What, if anything, can be done about neighbors who smoke? The smoke wafts down into my sister in law’s home. She has two very young children and is rightfully concerned.

All I know is if I’m a parent or pregnant I won’t do anything that “might” effect my child. Is smoking really that important?

I have a question about a mother who smokes marijuana and breastfeeds. Not necessarily smoking while nursing or in front of the child, but a breastfeeding mother who uses. I have a relative who smokes and is breastfeeding her baby and I often wonder what affect it might have, if any, on the child (i.e. anything crossing over in the breast milk to the baby?). I would appreciate your thoughts, or it would be great if a separate article could be written on the subject and any related research. Thanks.

It’s a shame that with all that education, you’re still so misinformed about cannabis. That’s because you’ve been educated/ brainwashed by big Pharma. Instead of worrying about the non existent “dangers of secondhand marijuana smoke”, you should be worried about the over prescribing of antidepressants, anti anxieties, and anti psychotics to our kids. The poison big Pharma pumps into our children is the real danger to our children’s brains.
