Study: Pot-consuming pregnant women have THC in breast milk weeks later

March 8 (UPI) -- Pregnant women who use marijuana-based products have high levels of the drug's psychoactive ingredient in their breast milk for up to six weeks after giving birth, a study published Monday by JAMA Pediatrics found. Levels of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, in the breast milk of participating women were as high as 5.5 nanograms per milliliter two weeks after giving birth, the data showed. Advertisement At six weeks after delivery, these levels had dropped to just under 2 nanograms per milliliter. To put that in perspective, motorists with blood THC levels above 5 nanograms per milliliter can be charged with driving under the influence in many states. Today's marijuana products are more potent and several medical societies recommend abstaining from marijuana use during pregn...
