New warning to pregnant women, nursing mothers: Stay off marijuana

A new report from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is cautioning pregnant women and nursing mothers to avoid marijuana due to possible adverse developmental affects in children.

The report, published recently in the journal Pediatrics, is also a call for more research into the effects of marijuana on fetal and child growth and development, and a warning about the reservations that have already been raised.
