ABC News Lauds Marijuana for AutismDr. Phil Leveque Salem-News,com
To the mothers of autistic children this must be a blessing in the greatest sense of the word.
(MOLALLA, Ore.) - As a physician/pharmacologist taking care of Medical Marijuana patients, I get totally surprised almost every day. The latest blockbuster was ABC News on Monday, Nov. 21, 2009 with a mother of a terrorizing autistic child whom ABC featured on their morning program.
This was about the first big-time TV report of successful treatment of Autism. It was very compelling information and should be a mind clearing event for thousands of parents of autistic, ADD/ADHD children.
I have posted several stories about this on salem-news.com (SEARCH AUTISM AND MARIJUANA THERAPY) which has attracted many emails both supportive and condemning about how dare I support “devil weed” as a useful, effective medicine.
The outstanding email comments were very positive and supportive of Medical Marijuana for Autism, ADD/ADHD and Aspergers. I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP. I was only reporting it and trying to give an explanation.
I am reminded that when Ritalin, a brain stimulant, was reported GOOD for the excitable form of Autism several doctors and Autism parents fainted in shock. Ritalin and amphetamines are still used for these conditions but together they have caused about 300 deaths. “Devil Weed” marijuana has never killed anybody and it DOESN’T cause cancer.
They say the “proof is in the pudding” so I am recommending that cynics read beyond my articles to the positive statements in the emails.
At the same time I DO NOT recommend Marinol, the pure marijuana chemical, for these conditions. Marinol frequently causes severe panic attacks which are extremely frightening to the patients and everyone around them. For children, I recommend marijuana brownies (check your computer) and try very small bites first. Mothers have said, “THIS IS A MIRACLE, MY CHILD IS ACTING NORMAL”. To the mothers of autistic children this must be a blessing in the greatest sense of the word.
In the meantime most likely the only doctors who can give a permit of marijuana for autism is in California.
I hope several thousand Autism mothers emailed in to ABC News.
LETS GET THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD!
WHAT A BLESSING!!
