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.

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."

Dopamine has many functions in the brain, including important roles in behavior and cognition, voluntary movement, motivation, punishment and reward, inhibition of prolactin production (involved in lactation and sexual gratification), sleep, dreaming,[20] mood, attention, working memory, and learning. Dopaminergic neurons (i.e., neurons whose primary neurotransmitter is dopamine) are present chiefly in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) of the midbrain, the substantia nigra pars compacta, and the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus.
