    Mental illness and austism is on the rise for sure. But it is soooo taboo to mention that it is related to pot/marijuana/ and what some qualify as “soft and innocent” relaxing drugs.
    Nice perspective for the future kids in this country.

    @@Xoxo: No, Xoxo, mental illness and autism are NOT on the rise. This is more hysterical ranting and scare tactics that every moron trots out whenever the subject of drugs and/or vaccines come up. These things are just apparent now because doctors know what they are. In the past, any mental affliction was simply explained away as being “crazy” or “retarded”, or worse, the person was simply put away. They existed before doctors could put a name to them.

    And please, enough with the “Drugs are rampant these days”. Did you not know that cocaine and heroin were actually sold in OTC medicines in the early 20th century? By your logic, all these afflictions should have been apparent centuries ago because drug abuse is not a 21st century invention. Read a book. Seriously.
