You can read the whole press release here.
The paragraph we are interested in is reproduced here:
“This Cancer Centre will allow new and existing patients to seek professional help and assistance, while assisting patients to self-administer treatments for different ailments including: AIDS, Alzheimers, Anti-Aging, Autism, Asthma, Arthritis, Auto Immune Disease, Brain Trauma (Closed Head Injury), Cancer, Chronic Pain Management, Crohn’s, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Diabetes, Digestive Illnesses, Gastro Intestinal Reflux Disease (GERD), Glaucoma, High Blood Pressure, Influenza, Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA), Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Tourette Syndrome.”
I have changed ‘Autism’ to bold face type so that you can easily pick it out from the list.
So there may not be a huge science base ‘proving’ that cannabis treats autism, but there appears to be real evidence worldwide of many autistic people, their carers and doctors, ‘believing’ that cannabis treats autism.
To suggest that they have all got it wrong is, frankly, downright insulting to these people.
