Fox News hosts warned viewers on Monday that "gummies" infused with marijuana are threatening the lives of Americans.


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."

"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."

"Yeah," co-host Ainsley Earhardt agreed. "You don't start on cocaine, you probably start with marijuana and it leads to other things."
