At the risk of looking ignorant what is SSRI's?

Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors.

Basically antidepressants. Paxil, Prozac, and numerous others being peddled to kids and adults. I believe almost 100% of the recent mass shootings were individuals prescribed these medications. It is a known side effect that thoughts of suicide or homicide can occur in children on these drugs and some adults and they continue to peddle it like its candy.

Thanks for answering that question.  I knew someone that was taking Prozac and it did seem to change her.  She didn't take it long.  Many of the prescription drugs can have some bad side effects.  Sometimes the cure can be as bad as the disease.

My next question was going to be does other countries have a problem with this drug like the US does?  I guess its everywhere.

Yes seems like it's everywhere nowadays, unfortunately. I haven't really noticed any crime from it, just the labs being discovered or exploding. But definitely it has gone up in the past year.

I do know one guy I went to high school with. I had heard he got into dealing it but didn't think much of it, until i saw him recently and you could see he had changed a bit.

Plus in the north-west of Australia there are huge mining and gas projects going on, billions of dollars coming out of that region. All these companies offer fly in - fly out work plans, where people from pretty much any work field (building and construction/ engineering/ hospitality/ pretty much any field) will be flown up there free of charge to work. They usually have shifts of two weeks on one week off, earning crazy amounts of money. But the problem is they have very strict drug rules, drug tests every time you go up there, so a lot of the workers smoke meth because they know it will be out of their system by the time they start the new shift, unlike marijuana.

Here's me thinking injecting yourself with heroin was sordid....

It's just a mere amateur in the how deprived you can get stakes.

I'm not joking because I look like an oil painting compared with these people.

All I can say is if your smart you will leave the meth alone.  I can't find an article that supports this but I have heard or read somewhere that cooking meth will give you lung cancer fast.

Prescription drugs are bad full stop.

They are made by companies who do not care about people, only money.

new report bout Bayer pharmaceuticals who make most of the prescription drugs and over the counter things like Rennie's and pain killers etc:



They got away with that as well. :td:

Look at my evidence. ^

If you just ignore that then I'm certainly not the one who is an idiot.

Stupid is not looking into things yourself. If most medication is synthetic versions of natural ingredients then why not jsut use the natural one? Yeah I'm healthy because I educate myself of nature.

Chemo sure as hell didn't do anything for my sister. I also know for a fact chemo was the cause of death of someone else I know.

Drugs like insulin, cardiac medications, antibiotics have saved the live of countless people. There are most certainly bad medications, but on the whole street drugs taken for recreational purposes are far more dangerous.

So using a clean needle and injecting Heroin once is worse than taking a pharmaceutical drug once that gave you HIV?




People really need to wake up to this stuff.

These companies only care about profit and are usually part of the cause. Pharmaceutical drugs kill far more people than street drugs. The msot common cause of death in the US is from suicide from taking pharmaceutical drugs.

My evidence shows that Bayer pharmaceuticals sold pharmaceutical drugs KNOWING they where contaminated with HIV. So thta proves they care more about profit. If they cared more about peoples lives they wouldn't have sold it would they?! OBVIOUSLY.

Your second point makes me laugh the most as the reason HIV is such a problem (especially in Africa) is due to Bayer pharmaceuticals. (As my evidence above points out) Luckily though they do supply medication for it as well..... Hmmmm :whistle:

Your evidence shows you don't think before you speak. Prescription drugs are bad because a pharmaceutical company sold contaminated products? Wonderful demonstration of logic there.
