Conservative pundits at right-wing media outlet Fox News are at it again. The network is known for taking hardline conservative positions on everything, often lying and spreading misinformation along the way.

Now, the network is back on the “reefer madness” bandwagon. This time, Fox News spokespeople and other right-wing talking heads are making the spurious claim that legal marijuana is responsible for a host of social problems, including homelessness, poverty, and teen drug use.

“Fox & Friends” Spreading Reefer Madness Misinformation

On a recent episode of “Fox & Friends,” the network’s right-wing propagandists had plenty of anti-cannabis rhetoric to spread. In the wake of Canada making cannabis legal earlier this week, the talk show turned its focus to the U.S. In particular, they talked about whether or not the U.S. is on course for legalization.

At one point in the conversation, co-host Steve Doocy asked his guest commentators about legalization. He said: “Is it a good idea… to legalize pot nationwide here in the United States? Canada just did it.”

The first person to respond to the question was a guy named Joe Peters. At Fox, the fact that he’s a former cop qualifies him to be an authoritative voice

Sales of cannabis in Quebec are significantly stronger than expected.

The SAQ, which manages Quebec’s cannabis retailer the SQDC said there have been 42,500 sales so far overall: 30,000 online and 12,500 in stores. The SAQ would not reveal a dollar figure for its earnings so far.

Customers at the Ste-Catherine St. location in downtown Montreal are braving two-hour lineups – though some say it’s a far cry from Wednesday’s lineup, which spanned several blocks as Canadians hoped to be some of the first to buy marijuana legally.

Cosmetics and beauty company Sephora is expanding its lineup of CBD-infused personal care products. The latest addition is Lord Jones’ CBD lotion.

Lord Jones Pain-Relieving CBD Lotion Now Available At Sephora

Cannabis products are continuing their trendy takeover of health and beauty products. From creams to lotions, gels and makeup, non-psychoactive cannabidiol (CBD) has found its way into everything health and beauty-related. And for good reason, too. CBD offers a range of therapeutic and wellness benefits. It’s an anti-inflammatory, a pain reliever and it can help balance your mood and ease stress and anxiety.

When it comes to the CBD-infused health and beauty market, Lord Jones calls its High CBD Formula Lotion a game-changer. With CBD derived from organic hemp cultivated in the USA and containing zero THC, Lord Jones doesn’t make its lotion with CBD isolate. Instead, it uses full-spectrum CBD oil that preserves the plant’s terpenes and cannabinoid structure. This lotion is “whole plant,” eschewing heavy processing.

On the first day of legalization across Canada on Oct. 17, Thomas H. Clarke predicted his store in Portugal Cove, Newfoundland would run out of product by Friday. He ended up running out on Wednesday afternoon, the very same day cannabis was legalized.

Newfoundland and Labrador is Canada’s easternmost province, with its own time zone a half-hour ahead of mainland Canada. It was the first province to open for business as 12:01 a.m. struck on Oct. 17, heralding the beginning of legal cannabis in Canada.

After opening up as one of the first stores to sell cannabis legally, Clarke’s THC Distribution ran out of product just after 4 p.m. on Oct. 17. “It’s very bad news in my eyes. I ran out at 4:20 today, believe it or not,” Clarke told CBC News.

“I’m a little shocked that I sold out so fast, and also very upset that I don’t have product for everybody. I’m letting down a lot of people here and I was assured that if I paid for the cannabis I would receive it.”

Clarke said he only received $10,000 worth of a $70,000 order from his supplier, adding he doesn’t know why his order was short,
