There's the thing though, it's not clear cut autism the drug induces.  It's just a synapse-regulating inhibitor, so who knows what that'd be.

I cant wait to go down to the local towerblock flats and pick up some pseudo 'insert mental illness here' pill.
I dont think they will ever be able to perfectly replicate autism, but a faked watered down version could still be fun.

What would happen if you gave it to an already autistic person?

Depends on the functionality of the person before they took it.
You could just get an increased in introversion and OCD tendencies, likely with an associated drop in social functioning, empathy, or whatever you want to call it.  Without any clear project or goal presented, I'd guess hours of compulsive gaming or playing with Legos would be invovled.  Keep them AWAY form Wikipedia.
Getting a repsonse or communication out of them may be difficult / impossible.



Anyone ever think about how Richter inhabits the same reality as you and just scream and scream and scream, but in a good way?   :lulz:

I bet elsewhere on the net, people read this article and said, "Cool they've almost got a cure for autism!" ...as opposed to here: "sweet! new drugs!"  :lulz:

I have a dream... a dream... it was just a dream. Never mind. I will go back to sleep.
Okay, why not. Didn't want to die alone anyways.

Be interesting to see what happens if I take this in conjunction with my existing paraplegia stimulator

Probably lasting damage. 

If by damage I meant FUN.
