The police chief in Gloucester also listed the names and number's of drug companies CEO'S on their Facebook page.Legal prescription medications are what is fueling this problem. Where is their accountability? What about doctors who over prescribe these drugs?

Just watched a piece on the Heroin epidemic in Columbus suburbs fueled by prescription pain pills on 60 minutes.
And you're worried about my disabled child getting access to medical marijuana?
The medications my son has been prescribed carry serious side effects and risks. I'm happy medical marijuana may be an option for him.

I'm elated at the prospect of my disabled child getting an opportunity to try medical marijuana to quell some of his medical issues. So I will be voting No on 2 and Yes on 3. Big pharma is going to take a big financial hit if this passes. Screw them. Greedy bastards.

That show is awful. I can't believe people watch it on a regular basis.

Good luck to Dave Wilkenson and Mike Sorice.The school board needs some fresh people. Mike as a recent graduate knows issues that students face and care about. A grant writer is a great idea. And Dave wanting transparency and better communication...boy that is so badly needed. Get the 74 year old out of there. He is out of touch.

Good questions repeaters. I don't understand why deSouza has to make so many personal insults against the Beiersdorfers? He uses this editorial section as his personal playground of sorts. A true bully pulpit. A couple weeks ago he was going off on some personal vendetta he has against someone who writes to him on yellow legal pad paper. It's annoying. The quality of the editorial page has decreased tremendously since he took over. This paper used to run a wide range of topics and opinions by letter writer's on multiple days of the week. Now it's just limited to deSouza's personal areas of interest and topics pertaining to scores he wants to settle or at the very least jabs he wants to get out there.

What a changed world we live in. Drug addicts, mentally ill people, kids who were diagnosed with all kinds of invisible behavioral & mental problems who were given ritalin, adderall, pick your stimulant, anti-depressants, anti-psychotics, pick your anti-drug...grow up to be drug addicts or mentally ill people or both. Oh, and dementia and alzheimers that's getting to be a real problem. Many drugs in development for that growing industry. But we do have some drugs in use for them. For the best healthcare in the world Americans are very sick. Go get your vaccines and talk to your doctor about the problems in your life and they will readily prescribe you or your child a psycho drug and maybe you can visit this new nice facility in the future.

The full New York Times article. The Vindy version is pretty watered down. No mention of his use of psych meds.
The mother an RN said she has aspergers as well as her son. She and he had a very active online life.
Here is an article about their online activities.
Rather disturbing comment here from his Facebook page:
I have a pill bottle with like five types of pills mixed in. I don't know which ones are the sleep aids so I just took four of each.
People cry we need better access to mental healthcare. This kid had it, so did Adam Lanza who also supposedly had aspergers and a mother obsessed with guns. How negligent these mothers were. Anyone remotely familiar with aspergers knows they tend to have obsessions. What a dangerous obsession to have.
And I hate the fact aspergers is now lumped under the autism umbrella label. Thank psychiatry for that dumb move. People with "autism" don't need to be feared as potential gun toting killers. They have enough problems to contend with.

If I was researching vaccines I would get a copy of the CDC recommended vaccine schedule. Look at all the vaccines my child is due to get. Then find the package inserts. Study the ingredients and look them up on the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet)
I'd also look up each vaccine on the Vaccine Safety Datalink.
I hate I was utterly clueless as to what I was agreeing to and how serious and lasting those decisions would be.

I am not saying autism is always caused by vaccines. Autism is a psychological label. I know there are children who have never had a single vaccine and are diagnosed with autism. I feel vaccines are the biggest reason we have seen such an explosion in the diagnosis of autism in the last 20 years. I laughed when you asked how much money Hooker and Thompson are making. I'm sure it pales incomparison to Gerberding's CEO salary and stock. And the millions Thorsen stole from the CDC. They both work regular jobs. Thompson is still st the CDC and Booker has a job. He's got an "autistic" son to take care of so you know how that is.AND neither wrote the book. An attorney named Kevin Barry did. He heads the Elizabeth Bert law center.The book is to make people aware of what has happened with autism vaccine resesrch at the CDC. Either you're interested in knowing or your not. My one desire is for parents to know what they are agreeing to when they get their kids vaccinated.I soley relied on the vaccines are good and everyone knows it thought process. Only to regret my ignorance.If parents thoroughly research and still wish to vaccinate at least they are doing so with an educated and informed position. I feel I was duped and misled. And abandoned. Mainstream medicine has nothing of value to offer by way of healing from these unacknowledged vaccine injuries. Yes, Walter this is emotional because it's personal. You probably will never change your opinion that vaccines are the greatest. Unless of course you witness and experience a clear reaction in someone you love. Or you could continue engage in cognitive dissonance about the experience. All medical treatments have side effects. Vaccines are not any more special or different. They are only special and different in the fact that no one making them, selling them, or giving them bears any responsibility for what they do. And because of this fact they aren't nearly as safe or effective as they should be.
