Hello and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Smoking weed is not recommended during pregnancy as it can potentially impact a developing baby’s health. These may include: low birth weight, premature birth, small head circumference, small length and stillbirth. After birth, a child whose mother used weed during pregnancy may have trouble with memory, attention, controlling impulses and school performance. Hence, it is recommended strictly not to use weed during pregnancy and lactation.

Hope the information provided helps. All the best.

Regards,

Dr. Ashakiran. S

Hi, i found out I was pregnant at 6 weeks and I was smoking weed before I found out. I quit but then it became an off and on thing and I ll smoke once or twice every blue moon. I did finally stop for good a few days before I hit 6 months pregnant. Is there a chance that the weed can still show up in my baby s system? I did truly stop, but I m hearing they test the baby when they are born. Plz someone provide an accurate answer

hi, I smoked pot recently and then felt sick and sleepy, I was yawning every few seconds and I couldn´t keep my eyes open. I also sweated hard and couldn´t move, I could hardly move my tongue to say a few words. It took some 15 minutes or so. Are these normal side effects of smoking weed? Thank you for your answer. (I am 32)

I believe that my weed had been laced with crystal meth and would like to know the symptoms . Last I smoked was about a day and a half ago.Since then it s been hard to sleep because I ve been scared for my life thinking that people and cops are following me because they want to hurt me. I am not seeing or hearing things because I would ask people if they seen or heard that and they would but I d say, just wondering ,when they asked why. My dad took a look at the weed I smoked, it was ruled in swisher wraps. When my dad took the weed out,it was dark outside but had it under a light he found shiny stuff , in it.And I was not getting my weed from a Medical Club.
