Why your kid is drugged in school

The State Department of Education gets monies from the Federal Government (Disability) under a program called "IDEA" for each child diagnosed with a disability. A disability could be ADD/ADHD, Bi-polar disorder, Depression or any of the other mental diagnoses.

Who profits: The State Department of Education, the mental health and counseling Industry, the Pharmaceutical company and the money that is kicked back by lobbyists for politicians special interest and of course the legal profession.

All this at the cost of your child's Health and welfare.

Now, what do you think causes addiction? How about Reagan as the infant spitting up or mother breast feeding with residue of the mind drugs in her system. How about underground water contaminated by many people taken mind drugs in a geographic area. How about the mind drugs being turned on and off according their finances who go downtown to the dark alleys for a fix to compensate for loss of prescription.
