LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Marijuana sold in stores would have labels warning pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers about the health risks under bills advancing in Michigan's Legislature.
    
The House voted 105-4 for the measures Tuesday and sent them to the Senate for future consideration.
    
All marijuana sold at provisioning centers or retailers would have to include a health warning for pregnant women, those planning to become pregnant and those who are breastfeeding.
    
A 2017 report issued by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists says 34% to 60% of marijuana users continue using the drug during pregnancy.
