Welcome to ehealthforum,
If your anomaly scan around 20 weeks was normal and did not show any major birth defects, then birth defects can be ruled out, however, if there has been any neural or other effects on the baby due to your drug use, the, then it can be evident only after baby is born and has developmental delay in milestones and fine movement and mental abilities etc. Discuss your problem in detail with your treating doctor/gynecologist or a perinatologist for further clarification and assistance.
Take care.
