It's likely better than cig smoke. Don't sit in a room filled with any kind of smoke regardless of what it is. Yes - inhaling or not, you can do a lot of damage to the unborn baby... coming from someone who has smoked pot for awhile....In my opinion it will ever be as bad as cigarettes, but why take the chance? They're so fragile- give it fresh air...

I dont believe second hand Marijuana does anything bad to the baby when you are pregnant. Second hand smoke from Tobacco is infinitely worse for you than second hand Marijuana.

second hand smoke is inhaling smoke from another person's cigarette cigar or pipe. 46,000 deaths from heart disease in secondhand smokers. 3,440 cases of lung cancer in nonsmokers. second hand smoke is almost as bad as the real thing, second hand smoke can cause many types of cancer and lots of cardiovascular problems too.

Secondhand smoke is smoke that has been exhaled, or breathed out, by the person smoking. Secondhand smoke harms children and adults, and the only way to fully protect nonsmokers is to eliminate smoking in all homes, work sites, and public places. There is no risk-free level of secondhand smoke exposure; even brief exposure can be harmful to health.

Pregnant women should not eat hampsters. Ever.

The reason why smoking when you'r pregnant is bad is because the smoke also goes into the lungs and heart of the unborn child.

Short answer: yes. Long answer, inhaling cigarette smoke is bad, inhaling diluted cigarette smoke is less bad -- but given ten years, not good.

Alcohol is very bad to drink for pregnant women. Alcohol travels directly from the placenta to the baby and can cause stillbirth and even a miscarriage.

It's not recommended for pregnant women since they don't know what effect it have. They recommend you ask your doctor.

Secondhand smoking can be just as bad as regular smoking, and smoking shelters can help protect non smokers from secondhand smoking.

Yes!!!! No offense but do you live under a rock? When you smoke, your baby smokes. Don't do that to a helpless human being.
