Marijuana Use Increasing Among Pregnant Women

A study from the medical journal JAMA has revealed that more pregnant women are using marijuana, especially in the first trimester.

The percentage of pregnant women using marijuana increased from 3.4% in 2002 to 7% in 2017. Pregnant women also consistently reported more medical marijuana use in the first trimester than in later trimesters.

The CDC states that most birth defects occur in the first trimester when organs are still forming. According to the study, the effects of marijuana on fetal growth could be “more pronounced in women who consume marijuana frequently, especially in first and second trimesters.”
