So this morning I got an email from a friend linking to this YouTube video. It's a trailer for a documentary call The Marketing of Madness. From the trailer, looks like something I want to see, and something we should all probably see. It's about the pharmaceutical industry and the deception and unethical practices that occur, all in the name of pushing drugs to the masses.
War on drugs? We're losing... and it's big pharma that's winning.
I still wonder how and why such a benign natural substance like marijuana continues to be illegal (yet study after study, repeatedly show it's less damaging to human health and society than alcohol). What's even more upsetting is that our governments spend billions of our hard-earned tax dollars on its prohibition -- yet big pharma (subsidized by our tax dollars) gets away with murder...literally.
Pushing amphetamines to elementary grade students for ADHD? Rat poison for atrial fibrillation? ...I could write a novel on this crap, but just thinking about this destruction in the name of profit gives me a brain bubble.
If you've got time, google "Death by Medicine" and read the article. It provides statistics that show conventional medicine can realistically be considered the leading cause of death in the US. That's absolute bonkers, if not eye opening for those just waking up to this reality.
Anyway, click this link to watch the trailer on YouTube...The Marketing of Madness
