To Whom It May Concern:

Bringing pharmaceutical products and advertising under the law is long overdue.

My family and I are outraged at the blatantly false advertising for pharmaceuticals, especially dangerous mental/emotional palliative drugs.

They are proven to be reliably dangerous and harmful to physical and emotional health. Their claims are based on "junk science", i.e., false and spurious claims wrapped in a shroud of "scientific" posturing.

Only the unscrupulous pharmaceutical company boards and employees, ill-advised practitioners, and those seeking to control and harm individuals...support these mistakenly-approved drugs.

Trusting people, who desire help in their lives, are being betrayed and harmed daily, especially children, (who are being increasingly targeted through educational and legislative channels), and adults viewing misleading advertising in the media.

Your support in bringing a complete halt to the introduction and marketing of dangerous drugs masquerading as helpful preparations ("anti- depressants", "mood elevators",remedies for never-substantiated "chemical imbalances") is needed in the must urgent way.

Please see to the charge you have been entrusted with: the uncompromised health and welfare of your constituents, free from dangerous drugs, and false, misleading advertising.
