As in my knowledge a large number of states legalize marijuana, the number of pregnant women who smoke marijuana is increasing somewhat — and no doubt this could be truly bad for developing infants.
In 2010, 3.30% of pregnant women used marijuana. In 2015, that number was up to 7.90%, an increase of approximately two-thirds. Let’s see this is the worst situations, the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in marijuana has four times more. Whether, THC is the active ingredient in marijuana, the chemical that gives a rising tone.
Nobody can know all the side effects of THC on babies, but we know enough that the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has announced a statement warning pregnant women.
Actually the situation is. THC can easily go through into the bloodstream and through the placenta of a developing baby.
