I smoked in college, like over 6 years ago. Smoking while pregnant isn't for me.

I think it should be used like any other medication in pregnancy. VERY CAFEFULLY. It has been studied in pregnancy but NOT alot so its not something I would choose to use(during pregnancy)

I am all for the legalization of weed, but I think it's as irresponsible to smoke weed during pregnancy as it is to drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes. It is her body and ultimately her choice, but not something I would ever do.

 include a poll and you may get more truth....moms aren't going to admit to it and risk getting bashed. I know people that have smoked pot while pregnant and their kids seem really smart too....hmmm who knows

In moderation.I wouldnt do it.I had a friend that smoked alot when she was pregnant her kid is slow as hell.He wouldnt even cry as a baby when he was hungry or needed a new diaper.Now that he is older he is way behind where he needs to be,has speech problems,withdrawn and has a hard time reading social clues or making a connection with any one,even his mom.Hes been tested for every thing and the doctors found nothing,except a learning disability.I think its due to all the weed she smoked.She smoked a lot

If it helps-more power to 'em. My sister did this as well & my niece is VERY smart;makes me sick lol. I haven't read enough about smoking while pregnant to give an actual opinion.

Pretty much like any other drug, prescription or otherwise, has been studied in pregnancy. Not many people are going to step up and volunteer to be tested. BUT there are people who choose to/ HAVE to use drugs(prescription or otherwise) anyway, they try to take these into account and see the effects.
