I don't, but wouldn't judge a woman who did. I have only ever heard that it doesn't cross into the milk in any real amounts.

I would hope that no one smokes *around* a baby/child (not a fan of smoke in children's lungs, of any type) and that mama is responsible with her use when the children are relying on her to care for them and keep them safe.

I also would hope that if the mj is for self-medication purposes that it is really evaluated by the mama as the appropriate treatment. For instance, if there is a mental health issue that the mj is helping with, to be sure that it is really helping and not doing more harm than good. (I've seen mj help with mental health issues in ways that prescription meds failed miserably ... I've also seen it make problems worse.)
