Why do people smoke weed while pregnant?

IU know it is none of my business but I just found out that my niece who is almost 8 mths pregnant is still smoking weed. I walked in on her smoking it.(that is how I know she is still smoking it). I told her the effects if can have but she does not care & says she will continue to smoke it.

  • It can help with morning sickness. I smoked several times with my first pregnancy. Not regularly and I can't say I am proud that I did it, but it is what it is. My son is perfectly normal and healthy, but smoking daily towards the end is not really good.

  • I didn't. Its hard to stop but you don't want your babys to come out with something wrong with them! Its only 9 months then you can go back to being a pot head!

  • REALLY? i smoked weed pregnant with all 4 of my children. 2 of them are in a school for the gifted and the other 2 are perfectly normal. why? because i ate healthy, i didn't take any medications, and i work with them. don't judge what you know nothing about. when filtered through water, marijuana has no negative effects on the body whatsoever!

  • It's really not all that harmful to the baby. I've known plenty of people who did it and the babies are happy, healthy, and a little above average intelligence. I've never actually heard of babies coming out addicted to it or being any worse off for having had it. I dunno it's controversial I know, but really don't think it's that bad. The chemicals you eat in hamburger helper are probably worse for the growing fetus than a little pot smoke here and there.
