    The article goes a long way in refuting the very idea of banning it. It actually provides studies showing children were better off with mothers that smoke rather than not.

    There are a lot of things that pregnant women shouldn't consume, so how is this relevant to decriminalization?

    My sister showed me that study during her last pregnancy.
    One day well realize that mother nature provided us with some very good medicine, that natural sources can be very beneficial, that things like pot and shrooms are better than lab-cooked anti-depressants and anti-anxieties (and they don't have potential addiction and with drawel, a lack of the wicked side-effects, and it seems fewer people have side-effects with the natural stuff), and that we have been lied to, very severely, about pot.

    The entire point of this study is that it has positive benefits when a woman consumes it during pregnancy. That is relevant to decriminalization because it needs to be a legal option for the women during pregnancy.

    I think if any woman doesn't do the right thing throughout their pregnancy, then they don't deserve to have a baby, no way what so ever.

    Do you believe a woman smoking Marijuana during her pregnancy is the wrong thing to do? What do you think of the study that suggests it is beneficial?

    I think your study is just what you want to hear, its always the same, pot smokers will support anything that is supporting of their stupid happit, I have been there, I know.

    Careful, it isn't my study. I also didn't have any expectations coming into this discussion. I simply asked your opinion of the article and the conclusion.

    Admittedly, I hadn't read the article and had presumed that it was just another propaganda piece trying to scrape together more reasons why cannabis is a scourge upon society.

    My bad, yo. Bro.

    "Cannabis as a subject triggers a negative emotional response in me, therefore any scientific data regarding it is invalid."

    I believe that for the most part, how people choose to conduct their affairs is none of my business. Should marijuana be decriminalized? Yep. What I think should be criminalized is telling other people what you think they should be doing instead of what they are doing. :p

    Actually, I asked my hubs to do that when I was pregnant (16 years ago). He's been doing it ever since. :rolleyes:
