While many people would agree that it’s bad to smoke tobacco while pregnant, there are mixed perceptions about using cannabis.
Washington State University researchers are trying to figure out why, along with studying other cannabis-related issues.
Dr. Maria Gartstein leads the Infant Temperament lab at WSU and is co-leading two studies into marijuana use. One study will examine the thoughts and beliefs about risks or benefits of cannabis use during pregnancy and soon after giving birth. Participants will take part in an hour-long interview as part of that study.
