i've been there. i feel ya. my point is pot isn't the only option out there to help, ykwim? plus, this thread isn't about smoking a bowl when the sickness is upon you...it's about whether or not getting high is a big deal or not while being pg. in my opinion, people will either agree or disagree with whether it's okay or not. i'm in the *not* camp.

I agree, although I am an recreational as well as medicinal user, I know that there are other options out there. Pot worked for me, and I trusted it, bc it has worked for me since I started using(not just smoking) it almost 9 years ago. It just seemed to me like you don't think anyone should do it. I think it's about what it all boils down to for you, and it's not for you! I can respect that.

None of the ideas expressed above are actually mine. They are told to me by Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.shine.gif

I'm shocked there is even debate here.

Of COURSE smoking pot while pregnant is NOT ok. I would think especially on a natural family living site this would be condemned.

No drugs for labor, but LIGHT that bowl during pregnancy! Makes a lot of sense.

okay i read it. 1 death per country? and no details as to what was associated with it other than vomiting? do you think smoking pot would have changed the outcome of those women?

Since I have not seen any studies or heard of anecdotal stories that show that pot is detrimental while pregnant, it's hard for me to get up in arms about it.

For those of you that think it's bad, even in small doses. Why? I don't get it.

But pot is safe and works best for many women, so why wouldn't people use something safe that works well?

pot is exactly that. natural family living. formula feeding isn't natural but it's not condemned on MDC, is it?

because there is a stereotype and stigma attached to everything, and it projects an unwanted image, i suppose. Some people just take pot for more than it is, which is.....drumroll.....just a plant. just like every other plant.

I don't believe a word of the bible, but here's my best shot at it :

"Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things." (Genesis 9:3).

Smoking ANYTHING is detrimental during pregnancy.

The Dangers of Marijuana Use

As with other drugs, such as alcohol and tobacco, the chemicals found in marijuana enter the baby's body directly when a woman smokes during pregnancy or while breast-feeding, causing toxic effects in the baby. In addition, marijuana use among pregnant women increases the mother's heart rate and blood pressure, which in turn reduces the rate of blood flow to the baby.

Women who smoke marijuana during pregnancy are likely to have babies who are born prematurely and small for their age. Marijuana-exposed babies often experience behavioral problems, central nervous system disorders, tremors and jitters. In addition, they are often difficult to comfort.

okay. here's my thought. you all will disagree ...otherwise you wouldn't smoke pot while pg, right?

i believe it is not in the best interest of the baby.

i'm not going to type 10 supporting paragraphs about it. those are my thoughts. i honestly believe that. based on what? you ask. i've been high many times. pot effects the way i feel and think. i believe it will have the same effect on my child inside me. i don't want that for a baby. you don't have to agree with me. i don't have to agree with you. right?

No it isnt. And if you read many of the posts above many MJ users will say they use vaporizers (so none of the toxins in the smoke) or cook with it in order to have the same affect.

Im NOT trying to sway you, nor are you me...but what i REALLY dont understand, and am REALLY looking for someone to explain to me is its totally fine if you dont think its best for baby - but there are TONS of things that women do everyday that arent in the best interest of the baby. I have mentioned caffeine, sugar, hydrogenated oils, not enough exercise, not eating a balanced diet, dehydration...etc..etc...Im really wondering where the line is for people about what things are acceptable even though it isnt in the best interest of the baby.

I believe that in some interests it is...and smoking pot during pregnancy is something I will not do - ever. However, in certain cases, such as the severe kind of morning sickness, I certainly believe it's in the best interests of the baby. In other cases...I've seen nothing to convince me that it's not in the best interests of the baby. Sure, it's possible that pot isn't good for babies (although I've never seen anything documented that says this)...but maternal stress, insomnia, excessive vomiting, etc. aren't good for the baby, either. Sometimes, one has to weigh risks...and the risks of pot use don't necessarily trump all others, just because it's illegal, not socially sanctioned and acts as a drug.

As someone who has come to hate pot with a passion, and as someone who has never suffered from morning sickness, it's very easy for me to state that I will never, ever smoke pot during pregnancy. I've never been in a position where it's quite possibly the best thing I could do - but that doesn't mean that position doesn't exist.

"Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things." (Genesis 9:3).
I don't smoke every other plant with the intention to get high. Just like (when I'm not pregnant) I don't drink a glass of an alcoholic beverage to get DRUNK. Wine is 'natural'. I'm not downing that during pregnancy either because I'm stressed out.

I hate to break this to you, but I"m not some anti-drug pot is the devil over-reactor here. I've smoked pot, many, many, many times. Then I got married and got pregnant and....drum roll please....GREW UP. My "stoner" days are long gone.

I'd encourage those of you who seem to be addicted to this to seek help. I understand addiction. I understand trying to justify continuing that addiction despite KNOWING that you shouldn't. Just because pot isn't as physically addictive as cigarettes doesn't mean you can't be addicted. Get help. Really. Your kids need you sober and clear headed to make the best decisions for them.

I'm not speaking of someone with severe hyperemesis, either. I think that its clear most people would say that if it was between being hospitalized on iv's and being malnourished, and smoking pot...one would pick smoking pot. I'm not sure that situations actually exists with the medications available for nausea these days, but for argument's sake, we'll assume it does.

ok. i am seriously going to peel my fingers away in 1 minute, lol. this is a good thread!!!

this thread isn't asking about rare instances that pot could benefit mom. and your response implies that no other alternatives exist....it's like either mom is vomiting and has insomnia or she can smoke pot for relief. why is it a big deal that i believe other alternatives exist outside of "this or that".

yea, i've seen this several times being pointed out. but i'm not arguing that it's all okay and pot's not. i've never implied that.

Exactly, I have my thoughts and you have yours, and we can agree to disagree, and the world is a better place! I'm such a hippie!

If its only occasionally though, what's the big deal to NOT do it for 9 months? Really?

Addiction, I can understand. Medical necessity, I can understand.

Just occasionally wanting to get stoned? Selfish B.S. that makes me wonder what kind of a parent these people are really going to be.

Do you think someone that has a small glass of wine a few times during their pregnancy is a selfish person who you wonder about, too?
