Psychiatric drugs and violence

Many of you have noticed I have taken a small hiatus from my blogging, in as much as my original content has been kept to a minimum. This is simply because I am focusing on other things at the moment.

With that said, I want you to take the time to watch this video. It is very disturbing, but this topic is not receiving the appropriate scrutiny. Yes, this would be the time for me to go on a rant about the media’s and the left’s focus on gun control except the former counselor in me and the guy with the psychology minor finds this issue too important to cloud with a political riff.

In 2010, psychiatric medications were the most widely prescribed and biggest-selling class of drugs according to the Wall Street Journal:

 Americans spent $16.1 billion on antipsychotics to treat depression, bipolar  disorder and schizophrenia, $11.6 billion on antidepressants and $7.2 billion on treatment for ADHD, according to IMS Health, which tracks prescription-drug
sales

As global sales of these drugs have reach over $76 billion a year, the resistance to discovering the truth about these drugs increases.

Could it be the very drugs that promise “sanity’ are what’s driving people over the edge?

    Don’t let this be Obama’s Reichstag-burning moment! Subway shovings prove the problem is not guns but nuts. It was Mario Cuomo who dumped the nuts on the subway to embarass Reagan’s tax cuts. Then he also refused to close the bathhouses, causing the AIDS epidemic. Let’s publish the names of any woman who has had an abortion!
