This article presents the author's views about medical marijuana. Like many young women's, the author's indulgence in recreational drugs, including alcohol and caffeine, came to an abrupt halt when her husband and she discovered she was pregnant with the first child. To say she and her husband were ecstatic is an understatement. The author closely followed her doctor's recommendations. When she began to experience severe morning sickness, she went to him for help. He ran all the standard tests, then sent her home with the first of many prescription medicines. INSET: CANNABIS AND THE LAW.
