Cannabis use during pregnancy

Petrangelo, Adriano, et al. "Cannabis Abuse or Dependence During Pregnancy: A Population-Based Cohort Study on 12 Million Births." Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Canada(2018).

Over 12 million births in the US were analyzed to identify pregnant women who use cannabis and to assess obstetric and neonatal outcomes. The results showed that the incidence of cannabis dependence in 2013 is two-times more than in 1999 and that cannabis use is associated with adverse outcomes such as preterm labor, lower birth weight and longer hospital stay. Though other variables may have confounded these results, it is still worthwhile taking them into consideration to ensure the safety of expecting mothers and their offspring.
