This is one of those occasions. Dr. Robert Melamede, who has performed some valuable research in the field, was taken in by fake news site Notallowedto.com, and a story they rehashed from before the election entitled “Trump To Legalize Marijuana In All 50 States!”
The story, an obvious fake which was disproven well before the election, was apparently slick enough to fool the unwitting Dr. Melamede — this, despite the fact that I pointed to him, gently at first, then not so gently, his mistake.
When confronted with the evidence, “Dr. Bob” still refused to admit his mistake, adding stubbornness to the list of unflattering traits he sports, along with laziness and cluelessness.
Now, Dr. Bob may know a lot about cannabinoids, but he’s shown he knows damn little about con-jobs. And he even failed to show the initiative to check the veracity of his sources before confusing a lot of people with a fake news post on Facebook.
