmental issues.

  1. This is the paradox here in Kaly.. The demoRats have had a war on tabacco for decades.. However.. when it come to Reefer, these same crusaders have turned into Reefer advocates and are pushing this drug on the population with wild abandon.. Smoking tabacco BAD… Reefer … GOOD.. go figure !!!
    In afew days you are going to see this same age grp lose ALL control and we are going to be seeing Spring Break type parties and smtoned out opf theirmind drivers at a much higher rate than before this crap was legalized… Expect mayhem and REEFER MADNESS.
