In news that I'm guessing won't shock anyone, researchers have found that smoking pot during pregnancy may impair your baby's growth and development in the womb. Shocking right.

smoking-pot-during-pregnancy Up til now there's been little conclusive research done specifically about pot during pregnancy, however, plenty of research has been compiled about the dangers of smoking cigarettes, which should have tipped everyone off that smoking, no matter what sort of herb you're puffing, is not a good idea, especially during pregnancy. That said, the new research notes that pot specifically appears to have negative effects over and above those of tobacco. The researchers found marijuana smokers gave birth to smaller babies (typically up to five - ten oz. lighter babies) then women who didn't smoke marijuana during pregnancy. Babies of mamas who smoked pot throughout a pregnancy, rather than just during early pregnancy fared worse. particularly those who had used throughout pregnancy. The findings suggest that marijuana use, "even restricted to early pregnancy, may have irreversible effects on fetal growth" and women should quit smoking pot well before they even consider pregnancy. *Source
