If the child cannot conform by the time they become an adult, they should be moved directly to a private prison work camp where they can help support society through labor, until such time as they earn their freedom and citizenship.
Have no family or church?

Oh please, tell me you're being sarcastic. This area doesn't need any more fascists.

I am almost 8 months pregnant. Before I got pregnant I was a regular marijuana smoker and an advocate for medical marijuana. All through my pregnancy I have been very sick come to find out I have hyperemisis gravidarum, my doctors tried me on numerous anti-nausea medications, and only zophran works, unfortunately medicaid only pays for 12 of these a month. It takes at least one a day to allow me to keep food down. Being a pre-pregnancy smoker I knew the benefits of smoking marijuana included helping nausea and to keep food down. I started smoking again while I'm pregnant to help keep food down. It is honestly the ONLY thing I can do to keep food down and not be in the hospital. I am aware that it is illegal and my defenses won't matter, but if marijuana were legal, my doctor would have prescribed it saying that the benefits outweighted the risks (much like my doctor said when he attempted to put me on Zoloft).

Yes, they do drug test babies at birth. Yes, there is a chance I won't get to take my baby home with me. And NO, it's not right. I understand doing a DRUG but I strongly feel that marijuana should not be considered a substance that will have your baby taken from you. It's not a drug, it is a herb.

Thank you for posting this. As an OB nurse...i plan on having your IP traced, and using this against you in about a month when we contact Child Protective Services. If you were smart enough to tell your doctor that you couldnt afford ZOFRAN, he would have given you samples (after laughing at you for admitting to buying marijuana instead). You just admitted that you know you could get your baby taken away...but you still smoke weed. I would rather puke my ever living guts up for 9 months than potentially lose my baby. I am truly mortified by not only your pure ignorance, but your total selfishness.

I all the crack/pill/meth whores would stop popping out addicted babies they wouldn't have to test the poor little things. If you are a female and want to ruin your life with drugs, then have your tubes tied....oh that would never happen because the Government won't pay for it and Lord knows these scumbags won't pay out of their own pocket.They use all their money, and alot of ours, on drugs,cigs,booze and bail.

I feel so sorry for your poor child. Poor baby has a mother that can handle life so she addicts her baby to marijuana before it's even born. I hope the they take that baby away and you never see it. After you have that baby make sure they tie your tubes so you don't do this to another innocent baby . I'm just disgusted right now and can't believe mother that cared anything for their child would do something like this.

Reminds me of the film "The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia." If you haven't seen it, it's a must see.(It's on Netflix as an instant watch.) It's probably the saddest and most disgusting film I've ever watched.

In one part, this pillwhore gives birth to the most beautiful baby girl. Within hours, she and another woman are filmed crushing and snorting pills right there in the hospital room with the baby just feet away. The Whites are very proud of their lifestyle and have fans from all over the country. It's unreal.

Why not ask your doctor to prescribe marinol? Same active ingredient as marijuana, but legal. And like smoking cigarettes, smoking pot during your pregnancy puts your child at risk. If you choose to use it, fine, but you should be responsible enough to stop during pregnancy.

"Medical Marijuana"? Just an excuse to get high! Do you have any idea how many people die from marijuana overdoses every year, or how many pot-babies are born addicted to marijuana? Ask the ATF about the "medical" uses of marijuana! If it had any medical value, then why is it scheduled as more addictive and less medically useful than heroin?
You would be better off getting drunk every day, or shooting up heroin during this pregnancy than abusing marijuana! Oxys are healthier for your newborn than what you are doing! I hope you die during childbirth, and I pray your child survives the horrific DT's you are condemning it to! You are a worthless piece of trash!

my mom smoked pot with all her kids we are just fine. I know several people who smoked through their whole pregnancy and their kids are fine also. They have not proven it does anything, personally i would not do that to my child but do not see a problem if others choose to.

Wow, this is the most ridiculous thing that I have ever heard. You are comparing pot to oxy's.....really??? Please, by all means dear wise one, how many peopl have you known in your lifetime to die from a pot overdose? And you have the audacity to say that heroin is better for a pregnant woman? Seems to me you should lay off of the crack pipe yourself dear. I may not smoke pot, but I do have friends that do, and I can tell you one thing, I would 10 times over rather hang out with them rather than any drunk, pill head or needle junkie. As far as the smoking while you are pregnant, that is a ballsy thing to do. Some babies come out ok without any side effects, but I wouldn't recommend smoking while you are pregnant regardless.

YES! The baby would be born addicted to pot, and could even die from withdrawal!
Pot is SCHEDULE ONE! That means that, from careful scientific and medical study, and congressional panel examination, it has been found to be EQUALLY AS addictive as schedule 1 heroin and oxy,and more deadly than schedule 2 crack cocaine!
Your "friend" is a pathetic failure at life, and you should feel ashamed for acknowledging her existence!
Crack babies are born healthier!
I don't believe in abortion, but in this case, it might be humanitarian to end the pathetic creature's suffering before the worst possible ending!
I pray that your "friend" realizes that while she is powerless to her addiction, she can turn her life over to Jesus Christ, the only one who has the higher power to help her!

I think that testing for hard substances like meth, opiates and the like are vital to a baby's overall well being but not testing for THC. There have been no links to birth defects and the THC compound its self (but the smoke from using this drug via smoke inhalation is another story). I know that in Texas, women can get in a lot of trouble for even showing to an appointment and peeing dirty for pot...some women can not eat with out it much like many cancer patients. I know my mother lost weight and couldn't even keep water down the first 4 months until she smoked and it worked like a charm. I am smart, well adjusted, not a drug abuser my self, going to school and happy. Although, I do like cake an awful lot so there is that possible side affect.
