Marijuana Use Causes Autism....


Recommended Posts

Have you ever thought it strange that Dopers worry so much about the use of pesticides, not eating meat and only ingesting organically grown products?  Or, what about the national compulsion to drink purified bottled water?

 

The American Heart Association made an alarming statement warning people not to smoke cannabis products, based on an in-depth study published in the journal Nature, found that women who used marijuana during pregnancy were 1.5 times more likely to have a child with autism.  Using marijuana during pregnancy, and post-pregnancy during nursing, poses health risks for a mother and her baby. Marijuana  is not any less dangerous than other harmful drugs and chemicals just because it's "natural."  This is based upon a recent study conducted by D.J. Corsi, J. Donelle, and E. Sucha.

 

There are 483 different identifiable chemical constituents known to exist in cannabis. Of these, their are 66 distinctive and specific class of compounds called "cannabinoids"  that are only known to exist in the cannabis plant.  Some of the constituents of the cannabis plant are: nitrogenous compounds (27 known), amino acids (18), proteins (3), glycoproteins (6), enzymes (2), sugars and related compounds (34), hydrocarbons (50), simple alcohols (7), aldehydes (13), ketones (13), simple acids (21), fatty acids (22), simple esters (12), lactones (1), steroids (11), terpenes (120), non-cannabinoid phenols (25), flavonoids (21), and other elements.

 

The Study (cited below) reported that If a woman uses any marijuana while she's pregnant, THC readily crosses the placenta into the baby's bloodstream. An estimated 10 to 30 percent of the THC in the mother's system will reach the developing fetus, who are are much more vulnerable to the effects of chemicals and toxins than adults.  The study did not determine which or to what extent, any of the other 483 chemicals in marijuana were also absorbed by the developing fetus.

 

THC passes from the mother to her developing fetus, not only from smoking marijuana but by using it in any way, including alternative delivery systems such as:

  • Dabbing: using concentrated cannabis oil
  • Vaping: inhaling cannabis vapor using a vaporizing pen or similar device
  • Consuming marijuana edibles or drinking cannabis-infused beverages.

 

Vaping marijuana oil or is especially dangerous because it has been linked to serious lung problems and deaths. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the CDC have issued a warning that pregnant women should not use any vaping products, including THC-containing products and e-cigarettes.

I find drunkeness unpleasant. Being high is relaxing and makes for interesting dreams,

Huh? Are you under a rock? It’s pretty much wiping out the entire heroine using population . It’s what they use now. And they are all overdosing

All kinds of marijuana smoking going on in the 60s and early seventies but the autism (neurological brain damage) rates did not begin to skyrocket until the 1986 vaccine court deal where the taxpayer takes care of any damages. The increase seemed to coincide with a new MMR injection that was three vaccines in one shot. 

 

The earliest recorded use of cannabis dates back 10,000 years to an ancient village in the island of Taiwan off the coast of mainland China. The Chinese would use the cannabis hemp plant to create shoes and clothes. Many ancient Chinese manuscripts are filled with passages urging people to plant the cannabis hemp plant. Since food was essential rice and millet were the main crops of priority. Secondary crops were vegetable gardens and orchards, followed by textile plants namely hemp. It was discovered that the hemp plant was differentiated between male (hsi) and female (chu). Through this differentiation the Chinese recognized that male plants produced a superior fiber compared to female plants. Female plants on the other hand produced superior seeds. The legendary emperor Shen-Nung lived around the 28th century BC, and is credited with experimenting with China’s plant life in order to find curative medicines. The cannabis plant was primarily used for rheumatism, gout, malaria, and various other diseases.

It is obvious that taking any potent drug during pregnancy should be avoided as with alcohol or tobacco. The vaping issue was traced to using vitamin E as the oil in vaping products. However I am against vaping for any reason.

If that were the case, most everybody in this country would be born with autism

It does dumb people down.  It may also be linked to Alzheimer's.

May, may, may..

 

The findings generated widespread press coverage, but researchers are calling for a cautious interpretation of the results — in part because the association surfaced through an analysis of birth records, not a controlled study.

 

 

 

I'm wondering why I can't find mention of the lead author...

The rate of autism and autism spectrum disorders has gone from being a rare and little know anomaly in children to being nearly epidemic today.   Something has changed.  Marijuana use has steadily increased since the late 1960's.  This correlates with the increase in the rate of Autism and Autism Spectrum disorders.   And, the study seems to support this.

I think autism is overly diagnosed. Some people are just weird. Introverts. Socially awkward. Narcissist. 
dorks. 

I actually tend to agree.   People classified as "high functioning Autism Spectrum" may very well not have autism but rather some other developmental problem.  It does seem that too many people are lumped into that definition. 

 

However, the study, I believe, was limited to those people who are definitely autistic.  I would have to delve further into the sampling criteria to really find this out.

Maybe it's due to global climate change
