One of my major interests when I joined the medical marijuana clinic was the overmedication and diagnosis abuse -- in my case especially -- of psychiatric patients who are summarily diagnosed and medicated over the course of an hour's visit or two with a total stranger. Often the wrong diagnosis and the beginning of a long complicated career of exprimentally bouncing from one pharmaceutical to another, not knowing in any case the long-term effect on any brain, but most certainly a small child's brain. Say a 2-year-old child, for instance. Much of the non-keep-it-comical writing I have been doing involves further research into this industrial phenomenon.
