Default Legal Drug Dealing

In his latest book, "Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America," Robert Whitaker explores the insidious impact of anti-depressants, and other drugs on adults and chid ren. Not only are anti-depressants only marginally more effective than placebos, the side effects can have a harmful, long-term impact. Rather alarming, is his comment that "after several weeks on psychoactive drugs, the brain's compensatory efforts begin to fail and side effects emerge. Essentially, although sometimes providing temporary relief, many drugs progressively disable the natural compensatory functions of the brain, leaving the patient dependent on the drugs or requiring yet other drugs to relieve the side-effects of the original drugs. Sounds like a high-profit racket!
