Pregnant teens are twice as likely as their peers to use marijuana. That's according to a new study from the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
Researchers looked at 13 years of data from over 400,000 women.
Seven and a half percent of pregnant teens said they smoked pot. That's compared to 3.8 percent of non-pregnant teens.
Experts say marijuana may have negative effects on fetal development, especially during the first trimester.
