LOREDO ABDALA, Arturo; CASAS MUNOZ, Abigail  y  MONROY LLAGUNO, Daniela Alejandra. Marijuana. Harmful effects of the social environment on the fetus, childhood, and adolescence. Rev. Fac. Med. (Méx.) [online]. 2014, vol.57, n.6, pp.27-37. ISSN 2448-4865.

We analyze the social and medical situation that children and adolescents are currently living in Mexico. The purpose is to communicate the risks that pregnant women, children and adolescents are exposed to by passively or actively consuming marijuana. It also seeks to aware and update medical students, general practitioners, family physicians, gynecologists, obstetricians and pediatricians about the physical, genetic and neurological effects reported in these populations. Although there are numerous reports in international literature related to this topic, national studies on the matter are scarce, minimizing the chances of preventing harm in Mexican children and adolescents.

Palabras llave : Marijuana; pregnancy; fetus; social situation.
