Vaporizer makes using marijuana less harmful

When using Medical marijuana keep in mind MMJ can be consumed by using a vaporizer, readily available over the Internet at your local head shop and even at some local Dispensaries, which is a device that passes air heated to 325 to 350 degrees over dried marijuana. This allows the active compounds, THC and other healthy (''non-high'' producing) compounds such as cannabadiol and cannabinol, to be inhaled without burning the plant cellulose, which ignites at 451degrees.
Other advantages of using a vaporizer are that much less material need be used and the active compounds are not partially destroyed by burning. This is an example of the public health concept of harm reduction and supports the argument to legalize marijuana.
Maternity Wards Are Testing New Moms & Babies for Marijuana Use

Make sure you don't toke up if you're about to go into labor. At least if you're planning on going to a public hospital in New York City. Because if you test positive for marijuana after the delivery, you're likely to have a child protective services investigation before you even get the baby home. More than a dozen city maternity wards routinely test new moms for marijuana usage and turn the results over to city agencies.
These moms are almost exclusively low-income and minority women. If you're an upper class white woman in the suburbs who pops a Xanax before your delivery (not that you should, but if you do), then you're in the clear.
Family court attorneys apparently see lots of "neglect" cases against new moms, centering solely around a positive test for marijuana use after their delivery. One hospital in the Bronx requires moms to get tested -- if they refuse, then the babies are tested.
One woman at this hospital tested positive -- she admitted she smoked pot two weeks before at a party -- and the hospital reportedly held her and her baby for two days, only letting her go once subsequent tests came back negative. She was still put on "mommy probation" -- which included parenting classes -- for a year.
