Surprise & excl; Smoking affects your unborn baby's brain cells


Here is one of the files No. DUH ... Using the pot while pregnant could impair brain development.

Was there anyone assuming that inhaling a bunch of smoke or chowing down on weed-laced brownies that wouldn't affect your own brain altering your fetus in any way?

But in case your bong just now gets loaded up by a hardcore wave of morning sickness, watch out! How The Huffington Post reports, a new study focused on mice and human tissue shows that marijuana could disrupt the way your baby's brain cells are wired.

Researchers found that THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, disrupts the formation of connections between nerve cells in the cerebral cortex. The cerebral cortex is key in that it is responsible for higher order thinking and forming memories. Ever noticed how someone who smokes a lot of weeds seems a little spacey? Yes, that's THC talking about.

Although using marijuana during pregnancy doesn't seem like a breeze, more women seem to be involved. Yasmin Hurd, a neuroscientist at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, told LiveScience that increasing numbers of women of childbearing age are using marijuana, and that group should be made aware of the possible brain development effects of their children.

The study's lead researcher, neuroscientist Tibor Harkany, advises pregnant marijuana to avoid, as the effects of prenatal exposure could well into adulthood. Harkany says no studies have so far compared the effects of marijuana, to that of other drugs, such as alcohol, on fetal brain development.

So now you know. Say no to drugs. At least as long as you create life.
