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.”

WATCH LIVE: House holds historic vote on the impeachment of Donald Trump
After a 14-hour House Judiciary Committee Thursday hearing considering the impeachment of Donald Trump, Democrats and Republicans on the committee will reconvene once again Friday morning where they are expected to finally vote on the articles of impeachment before sending them to the House floor for a full vote scheduled for next week.
According to NBC, "In a surprise move, Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler delayed the vote until Friday morning at 10 a.m. after more than 14 hours of debate. There were five votes on Thursday: one to eliminate the first article on abuse of power, a second to strike a reference to former Vice President Joe Biden, a third to note the aid withheld from Ukraine was eventually released, a fourth to strike entire second amendment on obstruction of Congress and a fifth to strike the last lines in each article. All were voted down and along party lines."
‘Let’s have Stormy Daniels week’: MSNBC’s Morning Joe urges Dems to call GOP bluff and expose all of Trump’s crimes
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough urged House Democrats to call the Republicans' bluff and expose President Donald Trump's alleged crimes, week after week, in hearing after hearing.
The "Morning Joe" host conceded that limiting the scope of impeachment to the Ukraine scandal had not moved the needle in public opinion, so he suggested expanding the process to include the federal crimes that GOP lawmakers have argued are necessary to impeach.
"As we move through this process, and the Republicans in the House acted in such an abhorrent way," Scarborough said. "It's going to damage them in the long run, they were much better off to say, 'Yes, he did it, but it's not a crime, this is why we're not removing him.' They're not doing that."
Who is worse: Donald Trump or Mitch McConnell ?
He’s maybe the most dangerous politician of my lifetime. He’s helped transform the Republican Party into a cult, worshiping at the altar of authoritarianism. He’s damaged our country in ways that may take a generation to undo. The politician I’m talking about, of course, is Mitch McConnell.
Two goals for November 3, 2020: The first and most obvious is to get the worst president in history out of the White House. That’s necessary but not sufficient. We also have to flip the Senate and remove the worst Senate Majority Leader in history.
Like Trump, Mitch McConnell is no garden-variety bad public official. McConnell puts party above America, and Trump above party. Even if Trump is gone, if the Senate remains in Republican hands and McConnell is reelected, America loses because McConnell will still have a chokehold on our democracy.
