Study says more pregnant women are smoking marijuana for morning sickness

Marijuana Use by Pregnant Women Is on the in California

In 2009, only about four percent of pregnant women were using marijuana.

There is also a notable uptick from 12.5 percent to 21.8 percent in the use of marijuana among pregnant Californian teens younger than 18, the researchers found.

Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug during pregnancy, and its use is increasing, according to a letter published Tuesday in the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA).

Pennsylvania woman gets $284 billion electric bill
She thought maybe her Christmas lights had done something wacky because her bill was more than $284 billion . The bill had to be paid in full by November 2018 and the first payment for December 2017 was $28,156.

The data come from toxicology reports and a combination of self-reports in which pregnant females say they have used marijuana and positive toxicology reports.

That officer was injured "either by direct or indirect gunfire" and was taken to a hospital in stable condition, authorities said. Police searched the property and eventually found an 11-year-old boy and a 10-month-old girl dead, according to AZFamily.com .

The researcher said the amount of marijuana consumed and how often a person uses it is a factor.

For other age groups, the researchers found that marijuana use rose from 3.4% to 5.1% among women 25 to 34 and from 2.1% to 3.3% among women older than 34. However, there is insufficient data on link between marijuana use and fetal development.

One expert said the rise may be attributed to the increased availability of legal marijuana in recent years. The study adds that prenatal use may increase even more in 2018, after recreational use of marijuana is set to become legal in California.

"Think about marijuana use from [the study participants'] perspective, especially in Northern California", said Dr. Robyn Horsager-Boehrer, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Texas, who was not involved in the study. However, on a federal level, it is still illegal to possess, use, buy, sell, or cultivate marijuana.
