Changing Attitudes Complicate Discussions Around Marijuana Use During Pregnancy

< Back to All Resources

An article in the May 29, 2017 issue of Alcoholism & Drug Abuse Weekly provides a preview of a soon-to-be-published journal article on the complexities of marijuana use in pregnancy. A complicated body of research, policy changes, and ambivalent provider attitudes have led to some health care providers' reluctance to address marijuana use with pregnant patients. The full journal article, "Cannabis and Pregnancy: Maternal Child Health Implications During a Period of Drug Policy Liberalization," co-authored by Mishka Terplan, MD, MPH and Katrina Mark, MD, will be published in Preventive Medicine.
