detoxing drinks during pregnancy??

Are the drug detoxing or even just reg cleansing drinks ok during pregnancy? Or is there any way (other then water or cranberry) that you can detox your system faster for weed?

  • Neither of those sound like a very good idea... but more importantly, why the hell are you smoking weed while pregnant?

  • Weed? Are you saying your pregnant, smoking weed & now need to get the evidence out of you?

  • Too late. You've already contaminated the baby.

  • I don't think she's worried about "contaminating the baby" she just doesn't want to get caught in her piss test. Very sad.

  • I agree if you are pregnant wtf are you doing smoking weed? And how can you not be ashamed of yourself... I guess anon 06 is right you arent worried about the baby only about getting caught. But you have already endangered the baby and a detox drink will make it worse..

  • The detox drink could have a laxative effect on the baby and you risk mecomium release in the womb. Most detox drinks are very hard on the liver and kidneys and bowels. It could strain the baby's kidneys and liver as well, dump many toxins into the baby, and cause fetal distress.

    Those detox drinks don't just detox for THC (and most of them don't work well at that). They detox most of the water soluble things in your system. You could end up very dehydrated. This could lead to low amniotic fluid.

  • you people are so rude and misinformed, smoking weed while pregnant has no effects on the baby till the last 3 months you jerks learn your facts before you talk crap to someone. and in fact now they are proscribing it to pregnant women in cali for all kinds of things. quit tryingh to act all high and mighty like you all know everything when in fact if you ask a real dr if its safe they will tell you it does not harm your baby in any way
