Karen Wilson , a pediatrician and lead author of a study showing that children absorb chemicals from secondhand marijuana smoke. “This is the first time we’ve been able to demonstrate that there are detectable marijuana metabolites in the urine of children who’ve been exposed to marijuana,” says Wilson, who is the Debra and Leon Black division chief of general pediatrics at Mount Sinai in New York. continue reading thisIt’s a small study, involving 43 young children in Colorado, another state where recreational marijuana use is legal. The children, ages 1 month to 2 years, were hospitalized for bronchiolitis . Their urine samples were sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention , which used a new and highly sensitive test that can detect very low levels of marijuana metabolites. They found 16 percent of the overall samples tested positive. And for the children whose caregivers said they had been exposed to marijuana use, 75 percent had traces of marijuana in their urine. “There is a strong association between those who said there was someone in the home who used marijuana or a caretaker who used marijuana and the child having detectable marijuana levels,” says Wilson. There is very little scientific evidence to show the health risks of secondhand marijuana smoke or vapor, but there are clues that it could cause problems. Some studies have shown that even low concentrations of THC the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana can cause developmental problems for babies whose mothers used marijuana while pregnant. Other research shows that marijuana use in adolescence can impact the developing teenage brain and cause problems with attention, motivation and memory.http://onj.me/medicalinterviewcourse64756
