Using Medical Marijuana During Pregnancy Is No Longer Considered Child Abuse in Arizona

The Arizona Court of Appeals decided last week that pregnant women who make use of medical cannabis under a doctor’s supervision are not ignoring their unborn baby and cannot be added to a list that could restrict their employment. As a result of the judgment, Lindsay Ridgell, a former employee of the Department of Child Safety (DCS), is no longer included in the Central Registry of the organization.
