Scientists at Columbia University say marijuana use among pregnant women is on the rise.

In 2014, about four-percent of expectant moms said they had smoked pot within the past month, which is a 62-percent increase from 2002.

Although the effects of marijuana on unborn babies are unclear, experts recommend pregnant women avoid using any type of drug.
