cheers i had a little scan through that then started a search on 420 and found very little thats why i posted a view on the subject
thats a bullshit story anyone who gives a narcotic to a child who is underage needs locking up. playing with medicating yourself or kids is no joke. and definately shouldnt be promoted here.
Bullshit yourself, if you're gonna make stupid statements like people need locking up perhaps you should at least get the terminology right first - regardless of the legal status in many countries, medically and chemically cannabis is not a narcotic
Would you give your child an aspirin if he/she had a headache ? Well then you are irresponsible and need locking up, more people have died from taking aspirin than have died from cannabis.
Have you ever given your kids Calpol ? HOW DARE YOU, paracetamol kills loads of people every year.
Have you ever given your kids cows milk ? YOU EVIL FUCKER - cows milk has killed more people than cannabis has.
Need I go on ?
big thank you from the daze household
so glad you said this. i've been trying to write an appropriate reply to it, but kept getting angry and going off track. you've put into words what i couldn't. nice one.
happydays, anyone with a brain can see you are a caring, loving father, who'd only do the right thing by your son. regardless of what certain muppets might think. you don't need to explain yourself dude.
i dont think people realise how corrupt and ludicrous the pharmacuetical business is. it's big business, with vast sums of money being spent on it by the government, who are also making money from it. there's also alot of old, pre-historic even, psychiatrists who just throw med's at people without thinking of the long term damage/side affects, then use more meds to counter act them.
i havnt worked with alot of older people in care, but those i have worked with, have been totally screwed by the medication they've been taking for years. mentally, and physically.
i still reckon that lad in the link did not need the cannabis in the end. it was getting off the 'legal' med's that done him the most good, and the father even goes on to say how they're learning to control his temper using coping strategies together and not relying on the cannabis. this show's they dont need the cannabis. the cannabis may have made the transition coming off the med's easier though, and that's cool.
alot of doctors and psychologists are afraid to take people off of medication because of the affect it can have. surely, if a medication is that dangerous to come off, dont put people on it! i'd argue that a week or month of problematic behaviour and physical needs with alot of hard work, is worth a lifetime of happyness off of medication.
in my experience, as people with autism get older, they learn to cope better with it, and those around them learn too, i dont think they 'get better' as such. even those with profound learning difficulties do seem to stablize as they get older.
hormones must play a big part in the aggresive/destructive behaviours too, but i dont know the facts about this..
