Uses for medical marijuana
Just because marijuana is legal in some areas160;for medical or recreational use for those ages 21 and above, that doesn't mean it's safe―especially for children exposed to it prenatally or while breastfeeding. There's just too much we don't know about the ways it might affect children. But the researchers say it does show that the narrative of "marijuana is dangerous in pregnancy" is often oversimplified, which can stigmatize, and sometimes seriously penalize, women. There are also risks to the pregnant Continue mother resulting from the use of marijuana. It can cause decreased blood pressure and increased heart rate, leading to dizziness and falls. Marijuana use can also increase the risk of anemia, confusion and forgetfulness during pregnancy.
