Surgeon General Warns Against Marijuana Use Among Pregnant Women, Teens

August 29, 2019

(UPI) – The surgeon general warned pregnant women and teens today that smoking marijuana can have dangerous effects on development, in the womb and during adolescence. Based on a raft of recent data suggesting that youths and young adults “widely” use marijuana, and that pregnant women are increasingly using it to counter nausea and other conditions, U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams issued a warning Thursday to reiterate the health risks of either group using the substance.
