Very worthwhile watch, 31 May 2009
Author: milpool21 from Australia

This is a must watch in our current world. Most people simply don't have the where-with-all to question a doctor, when they most certainly should. Drugs for mental illnesses is a supremely important issue that a lot of us face today. The sheer number of people that these drugs kill and severely hamper the lives of each year is staggering.

Making a killing covers a lot of ground, and is absorbing the whole way through.

Question everything: especially religion, government and your parents.
