Psychotropic driving and the media

Until there is a law made that there can be no advertising of pharmaceutical drugs in the media, the media will not print anything about people being forced against their will to take harmful drugs.
It took a long time for cigarette advertising to be banned and it was banned because non-smokers were being forced to smoke and getting sick from the fumes.
It also took a long time for cigarette packaging to be clearly labelled. Now it is and the community is aware and protected to a certain degree from having to passively smoke in enclosed areas.
I don’t view alcohol as an advertising problem, because no one is being forced to drink it. However, there are awareness campaigns about drink-driving and binge drinking.
There are no campaigns about warning people to never operate machinery or drive while on psychiatric medication. There is a small warning on the label, but the prescribing doctor rarely mentions that. So there are people out there unintentionally causing a harm to themselves and others, because of the psychiatric script the are taking. There’s not even any policing of this. Diabolical.
What makes psychiatric drugs even worse, is that those who refuse to take it are forced to, under Community Treatment Orders. They are forced to be harmful to themselves and others by psychiatrists when they previously were not.
I remember an interview with Britney Spears crying about her life problems. No doubt after that or around that time she was prescribed an anti-depressant and that was the reason she kept bumping into other cars. It’s possibly the cause of many traffic accidents deemed ‘accidents’ when really the prescribing doctor and government that forces medicines upon people are to blame.
So, next time you’re involved with a traffic accident, find out if the person was taking any psychiatric drugs and then, if they driver cries poor, you’ve got some people with money you can reap from.

Artist's Description

Why isn’t psychotropic driving being policed when the pharmecutical companies are so aware of the dangers they put on their packets: ‘May cause drowsiness, if effected do not operate dangerous machinery or drive’?
