With the increasing number of states passing or considering medical marijuana laws and the legalization of marijuana in some states, an important question arises: What responsibility does the public health system have in educating the public about the impact of marijuana on pregnancy and establishing guidelines for the prescription of marijuana to women of child bearing age and pregnant women?  The purpose of this webinar is not to discuss the pros and cons of the legalization of marijuana use, the pros and cons of medical marijuana prescriptions, punitive measures regarding substance use during pregnancy, or a woman’s right to make choices for her own pregnancy. The purpose of this presentation is to frame and discuss the narrow question of medical marijuana laws and the public health response for pregnant women and women of child bearing age.
