Well I don't know about everyone else here......but even if I wanted to do what everyone else does, I would have a hard time doing that because of how my aspergers effects my social interaction abilities.......lol you just have a superiority complex and should quit it. You're just being an ass.

It seems that the thing to do is to go and live in Canada. How easy is it to become Canadian?

It depends on the aspergian. I know I'd never be able to do it now because I am anxious enough as it is. However, as a teen I enjoyed it - but it does make me wish I had never tried it as it opens up your mind to the idea of other mind altering substances which can be hazardous to mental health and I remember the days when I was happy just talking a walk or going on a scary fun fair ride - that all goes out the window when you discover drugs. It's kinda sad.

Each to there own but people should be taught about all consequences and effects of drug taking from a young age rather than teaching them that 'all drugs are bad' , though I know myself that they can be.

We're practically letting everybody in. Just hitch a ride with some illegals and in 6 months you'll be collecting a welfare check and going to college, asides from smoking some sweet, sweet herbs relatively unmolested by authorities

I can teach yoga, and have no objection to teaching autistic people on cannabis. Failing that I can test computer software but that's too corny!

Is it 99% sure the FBI can't get you in Canada?

No, they sometimes succeed in extradition. The 'Prince of Pot' Mark Emery was extradited from Canada to serve jail time in a US Federal Prison. Whenever our government is led by the Conservative Party they tend to let the Yanks have free reign with our country. I wish they would stop being so interventionist, the rest of the world really hates them for it

Where's the guy that said it's all in the mind?

I keep reading scientific papers that seem to hint that autistic people have differences in their endocannabinoid systems which are addressed with cannabinoids?

It's physical medicine for autistic people, not just 'mind medicine'.

Got any links?

I've personally used cannabis on several occasions and found it to be helpful in relieving some of my symptoms however I've decided not to use it anymore unless I can find a trusted supplier as I don't like mixing with the sort of undesirables that distribute it in my area and it probably isn't even good stuff coming from them anyway. I prefer to vaporise it as I dislike smoking and it is more economical on the weed :P

You forgot the option of:
"No, they shouldn't, but it should be legal for everyone."

As much as I myself dislike pot, I believe people should be allowed to put it in their bodies.
