• Stossel Calls O’Reilly an ‘Irresponsible Scare-Monger’ Over Legalized Marijuana Use

    On Fox News tonight John Stossel called Bill O’Reilly an “irresponsible scare-monger.” The two men were debating the findings of a new RAND Drug Policy Research Center study that says the number of Americans who use cocaine fell by half from 2006 to 2010, but marijuana use increased by more than 30 percent during that time.

    The RAND study also said heroin use remained fairly stable during the decade, while methamphetamine use rose sharply during the first half of 2000 and then fell.
