‘Fox & Friends’ Hosts Blame Homelessness, Teen Drug Use on Legal Marijuana

Conservative pundits at right-wing media outlet Fox News are at it again. The network is known for taking hardline conservative positions on everything, often lying and spreading misinformation along the way.

Now, the network is back on the “reefer madness” bandwagon. This time, Fox News spokespeople and other right-wing talking heads are making the spurious claim that legal marijuana is responsible for a host of social problems, including homelessness, poverty, and teen drug use.

“Fox & Friends” Spreading Reefer Madness Misinformation

On a recent episode of “Fox & Friends,” the network’s right-wing propagandists had plenty of anti-cannabis rhetoric to spread. In the wake of Canada making cannabis legal earlier this week, the talk show turned its focus to the U.S. In particular, they talked about whether or not the U.S. is on course for legalization.

At one point in the conversation, co-host Steve Doocy asked his guest commentators about legalization. He said: “Is it a good idea… to legalize pot nationwide here in the United States? Canada just did it.”

High Demand: Cannabis Sales Stronger Than Expected in Quebec

Sales of cannabis in Quebec are significantly stronger than expected.

The SAQ, which manages Quebec’s cannabis retailer the SQDC said there have been 42,500 sales so far overall: 30,000 online and 12,500 in stores. The SAQ would not reveal a dollar figure for its earnings so far.

Customers at the Ste-Catherine St. location in downtown Montreal are braving two-hour lineups – though some say it’s a far cry from Wednesday’s lineup, which spanned several blocks as Canadians hoped to be some of the first to buy marijuana legally.

Canadian Company Launches Rolling Papers Printed with The Cannabis Act

It’s been a long time coming. Many have been waiting for the day weed would become officially legal in Canada. And today Canadians from British Columbia to Newfoundland can enjoy and celebrate the new cannabis-friendly climate. Many are joining in the spirit and finding unique ways to observe the new law. Cannabis businesses and users alike have spent the last 48 hours taking hold of this momentous occasion. For example, a Canadian delivery service hosted a Willy Wonka-style lottery where a lucky customer wins free munchies.

But none commemorates the passing of Bill C-45 quite like Leaf Forward, Canada’s first and leading cannabis business accelerator. This important bill deserves attention by pot smokers in every province. And Leaf Forward has made it simple to not only honor Bill C-45, but to celebrate it in the highest of style. They have printed every single word of the historic law on rolling papers.

Time’s Up, Roll Up

Marijuana Advocate Hands Out Free Joints to Celebrate Legal Cannabis at B.C. Legislature

It’s hard to count how many rallies marijuana activist Dana Larsen has been to in his life.

But no matter the number, Wednesday’s rally was the first he has been to in Canada where pot was legal. Larsen spoke to a crowd of more than 100 people to mark the legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada. He also handed out free joints and live marijuana plants.

The reason why Larsen wanted to hand out the plants is because he is concerned about the legislation passed by the B.C. government.

“You are allowed to grow your four plants under federal law but if anybody can see any part of that plant from a public space that is a crime in B.C.,” said Dana Larsen. “You can get a $5,000 fine and three months behind bars for someone seeing your plants which double on the second offence. That is bizarre.”
