    Medical A-Team member Dr. David Samadi asserted over the weekend that “crack babies” were caused by women “smoking this whole marijuana business.”

    On the Saturday edition of Fox & Friends, host Clayton Morris reported that a recent study published in Scientific Reports found that marijuana was less dangerous than any other common recreational drug, including alcohol and cigarettes.

    “I think it’s a very dangerous study,” Samadi argued. “People need to be very careful about not getting the wrong message from this study. They’re using a lethal dose as a comparison. For example, they’re putting pot against or weed against cocaine or alcohol. We know you need less amount of alcohol to die. So, they’re using death to see what’s dangerous and what’s not.”

    “They’re extrapolating a lot of these animal studies and surveys that doesn’t make a lot of sense and coming with this whole thing that pot is safer,” the doctor insisted. “Absolutely not. It’s a huge fraud.”

    Not stupid brother. Follow the money and the special interests groups. IE, private prisons that the right are trying to protect.

    Guy's just making himself a buck with a benign argument. He doesn't disprove a thing. He does what all shills do, he attacks the methodology. Some make money being pro, some make money being con in everything in the medical field.

    Spot on! Marijuana will be completely legal everywhere inside of ten years. A lot of people aren't going to be happy about it, but fortunately, none of them are regular, average citizens. As for private prisons, the alcohol and tobacco industry, and the others who stand to lose...fuck 'em!

    Maybe his logic was that most (if not all) people who smoke crack started off by smoking weed, the whole gateway argument.

    I hear similar crap from others in my generation. Its as if they were getting high and protesting the VietNam war when we were in HS and some-when between then and now their whole belief system warped. I know some are shilling, but i hear it from so many that I suspect they really believe it.

    I think the tobacco industry can convert to pot overnight since pot grows so much quicker than tobacco and takes to hydroponics so much better than tobacco; i wouldn't be surprised if they haven't made the transition already and are just waiting to go into full out production and marketing. Private prisons have a ready-made market since when one offense vanishes, we just re-value lesser offenses for jail time.

    The industry that is probably fighting this tooth and nail is big phrama: given the choice of pot or xanax, xanax loses all the time. The money from anti-anxiety meds is bankroll for big pharma: when the other meds they make have limited markets, almost everyone gets anxiety at some time in their lives and current health insurance favors generic meds over treatment now.

    A pregnant lady smoking weed will affect a fetus negatively. Wow, super far-fetched. :rolleyes:

    a pregnant lady probably got that way as a result of the assistance of pot or alcohol.

    that's like saying all serial killers begin with abusing animals... Beth Stern has been abusing dogs and more recently cats for years now and as far as I know, she's never killed a human.

    saying serial killers began by killing smaller animals is not the same as saying people who kill small animals become serial killers
