A study of mothers-to-be in California found an increase in marijuana use especially among younger women.
The study notes that marijuana is "the most commonly used illicit drug during pregnancy", adding that use of the drug has been increasing. From 2002 to 2014, the prevalence of self-reported, past-month marijuana use among United States adult pregnant women increased from 2.4% to 3.9%. According to the research published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, "the prevalence of self-reported, past-month marijuana use among U.S. adult pregnant women increased from 2.4 percent to 3.9 percent".
"Pregnant women or women contemplating pregnancy should be encouraged to discontinue use of marijuana for medicinal purposes in favor of an alternative therapy for which there are better pregnancy-specific safety data".
The legalization of marijuana may have contributed to the increase in use found by the study, KABC reported. The women were treated at Kaiser Permanente facilities that had screening for marijuana use as part of standard prenatal care. However, there is insufficient data on link between marijuana use and fetal development.
