The B-roll used during this story about marijuana isn’t quite accurate

Fox News Channel’s special series “Addicted in America” apparently thinks marijuana is best taken with a spoon.

  • During a report on legalizing marijuana, the network ran B-roll footage that showed a spoon being held over a flame.
  • This is more typically how heroin is converted from a powder to liquid.
  • While there’s not anything saying that you couldn’t heat marijuana over a flame using a spoon, spoons and flames have almost become synonymous with heroin use — and many websites advise that finding burned or melted spoons as a sign of heroin use.
