Smoking anything is bad. Stop now.

Im all for marijuana, but they can easily test you and have CPS involved once your LO is here. Do you really want to chance that? The doctor can not see if your child is 100 percent healthy.

I'd also look up your laws. You can go to jail or pay a pretty hefty fine for even being caught we a joint here.big jail time mandatory for a second offence...and that is your whole record screwed, too. Start being responsible now.

I woulndt risk smoking anything unless if you want your baby taken away. Doctors can report if a mother is using street drugs.

Like seven months ago. I don't really get the question, why would you wait? You should have stopped when you found out but now is better than another month from now.

If it's so bad, then why are women in California prescribed it while pregnant to help with back pain? Guess everyone has their own oppinions. I wasn't looking to be lectured.. just asking for advice

You should've stopped like... months ago.

My daughter was deemed healthy my entire pregnancy. 2nd day of life she started having an irregular heart beat and was placed on monitors for the entire night.. along with an EKG which showed something that we have to see a cardiologist about in a week. And I didn't smoke, drink, do drugs, etc., the entire pregnancy. So please don't think that just because your doctor says your LO is healthy, that doesn't mean they are. And you should be taking every precaution to ensure they're healthy.. aka, not smoking weed.

BTW, my hospital tested a segment of baby's cord for drugs when she was born.. I had no say in it. Not sure what would've happened if they found any drugs in mine and baby's system.. I probably would've had a visit from CPS. Just a heads up.

Are you in California? Were you prescribed it?

Those women also probably eat or vape it. You're smoking it. Which is awful. Nothing should be smoked while pregnant. Ingesting it is another story.

Is it prescribed and did your OB prescribe it? 


If not then I'd advise you to stop while you're at it.

Thats if you get a doctors note and buy it from a person who only deals with pure medical grade. Buying it off the street can be even more dangerous because those drugs could be laced with other drugs

I'm sure they bake or vape, not smoke. Smoking is terrible.

What I don't get is... You've been smoking it the entire time, why ask when you should stop NOW when you're almost due....
