I'm no fan of Fox News but the image is out of context. It's a 2 and a half minute clip, the banner is up for the whole report, and this image is briefly flashed on there along with alcohol and opioids when they were talking about rehab clinics that deal with all those addictions. fwiw the the banner is correct, the CDC website does say, "about 1 in 10 marijuana users will become addicted. For people who begin using younger than 18, that number rises to 1 in 6." and defined addiction like alcoholism.
