Fact-Check Fail: ‘Arizona Republic’ flubs Mark Brnovich’s bogus medical marijuana claim

Fact checkBy Ray Stern | Phoenix New Times

Where does 25 equal 30, and 22.7 percent equal “most?”

The Arizona Republic’s “Fact Check: Keeping Arizona Honest” column, of course.

In Sunday’s paper, as a reader informed us this week, a fact-check completely flubs the evaluation of Mark Brnovich’s comment on TV last month about the state’s medical-marijuana patients. (The article has not yet appeared online at azcentral.com)

“In Arizona, we legalized marijuana for medical purposes and the results of that apparently are that there are bunch of 18- to 25-year-old males with back problems and migraine headaches because that’s who’s getting the cards, most of them,” the Repub quotes Brnovich, state Attorney General-elect, as saying during an interview on Channel 13’s “The 48th” show.
