Medicinal marijuana would be their son's final stand, in a final battle against the ravages of autism


While some might try and have you believe that the medical use of marijuana should be considered shocking in the treatment of a 10-year-old boy with a severe autism. Over a two-year period we did trials with Respirdol and Abilify (atypical antipsychotics), Ritalin and Adderall (amphetamines), Prosac, Paxil and Celexa (serotonin reuptake meds), and Tenex (Guanfacine), which is a blood pressure medication. We have a cupboard full of prescriptions for Sam. We tried different versions of the same type medications. We were encouraged to keep trying a medication until we knew for sure it worked or didn't work. letfreedomgrow.com/cmu/SamsStory.htm
