GENERAL
The advertisement of mind altering drugs such as Zoloft, Ritalin and Prozac should be curtailed. Not only do these drugs have very dire side affects that have been linked to suicidal and homicidal behavior but they are also routinely abused by street drug users. The FDA has already required a black box warning on many of these drugs which would back up the need to protect the public from misleading ads that disinform people as to the true nature of these drugs.
