Is it bad to smoke pot ONCE while pregnant?

One time probably won't hurt anything, but it isn't good to smoke anything, drink alcohol or use any kind of drugs while pregnant. Even plenty of prescription medications can cause harmful effects for your baby. But, plenty of women smoke and drink before they know they're pregnant and their babies turn out just fine. So don't worry too much, just don't make it a habit.
Pot is a natural relaxant.  It's not a good idea, but it shouldn't do any harm.  It's the tar in pot smoking that is harmful.  Most strands you get off the streets are full of it.  Like "V" said it's not a good idea for a habit.  I smoked and drank, before I found out I was pregnant, and I will admit, had a ciggerette or two during the first few weeks. 
Actually pot can calm u and the baby, but just like any drug, it's addictive and could cause problems. I smoked for 3 months before I found out I was pregnant and my son was fine, however, if ur in ur 3rd trimester; I wouldn't. The lighter fluid chemicals is actually what is the worst thing for u to be inhaling, not the tar in the pot, and I have friends who smoked the whole time during their pregnancies (but didn't use a lighter) and their babies were fine as well. NOT that I am encouraging that at all, however one time won't hurt u or the baby. Just hold off from doing it again...he/she will be here before u know it!  :)
