Study To Find Pots Effects On The Unborn

marijuana-leaf-300Researchers at the University of Colorado are planning to study the effects marijuana use has on pregnant women. The Denver Post reported that Doctor Torri Metz, a high-risk obstetrician, will develop a questionnaire for new mothers about their use of marijuana. She says half of the previous studies that have been done show a correlation between marijuana use and fetal health issues, while the other half have shown that there is no correlation. University officials say more studies are needed on the association between marijuana use and fetal growth restriction, high blood pressure in pregnant mothers, stillbirth, spontaneous pre-term birth and other
conditions.
