I am wondering if "Spice" that is smoked is compatable with breastfeeding. Is there any research?
This is impossible to answer. I guess it would depend on the type of spice the mother is using.
I'd suggest its not safe to do this without knowing a lot more about the product.
Sorry, I can't really help you.

What is "spice"
I will try and find out what is in "spice". I think that people smoke it to get a high, but I don't know any more about it.
My husband is a forensic chemist who analyzes drugs for the Oklahoma City police department. Many new "designer drugs" get made to try and skirt the laws that make it illegal. Pot is illegal in all 50 states. But spice, is illegal in 20-30 sme odd states. Spice is a synthetic chemical that is sprayed on various things, like oregano, then smoked similar to marijuana. They are highly variable in dosage, some are halucinogenic and all are a BAD IDEA FOR ANYONE, BUT ESPECIALLY A BREASTFEEDING MOTHER. Spice can be made of multiple things, chemicals and spices, but they all act like marijuana. For example, plastics can be made up of many different mixtures. Some are mixed into ziplock bags while others become Tupperware but they are all plastics. K2 or Spice is a Synthetic substance that produces the same effect as THC(active component in marijuana). There are also bath salts being sold in many of the same places as spice, bath salts are synthetic cocaine and rapidly becoming illegal along with spice.
