do not list pregnancy-related conditions among allowed uses. But the laws also dont prohibit that use and dont include warnings about possible harms to the fetus, she said. Strong evidence of harms is limited, but besides low birth weights, newborns whose mothers used marijuana while pregnant may face increased risks for anemia and other problems requiring intensive care. Memory and attention problems also been found in older children whose moms used marijuana in pregnancy, Volkow noted. How marijuana might lead to those problems is unclear but Volkow said one theory is that it might interfere with formation of nerve cells and circuits in the brain during fetal development. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists discourages marijuana use by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Both studies analyzed data from annual U.S. government surveys on drug use that are based on participants self-reporting. One focused on 200,510 women of reproductive age who participated in the 2002-2014 surveys.

That's based on follow-up with 11 study participants. Further work showed they're a motherhood thing: No brain changes were seen in first-time fathers. The women showed no declines on tests of memory. Based on prior research findings, the researchers think the brain changes happened during pregnancy rather than after childbirth. What's going on? Hoekzema and colleagues think the differences result from sex hormones that flood the brain of a pregnant woman. In the 11 places, the MRI data indicate reductions in volume of the brain's gray matter, but it's not clear what that means. For example, it could reflect loss of brain cells or a pruning of the places where brain cells communicate, called synapses. Losing some synapses is not necessarily a bad thing. It happens during a hormonal surge in adolescence, producing more specialized and efficient brain circuits.
