Cannabis is the most commonly used psychoactive substance in the United States, and recent estimates of the prevalence of cannabis use among pregnant women in the United States range between 3% and 16%. Population-based surveillance data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health suggests that cannabis use among pregnant women in the United States has increased as much as 62% between 2002 and 2014.
