Marijuana as Autism Cure?

MA Drug Lab Shut Down Amid Accusations of Mishandling Samples
A Massachusetts laboratory has been closed amid allegations that tens of thousands of drug samples were mishandled. The Massachusetts governor released figures showing the manager conducted an "unusually high volume" of testing between 2004 and 2011, and now thousands of criminal convictions and pending cases remain in the balance.
Who knows how many other states have this same problem. The drug war has given too much power to too many people, one of the reasons it continues and one of the reasons it must be stopped. A lab technician shouldn’t be able to decide who goes to jail for a non-violent offense (or any offense, for that matter).
Obviously oversight is a key, but that misses the bigger picture. The war on drugs is handing a tremendous amount of power to individuals who abuse that power and were never ready to assume it in the first place.
Besides, the less labs have to focus on non-violent drug offenders, the more they can focus on important results, and the more efficient the oversight will be. Yet another way an end to the drug war will help society and even help the government that props it up.

Police Kill Marine During Marijuana Raid; No Pot Found
In this video, KopBuster and former narcotics officer Barry Cooper details how police use SWAT tactics and overreach their bounds when raiding homes.
Police have a tremendous power and drug laws open up too many opportunities for them to use it.
Police officers are human and they make mistakes, but when you are packing the kind of firepower that a SWAT team does, a “mistake” quickly becomes a slaughter.
Marijuana laws in particular lead to many of the events shown in the video below. A good man murdered, a family grieving and wondering why. Forever scarred because a plant is illegal and police have tremendous power to enforce its prohibition.
This story is a few months old, even though the video is very new. Even so, stories like this need to be shared everywhere. More people need to know that the drug war isn’t just a failure, it is an active evil in our society that does great damage to individuals and families.
Police shouldn’t be at war with the public, they should be protecting us. Law Enforcement loses the respect of the public through their attempted enforcement of prohibition. Without the public’s respect, there is no trust.
