Fox News Guest: Weed Is Killing Americans Every Day

Mediaite reports:

A Florida sheriff who appeared on Fox News this morning claimed — without evidence — that marijuana is both “killing people every day across the United States” and causing overdoses.

After co-host Brian Kilmeade seethed about the supposed extreme addictiveness of weed — based on anecdotal evidence from his “friends” — the sheriff called use of the drug “not a minor non-violent felony.”

“It is ruining families and killing people every day across the United States and we stand here in denial thinking that it’s not a gateway drugs to drugs killing people,” he added.
