Introduction • There is a paucity of data regarding extent and patterns of marijuana use in pregnancy. • Nausea, sleep problems, anxiety are commonly reported reasons for use (Kaarid, 2021) • Marijuana use in pregnancy is associated with increased risk for neonates of preterm delivery, NICU admission, small for gestational age, and lower 1min APGAR scores (Marchand, 2022) • Knowledge of reasons and patterns of marijuana use is important to properly counsel patients, identify patients at risk for use during pregnancy and to offer alternative therapies that are safer during pregnancy.
