It's unbelievable what we're spending our time arguing about

Doctors at a major Boston hospital report they are seeing more hungry and dangerously thin young children in the emergency room than at any time in more than a decade of surveying families.

Res ipsa loquitur.

Don't overreach, Loka. I was making a narrow point about a comment -- Orac speaks truth.

Oh Ok, sorry we feel a bit militant sometimes.

3 Megatons of medicine at stake here. A bit of a global crisis.

Cannabis is medicine for autism, they were rather mean about it over at Orac's blog so we've decided to try to out troll the vaccine trolls because anti vaccine & vaccines cause autism nonsense is taking attention away from looking at serious treatment options. Orac's contribution is too valuable to be wasted on mythbusting.

He needs to be helping us to vindicate the safety of our medicine.

We've been producing proof but he's been suppressing it whenever it's anything anti-tumour related. Doesn't that strike you as odd?

Is he worried that he will have his position taken from him by the NIDA puppetmasters if he talks about the forbidden cancer cure?

Oh yeah, smoking it won't cure cancer but millions of people are convinced that legitimate research needs to be done on the right concentrated preparations (Oil). Judges and eminent professors rank amongst them.

We feel that prohibition of cannabis constitutes genocide and it must cease immediately.

It's getting embarrassing! Can you help please?

I do believe that the law unreasonably restricts research on cannabis -- it's very hard to get a license, and you have to buy it from one government-contracted farm that, from what I hear, produces fairly trashy bud. And the culture discourages research, and it's very hard to convince NIH reviewers tofund it. So yes to all that. Doubt it is of any particular use in autism, I must say, however.

Re: the dangerously thin children, I believe that is simply the oligarchy's way of fighting childhood obesity. Very effective.

Orac kicks butt.
