6 Months Pregnant and Charged With Growing Marijuana

Recently, my finace and I got caught growing marijuana, and now we are both facing possible jail time.  My fiance has a prior unrelated record and will probably be going in on Friday due to a probation violation.  This is his first child and he is such a wonderful person.  I can see the hurt in his eyes.  I can't help but to hate our legal system when we have done nothing to hurt anyone.  This is going to rip our family apart!

I may get lucky and just see probation time because I have no previous record, but there are no guarantees- meaning they could take my baby from me when he's born! I'm already going through enough being pregnant and now this, with no support from family and very few close friends- I feel like I'm loosing not only my finace, but my best friend, and possibly my child!

What kind of world is this? So I came here to vent..... thanks for listening.

IM VERY SORRY TO HEAR AND I KNOW WHAT U ARE FEELING RIGHT .. IM VERY AFRAID FOR OWN SELF TO. THE ONLY THING THAT I CAN TELL IS THAT I WILL KEEP YOU IN MY PRAYERS. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND UR FAMILY

I am sorry for your situation, I agree with llgmaryland and I agree with squigglefish, on that note, regardless if it is or isnt bad for or the baby it still is illegal and knowingly doing something against the law, you have to suffer the consequences! You do the crime, you do the time!

- Show me show proof that marijuana is bad for you, even during pregnancy there is NO RESEARCH that says that it is, unless you smoke over 3.5 grams a day- look up Harvard research study on marijuana and pregnant women

- I'm not smoking pot right now, but when i was it helped medicinally in many ways- with anxiety b/c I'm bipolar and with morning sickness b/c when I didn't have it I ended up in the hospital due to dehydration. My OB and psychiatrist both knew about it and did not argue that it was bad, only illegal thanks to our crazy government.

- It's a PLANT- it has killed NO ONE and only losers that are lazy ******** who smoke are responsible for bad rumors associated with it.

- I don't sell it and never have. I just don't want to smoke **** created by our own government, sprayed with toxic pesticides-

-"Pot" doesn't take away anyone- It's not heroin or crack. Your dad left on his own, not because he smoked pot- sorry about your luck.

-Stop listening to people's opinions of what marijuana is and look at the actual research before you say I don't deserve my child.

you know growing pot is against the law yet you do it anyway. if you care about your child why would you take such a risk knowing the consequences. i hope this teaches you a lesson. i do hope they take your child from you that baby does not need to be exposed to pot smoke. it is bad enough you smoked it while pregnant. better hope the baby is healthy when it comes out. another thing if you grow pot then i assume you sell it. why expose that child to a bunch of drugies. i hope you will stop what you are doing. look at the problems it has caused thus far. pot took my son's father away from us.
