In the National Survey of Drug Use and Health, the adjusted prevalence of past 30-day cannabis use in pregnant women aged 18 to 44 years rose from 2.37% in 2002 to 3.85% in 2014.1 Another study found a relatively similar increase from 4.2% in 2009 to 7.1% in 2014.2 Corresponding rates of alcohol use (eg, 11.2% from 2001-2005 vs 10.2% from 2011-2013) and cigarette smoking (eg, 13.3% in 2002 vs 12.3% in 2010) during pregnancy have generally decreased.3–5 These reports encourage more detailed characterization of patterns of substance use during the course of pregnancy.
