The behavioral and organ changes were similar in monkeys, but less severe than those seen in rats. Further studies were carried out to assess the damage that might be done to the developing fetus by exposure to cannabis or cannabinoids during pregnancy. Treatment of pregnant rabbits with THC at doses up to 5 mg/kg had no effect on birth weight and did not cause any abnormalities in the offspring (10ER ). A similarly detailed toxicology study was carried out with THC by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences in the USA, in response to a request from the National Cancer Institute (11E ).

Whether this is relevant to the so-called “gateway” theory is unclear. In the US National Household survey of Drug Abuse respondents aged 22 years or over who had started to use cannabis before the age of 21 years were 24 times more likely than non-cannabis users to begin using hard drugs (114C ). However, in the same survey the proportion of cannabis users who progressed to heroin or cocaine use was very small (2% or less). Mathematical modelling using the Monte Carlo method suggested that the association between cannabis use and hard drug use need not be causal, but could relate to some common xli How safe is cannabis?
