The White House routinely finds itself reaching to explain a spurious claim made by the current U.S. president or one of his bureaucrats. Sources are often questionable. “A lot of people” and “many people” are two of Donald Trump’s favourites, for example. It’s less common for the White House to point to the Vancouver Police Department (VPD). But that is sort of what happened in late March when the Trump administration was pressured to explain its claim that fentanyl is turning up in cannabis. It began with a remark from Kellyanne Conway, once a high-profile Trump spokesperson who for some reason now holds the title of White House “opioid-crisis czar”. White House claim of fentanyl-laced cannabis leads back to Vancouver police, who say there is no fentanyl in cannabis
