Weed and autism

On April 2, communities around the world were marking World Autism Day by bathing their local landmarks in blue to raise autism awareness.

Oh, the sad irony. On April 2, communities around the world were marking World Autism Day by bathing their local landmarks in blue to raise autism awareness. Oceanside RCMP marked the day by bathing the Phoenix Pain Management Society in blue and confiscating a shipment of CBD destined for an autism group in a large Canadian city.

It’s unfortunate for Phoenix’s volunteer Karl, being charged with possession for intent of trafficking, for doing what the Stanley brothers are being accoladed for in Colorado.

How should we thank the Conservative government for protecting those autistic children from getting their medicine? SensibleBC is offering education to parents who want to understand how cannabis helps with childhood autism and epilepsy. Contact sensiblePQB@gmail.com to RSVP to our event “Cannabis and Childhood Disease.” It will be hosted at Phoenix Pain Management on Friday, April 10 at 7 p.m., with donation proceeds going to autism support groups.

While the Stanley brothers are saving lives of kids with epilepsy and improving quality of life for kids with autism, government is taking medicine away from kids in Canada. Someone should remind our boys in blue that April 2 is autism day and jokes like the raid they conducted should be limited to April 1.
