Oh, the sad irony. On April 2, communities around the world were
marking World Autism Day by bathing their local landmarks in blue to
raise autism awareness. Oceanside RCMP marked the day by bathing the
Phoenix Pain Management Society in blue and confiscating a shipment of
CBD destined for an autism group in a large Canadian city.

It's unfortunate for Phoenix's volunteer Karl, being charged with
possession for intent of trafficking, for doing what the Stanley
brothers are being accoladed for in Colorado.

How should we thank the Conservative government for protecting those
autistic children from getting their medicine? SensibleBC is offering
education to parents who want to understand how cannabis helps with
childhood autism and epilepsy. Contact  to RSVP
to our event "Cannabis and Childhood Disease." It will be hosted at
Phoenix Pain Management on Friday, April 10 at 7 p.m., with donation
proceeds going to autism support groups.

While the Stanley brothers are saving lives of kids with epilepsy and
improving quality of life for kids with autism, government is taking
medicine away from kids in Canada. Someone should remind our boys in
blue that April 2 is autism day and jokes like the raid they conducted
should be limited to April 1.
