This is the exact ignorance that gave us the War on Drugs

People commit crimes, not drugs.

In the progressive era, the drug warriors demonized cocaine as "causing blacks to rape white women." They blitzed the public with anti-drug propaganda just like the anti-psychiatry people are doing today. Cocaine didn't cause rape just as SSRIs don't cause murder.

It is so disappointing to see "libertarians" joining this prohibition movement.

**Multiple downvotes for stating an obvious fact. HYPOCRITES. Hyprocrite progressives are the loudest voices in the anti-psychiatry movement. BAN THE THINGS I HATE, LEGALIZE THE THINGS I LIKE. Hypocrites. Ban pills, not guns, they say. Well how about this- I use drugs, but I don't own a gun. I have never harmed another human being in my life, but many gun owners have. Let's ban guns, not pills!"
