Disclaimer: I am not pregnant, nor do I intend to be any time soon. This is not medical advice, nor would I need this question answered if I were impregnated.
I would like to explain to someone very clearly and concisely why she should not smoke pot while she is pregnant. I know it’s a terrible, selfish thing to do, but I want the cites to back it up. “It’s just bad, that’s why” doesn’t seem to be doing the trick. What are some specific possible or definite consequences of regular consumption of marijuana to a fetus/embryo/zygote? Opinions on the moral character of a person who would do such a thing should be minimized, please. I think we can all agree that this is a BAD THING to do. But why, exactly?
