lol @ AverysMom and I'm right there wit cha!
dd#1- NO USE OF POT, nothing, not even a cup of coffee: Full term, 8'10", very healthy and very smart. However, she's got serious mental issues. (genetic mental illness on both sides) No real artistic talent, creative in a utilitarian way, not compassionate. She's 20.
dd#2- first trimester use for nausea. (was also on SSRI
) 2 weeks early, 6'8", very healthy, smart, born with a heart murmur, (gone now) which could be the SSRI's or could have been "normal". I 100% do NOT think it was the pot. Super compassionate & creative. She's 11.
dd#3- mostly daily use throughout pg. Water broke @ 31 weeks, didn't deliver until 35 weeks, healthy 5lb. baby. Smart, happy, meeting milestones. Very observant and inquisitive. She's a signer & EC'r, Just started walking this week and finally got her top two teeth (her only two
) She's 14 mos.
What have I decided from all of this?
Not much about why bad things happen to good people (or vice versa) or why people LOVE to blame some things and not others somewhat predictably where the $'s flow.
MJ is GOOD. VERY GOOD.
Smoking is bad... VERY BAD.
I do not believe that THC is an unhealthy or dangerous drug, nor do I believe that the PLANT caused any "problems" for me or my children.
I would use MJ again while pg if I seemed to need it or want it. I would definitely BURN it less, even though I am "unsure" if it had anything to do with my water rupturing at 31 weeks.
There were/are other high factors on the list of "causes" that I can't deny.
I definitely believe it is medicinal and obviously a gift of nature that is ridiculously regulated by people who don't belong there. I have to remember that these lawmakers are the same ones that tell me I can't collect rainwater on my property for my own use.
I have lots of opinions about it, but I won't do it... you asked not for that.
