Impact of In Utero Marijuana Exposure on Neurodevelopment, Behavior and Mental Health: A Longitudinal Birth Cohort Study

This study will investigate whether maternal prenatal marijuana use increases the risk of impairments in a child’s executive functioning and mental health, after accounting for other factors such as tobacco, alcohol, and other drug use; socioeconomic status, and maternal mental health postpartum. We will look at both the independent effects of prenatal marijuana use and the synergistic effects of concomitant substance use as well as differential effects by infant sex.
