New Zealand. Cannabis use in pregnancy linked to improved child eyesight?



New Zealand.  A study on 165 New Zealand children, and their mothers use of cannabis during pregnancy, has shown some surprises.  Researchers have been quick to want people that these results should not promote cannabis use among pregnant women.  The study showed that children exposed to cannabis ‘in the womb’ scored higher in a visual awareness test at the age of 4.  One other interesting observation is that women who drank alcohol while pregnant gave birth to children that showed below average results in the visual test.  However, when the alcohol using mothers also used cannabis the effects of the drugs cancelled each other out, with the children getting average scores in the visual test.  More information is here
