One aspect of school shootings that never gets discussed is how often the shooters were on psychiatric drugs that have violent side effects.
We keep hearing about the supposedly ultra powerful gun lobby. But the pharma lobby is much larger and stronger. That’s probably precisely why nobody talks about it.
The Highland Park shooting wasn’t a school shooting but what are the chances the killer wasn’t on something? Or probably a bunch of things. What are the chances he wasn’t a habitual pot user? Very low, I’d say.
