Making a Killing: Psychotropic Drugs

Finally someone has made a movie about what so many of us have been saying for a long time ... psychotropic drugs are prescribed indiscriminately to the population at large, and by so doing, feed into an industry whose business model is to make money ...

The people who have put it together are the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), and I first heard about the video via Fight For Kids where you can see the preview of the movie, and then the site gives you a link to purchase the movie here.

Because I wanted to embed the trailer here in the blog, and I was not able to get the code from that website, I went to YouTube looking for the trailer, but instead, found the entire film there in segments of 10 minutes. Here is the first one:

Then I started worrying that it's not legal to show the movie on YouYube, and that it would be removed from there any time soon, and so I went hunting some more, and then eventually found that CCHR shows you the entire film here

If you have been given a prescription for psychotropic medication, or someone in your family has, or a dear friend has, please watch this.

  1. This should be required viewing before anyone visits a psychiatrist.

    I know so many Americans on medication it makes me sick (not sick enough for psychotropic drugs, please).

    Thanks for posting this!
