Researchers Are Studying The Effects Of Cannabis On Pregnancy

According to Business Insider, researchers at the University of Washington are recruiting pregnant women to participate in a study designed to measure the effects marijuana use has on their future children. The researchers will follow women who use marijuana frequently during pregnancy and those who don’t use the substance at all, from pregnancy through birth. Participants will meet with researchers three times during their pregnancies to answer questions about their cannabis use, symptoms like nausea and vomiting, and changes in mood. After the study participants give birth, researchers will conduct MRI screenings of the babies’ brains at six months old to see if cannabis use had any effect on their cognitive development.
