GENERAL
I do not feel that medication should be allowed to be promoted in the media. Most medications have too many negative side effects and too many people are on them. Something is terribly wrong when the majority of our society is on medication. This goes for anti-depressants, in particular. I am so tired of being bombarded with advertisements telling me that if I'm feeling down I should down a pill to make me happy. The side effects of anti-depressants are scary. Why on earth would our society be encouraged to take dangerous drugs such as anti-depressants? The majority of women killing their children and our children killing other children stem from people taking anti-depressants. Stop glorifying this, please.
