Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has given the green light for a second time to a $5.5 billion pipeline expansion that has attracted strong opposition from environmentalists and some indigenous groups.

Trudeau, an ardent supporter of green energy, has found himself defending the 620-mile Trans Mountain pipeline expansion since his government first approved it in 2016. The project is meant to bring petroleum from oil sands near Edmonton, Alberta, to tanks in Burnaby near Vancouver on Canada's Pacific Coast.

The warning would be aimed at pregnant and nursing mothers. 

The Journal of the American Medical Association Tuesday released a pair of studies linking marijuana use during pregnancy with low birth weights and an increased risk of pre-term birth.

Representative Thomas Albert admits a warning label might not discourage some pregnant women from using marijuana.
