Father risks autistic child’s future, gives him “medical” marijuana
There is one aspect of the George Soros-owned media’s ceaseless cheerleading for the so-called “medical” use of non-toxic, low side-effect marijuana that saddens us more than any other.
Some parents have been brainwashed into drugging their children with today’s marijuana, which as we all know, is not your father’s Woodstock Weed, Haight-Ashbury Hash, Altamont Herb, Summer of Love Sativa, or Kent State Chronic. As we all know, subjecting children to long-term, heavy doses of marijuana will make them stupid, a potential 8-point drop in IQ when used before age 18!
Now comes this story from KPTV 12 in Portland, Oregon. Jeremy Echols’ little boy, Alex, suffers from a severe form of autistic rage. From the age of three he has suffered seizures and rage that makes him pound his head into walls and beat himself bloody with his fists. Since Jeremy lives in Oregon, one of the eighteen states to defy the federal government’s scheduling of marijuana in the same illegal drug classification as heroin and LSD, he has been brainwashed into believing that doping up his child is the best way to deal with his condition.
Alex is now one of 58 minors currently protected under the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act. While autism is not a qualifying medical condition like cancer or severe pain, in Alex’s case, his seizures were.
And after a few months of treatment, the Echols said they saw a dramatic improvement.
“He went from being completely, yelling, screaming, bloodying his face, to within an hour, hour and a half, he would be playing with toys, using his hands,” he said. “Something that at that time was almost unheard of.”
Jeremy had been treating his son with a panopoly of legal, FDA-approved, real medicines that had numerous unpleasant side effects and no benefit for his self-beatings and seizures, but then gave up and decided to become a federal criminal just to “help” his little boy by subjecting his developing brain to addictive THC. Now poor little Alex will not be able to play in school orchestra, try out for the football team, or develop his full IQ potential.
When the Soros-owned media plays these stories, casual viewers without our credentials in medical science, addiction science, and public policy are hoodwinked by emotional cues into disregarding protocols established for their own good. Sure, it looks like Alex becomes a completely different, calm, laughing little boy who doesn’t beat himself bloody when he uses “medical” marijuana, but that is not how we practice medicine in America.
At Project SAMUEL, we recommend that whoever it is that is involved in the Production, Distribution, Dealing and Sale of Marijuana for Alex’s “medicine” be charged with crimes that “remain misdemeanors or felonies based on amounts possessed.” We call for the immediate law-enforcement raids to hasten the “end of “cannabis clubs” and so-called “dispensaries”” that might be supplying illegal marijuana to treat autistic Alex. And if Alex’s father is found to be in possession of Alex’s medicine, he should be charged with a “civil offense subject to a mandatory health screening and marijuana-education program as appropriate” that could include being “monitored for 6-12 months in a probation program designed to prevent further drug use.”
We are not cruel at Project SAMUEL; we recognize that somewhere within the plethora of dangerous, mind-altering cannabinoids and more carcinogens than tobacco smoke (even though Alex doesn’t smoke it), there may be some medically-beneficial compounds within marijuana that are contributing to Alex’s remarkable recovery. That’s why we whole-heartedly support “a variety of marijuana extracts and other cannabinoid preparations” through “an emergency or research FDA IND program” that could be given “fast-track status in the FDA process”, so reliable, trustworthy pharmaceutical companies can help Jeremy get a real prescription medicine paid for through his insurance or out of his own pocket.
Such a “fast-track” process should only take a few months or a year. Surely, Alex Echols can use completely ineffective legal medications and Jeremy can cope with restraining his son and dressing him in helmets until then. After all, the future IQ and job prospects of a severely autistic little boy are at stake!
