Good video.  "Drugs" is a pretty broad category.  I trust plenty of drugs.  Even food has psychoactive properties in many cases.  As for commercially produced psychiatric medications, they definitely seem to help a lot of people.  They also seem to predispose others towards spree shootings.  There ought to be a way to tell who is who, but in practice the best doctors shoot upwards into coveted positions leaving only mediocrities practicing clinical medicine, so if there is a way to tell then the people actually qualified to do so are off doing more important things in most cases.
