And no I am NOT saying anyone should go out and illegally buy marijuana for their kids, just like no one goes and buys acid instead of ritalin, OK? So please don't twist this, all I have done is shared a link.
If this is one day a proven miracle drug available on prescription, what is anyones problem?

I am in two minds about things like this. Personally I think every possible cure or help whatever it might be should be tested, looked into by professionals because surly with more than 1 in 100 people being diagnosed we have to find something some day.

 

But on the other hand I think people shouldnt go nuts and try anything on their kids not knowing the full (medical tested) facts because it can end up being this then that and then something else till you have a kid who only eats specific food, sleeps in an oxygen chamber and has 4 tbs of snake oil in their breakfast milk and a joint before bed!

:wall

I have one simple problem with this article:

It is yet another one-sided argument listing all the claimed benefits of marijuana, completely ignoring all the known negatives of the stuff, and not referring to any of the properly peer-reviewed science.

Anyone who reads blogs or web articles and can't spot an obvious bias like that (and apparently that is about half the population of the world...) is going to have to fall back on their prejudices.

Nice. :huh:

Oh no of course, but to just say oh it is illegal and bad is silly, as I should have said ritalin is sold illegally in the form of speed, no one would go and buy it for their ADHD kid, but if medical science can use marijuana in a prescription tried and tested drug why not? All prescribed drugs are illegal without a prescription are they not?

Here's the biggy:

Marijuana is actually potent enough to relieve many autism symptoms and essentially reestablishes synapses which are vital for correct brain function.

1. Marijuana doesn't relieve any autism symptoms. Medical research has shown that it distorts sensory perception, something that many people with autism already have problems with; it causes memory and learning problems (and autism isn't called a 'learning disability' for nothing); and it causes problems with thinking and problem solving - like people with autism can afford to have that reduced! Marijuana will make autism symptoms worse.
2. Even if the weed did "essentially re-establish synapses" (absolutely no evidence to show that it does) autism isn't caused by any problems with synapses.

Marijuana isn't even arguably a valid treatment for autism. This is just another attempt to exploit the autism lobby to support someone else's campaign.

Oh no of course, but to just say oh it is illegal and bad is silly

As you can see - I haven't. I'm not silly.

Doughnuts, you can say the same about ABA, Son-Rise, and all the biomedical crap sold in all the so-called 'autism clinics' in the world.

Back in the 1960s and 1970s they used to drug autistic kids with tranquilisers.

 

I can't see how this is any different.

i have seen programmes where in some states in america wacky backy is legal but not in others ,guess its just the same as some drugs being legal here and not in other countries ,or not legal  here but are in others 

 

the thing is if we didnt all know it was a drug sold by drug dealers and illegal and one day our doctor prescribed it as a new legal drug to help our kids  we would proberbly try it 

 

i think its just that we know what we know about it

It's not legal in any of the american states that allow it's use as it is a federal matter, or even if Amsterdam for that matter. It's decriminalised/tolerated. In most of the US states this is only for someone with a medical qualifying condition.
