I dont know why this reminded me of this, but today is Shakespeare's 449th birthday, and its also speak like Shakespeare day.

Pic related not only because of this, but because today in drill class in the middle of our routine, i shouted "thou must slapeth thine ho!" everyone laughed, everyone got punished for it.

It means that mrarijuana avctivates deficits in the signaling pathway which leads to mutations that are tied to autism, you autistic morons.

Doesn't it mean that autism is linked to not getting enough marijuana?

Based on this article it's supposed to help you get back to the norm if you have autism.

To everyone confused about the wording of the cannabis & autism one, here's the link: www.the-scientist.com/?articles.view/articleNo/35088/title/A-Link-Between-Autism-and-Cannabinoids.

Basically these researchers found common mutations on the endocannabinoid pathway in autistic mice. They're still unsure whether medical marijuana would lessen or exacerbate autistic symptoms but believe it's the next step in research.

A quote from the article
"The researchers studied two mutations in neuroligin-3 (NL3), a gene encoding a protein involved in building and maintaining synapses. One mutation is a deletion of the entire gene, while the other, called R451, involves a single amino acid substitution. “These two mutations both have been associated with autism in humans,” said coauthor Thomas Südhof, a cellular physiologist at Stanford University."

The part of the brain that weed affects-the endocannabinoid pathway-is also now believed to be the part of the brain that is affected by autism. Basically, there's a faulty link or it's completely gone. Obviously this opens up a lot of questions on the effect that weed would have on an autistic brain. I find it interesting that this research has been published just after all the headlines of the mother prescribing medical marijuana for her autistic son, who I think was aged 9 or something, although I'm not sure.

At the risk of sounding like a retard, you're trying to explain this easier while using words like "endocannabinoid" and "exacerbate."

I agree, and I think the concept of exploring an alien terrain with possible alien life would be a cool experience for just about everyone. Except creationists and mormons, they don't believe in that stuff, so **** those people.
