Man, you know,
the toughest thing
I get asked by friends,
and it’s always friends, right?
“Hey, you’re a doctor,”
“can I smoke weed when I’m pregnant?”
And I don’t know why they,
they must ask me, Tom, because I was
the kind of guy who like
grew weed in medical school.
Look, I think that it’s
not a particularly harmful
thing in general, with
limited use etc.
We’ve done shows on
chronic use of marijuana,
but when you’re pregnant,
there are mothers who, for them,
marijuana is the only thing
they’ve found
that helps them with anxiety,
or PTSD,
or whether it’s nausea,
maybe you have multiple sclerosis.
Maybe you have some other
indication for cannabis use.
But the truth is,
THC crosses the placenta.
And, it crosses into breast milk,
up to six days after
your last use.
So, whatever you think,
your fetus,
and ultimately your baby,
is getting high if you’re
or otherwise using marijuana.
The THC is entering your child,
and crossing into their brain.
Now whatever effect that
has, and here’s the thing,
the incidence of people
using marijuana
seems to be climbing in pregnancy.
And Kaiser, in Norther California,
actually did a study about this,
and they found that,
there’s a decent incidence,
and it’s been doubling
over a period of time
of women using cannabis
products during pregnancy.
Now what they’ve found is
when they tested urine,
and they compared it to
what women self-reported,
half the women were lying.
So, a lot of doctors
don’t even know
if pregnant women are
using marijuana.
And the thing is, I have a test,
I call it Damania’s Sign,
if you ask a woman,
“Hey are you drinking?”
They say, “No.”
“Are you smoking marijuana?”
They say, “No.”
And then you just go
♪ Hey, hey, hey, hey ♪
And if you hear back,
♪ Smoke weed every day ♪
That’s a positive Damania Sign,
it means probably there’s
some endo-smoke,
is that a 90s thing?
I grew up in the 90s.
All right, so check it,
it crosses the placenta.
The data so far is
very inconclusive
as to what’s going on with this.
But the thing it does
kinda correlate,
and show is that
lower birth weights
from women who use
marijuana during pregnancy,
and some correlation
with other developmental,
intellectual delay in the child.
Now, here’s a way we
can think about that.
And by the way, if you don’t trust me
’cause I’m a Stanford
doctor and all that,
I totally get it.
We have been really crappy
as physicians over the ages,
at figuring out what’s
safe in pregnancy.
Look at diethylstilbestrol,
we have a terrible history.
Smoking during pregnancy, alcohol,
finally but we figured it out.
So the idea is, you science
the crap out of this stuff
until you figure it out.
And here’s where the science is.
We just don’t know.
Could it be the smoking component?
So maybe if you don’t smoke it.
Could it be the THC?
Could it be some other component?
Is CBD safe?
Well the problem with just CBD
is you never know it’s just CBD
because it’s pretty
poorly regulated.
So often the samples
contain THC as well.
So you think you’re just
doing something safe,
and anti-inflammatory like CBD,
but you’re getting THC.
So the way I talk to
friends of mine
who are thinking of
becoming pregnant,
or who are pregnant and
smoking a lot of weed,
and I’ve had these
conversations, is look,
you have to make the
decisions based on
the best knowledge
we have at the time.
If I were sitting in your position,
which is a hard juxtaposition,
since I’m mansplaining this.
I wouldn’t feel comfortable
with the data saying
that this is safe,
because it isn’t there.
So, I get one shot to have a kid
that isn’t totally (bleeped) up.
I have one evolutionary job,
which is reproduce in a decent,
safe way,
and I don’t want to screw it up,
so I wouldn’t do it
until we have more data.
If that data shows that
it’s reasonably safe,
and you think about
the risk of other drugs
for nausea and vomiting,
and other things you
may be suffering from,
psychiatric issues,
and marijuana’s safer than that,
then you make the risk benefit,
and you make the decision, okay.
So I’m not one of those
doctors who come out
and say,
“Hey, don’t do it, just say no.”
I’m gonna say,
“Just say, I don’t know.”
And make the decision based
on the risk and the benefits.
But I just wanted you
to have the information
that we have in
the medical community,
which is enough to go, uh,
do I want my baby high?
And I personally, I’m not
sure I’m down with that.
So like they say,
♪ Hey, hey, hey, hey ♪
No one’s coming with it.
♪ Smoke weed every- ♪
or don’t!
Just maybe don’t, I don’t know.
Or do, we just don’t know.
That’s all I got.
