Lani J. Burkman, PhD, Assistant Professor of Gynecology and Obstetrics at the University of Buffalo, et al., presented a study at the annual meeting of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine in San Antonio on Oct. 13, 2003, which found, as reported by WebMD:

When women smoke marijuana, the active ingredient — THC — appears in their reproductive organs and vaginal fluids. Sperm exposed to this THC are likely to act just as sperm exposed to THC in the testes.

When women smoke marijuana, nicotine, or other drugs, their reproductive fluids contain these drugs.

The woman smoking marijuana is putting THC into her oviduct, into her cervix. If the man is not smoking but the woman is, his sperm go into her body and hit THC in the vagina, oviduct, and uterus. Her THC is changing his sperm.
