Yes Virginia, reactor-grade plutonium can be used to make nuclear weapons

 

NPEC 20th April 2018 , In Reactor-Grade Plutonium and Nuclear Weapons: Exploding the Myths,
long-time defense analyst Gregory S. Jones draws from his decades of
research using publicly available, unclassified information to debunk the
persistent fallacy that reactor-grade plutonium cannot be used to build
reliable nuclear weapons. This belief has long been held by a segment of
the nuclear power industry determined to use plutonium as reactor fuel
despite its highly uneconomical nature. Further, this mistaken belief has
made reactor-grade plutonium readily available to many non-nuclear weapon
states.
