Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hi,
Thanks for writing in to us.

Although it is her choice and you can't usually make people see reason in these things, maybe someone should inform her that the chemical make-up of "spice" and other legal smokable drugs like it is probably extremely bad for her baby. Worse even than cigarettes or if she had just continued to smoke weed. Spice is completely unnatural (made of mostly man-made chemicals) and has been involved in many deaths over the past few years. It is more dangerous to smoke spice or other weed alternatives than it is to smoke weed itself. People who have smoked it have had seizures and severe breathing problems.

Hope this helps
