Charting Pediatrics

Nov 23, 2021

Colorado and Washington became the first states to fully legalize the recreational use of marijuana back in 2012. Since then, many states have followed. Although marijuana is usually a natural and non-harmful drug, researchers do not know the effect THC can have on a fetus during the prenatal period or on infants during breastfeeding. As a start, researchers set out to understand how much THC is excreted in breast milk and for how long.

Today, I am happy to be speaking with my colleagues, Dr. Maya Bunik & Dr. Erica Wymore.

Dr. Bunik is the Medical Director for our Child Health Clinic and is a Professor for General Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Dr. Wymore is a Neonatologist here at Children’s. She is also an Assistant Professor for Pediatrics Neonatology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
