Marijuana can cause problems with a pregnancy. Because of the THC it can cause a heart attack in the child, and the child could possibly die. Also, it can cause growth problems, and problems with the nervous system. There is a reason it is recommended not to smoke marijuana during pregancy, the same as there are reason why u shouldn't drink alcohol or smoke cigarrettes while pregnant.
