    My autistic son (who also has a brain injury and a neuromuscular disease) began using medicinal cannabis at age 16. He is now 23. He takes 1/2 as many pharmaceuticals as a result of the cannabis, and he progressed from a low/mid-functioning autistic to a high-functioning autistic (NO PUN INTENDED!) When he was 10 yrs old, the doctors told me that he would have to be institutionalized eventually. I said “over my dead body” and I set out to provide any and all reasonable options for him. The cannabis has been the BEST treatment for him. He is now a father, and I am helping him open up his own business — both achievements that would’ve been impossible without medicinal cannabis.
