Fox Claims Marijuana Is Leading To Overdose Deaths In The United States

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said marijuana is "killing people every day across the United States."

Marijuana is an addictive gateway drug leading to overdose deaths across the United States, according to Fox & Friends hosts and their guest, the sheriff of Polk County, Florida.

On Monday’s edition of Fox & Friends, host Brian Kilmeade spoke to a sheriff in Florida about a 12-year-old boy who was charged with felonies for sharing marijuana candy with his classmates.

“No one talks about this,” Kilmeade complained. “THC is addicting. I know so many people — they say they were told one thing and they get addicted to it and that’s an addicting substance. There is a price to pay for pot.”

The sheriff said pot is “killing people every day” in the U.S.

“It’s not a minor non-violent felony,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd opined. “It’s ruining families and killing people every day across the United States. And we stand here in denial thinking that it’s not a gateway drug to drugs that’s killing people.”
