Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
Smoking marijuana during pregnancy can lead to side effects like low birth weight baby, baby with lower IQ, behavioral problems, difficulties in language comprehension, memory problems, poor growth, physical abnormalities, increased risk to get leukemia etc.
So better to avoid marijuana during pregnancy.
