When are these drugs going to get REALLY investigated.
The kids in the school shootings were on these drugs. The suicide rate goes way up on these drugs and yet no one wants to know. Perhaps? The fact that they cause halucinations maybe associated with those that stab their pets, friends family etc., has something to do with it?

They ARE mind altering drugs that create major illness, and body deforming side effects after all!

Yes, hallucinations are nothing to fool around with. A LONG time ago I did the street drug mescaline a couple of times. Talk about hallucinations. It made you see all sorts of things that weren't there, like a huge bouncing ball going down the road, etc. As real as anything.
So hallucinations can be as real as reality when you're seeing them. Add to that any violent or aggression caused by some psychiatric drug and the consequences can be deadly.
