Marijuana Products In Michigan May Carry Warning Labels

Legislation approved by the state House Judiciary Committee this week would slap warning labels on marijuana products warning against use by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. 

The legislation is now on its way to the State House floor.

Representative Graham Filler is the chairman of the Judiciary Committee.

“When you are pregnant, marijuana use is not the best thing you can be doing.  And I believe everyone agrees with that,” said Filler.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists discourages marijuana use during pregnancy due to concerns about an increased risk of underweight and premature infants.

Sales of recreational marijuana products are expected to begin in the coming months.
