Abstract:

It is quite apparent that in our current society, pregnant and breastfeeding women do use and ingest recreational substances (in both a wisely manner and unwisely manner) and drugs of abuse, natural and/or synthetic. Marijuana use is of special concern currently, especially considering the ethical and legal concerns of its use. The objectives of this presentation are to effectively evaluate recreational drug use during breastfeeding and pregnancy; to counsel mothers who are pregnant or breastfeeding and using recreational drugs, including marijuana; and to discuss and address ethical concerns regarding marijuana use.
