Fox News doctor: Crack babies come from women ‘smoking this whole marijuana business’

    Fox News 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.”

    Samadi warned that marijuana could cause memory loss, mood changes and psychosis.

    “It actually causes heart attacks,” he added. “It increases your heart rate. And on and on.”

    “We’re seeing in Colorado that we had 13 kids that came to the emergency [room] and ended up in the ICU as a result of overdose from marijuana,” Samadi said. “Now we have crack babies coming in because pregnant women are smoking this whole marijuana business.”

    The Fox News Medical A-Team doctor concluded by calling medical marijuana “the biggest scam I’ve ever seen.”

    “I challenge any doctors, come to my Facebook, convince me how this is healthy for you. I’m 100 percent against this.”

    I don't think any self-respecting doctor would engage in an academic discussion on facebook with someone who's clearly out of touch with reality. I wonder what caused his psychosis.

    This is sort of nonsensical rambling but I presume he's talking about the LD50? Does he really think that's the reason pot is safer than alcohol or cocaine?

    I'm with you, Robo. My favorite quote from the article:

    "So, they’re using death to see what’s dangerous and what’s not."

    Wow. Just wow. I'm surprised this dude's brain has the capacity to keep his heart beating.

    Also, I believe these are the pediatric overdoses to which he refers--no mention of the ICU anywhere, actually:

    I'm 100% against this guy. Whether cannabis is safe or not, this dude is a much bigger risk. He has no idea what he's talking about, and...never trust a doctor who states that the risk that something can kill you is no way to measure whether it's dangerous or not.

    Okay, okay, I know what you're thinking: everybody knows the best way to figure out how dangerous things are is to see how well-established their lobbying is--by that measure, alcohol and cigarettes are much, much safer than cannabis, kids.

    Crack babies from "This Marijuana smoking business"....my IQ just dropped I think. If he is having patients coming in knocked up with crack babies from smoking weed that must be some alien shit or something /sarcasm. Good job Fox News again you prove that you're all idiots who either have incredible blackmail photos/vids or are good under a desk >_>
