CCHR, concerned that most parents and consumers are unaware of the risk of homicide and suicide connected with these drugs, has launched a striking series of three PSAs warning of these side effects. The PSAs can be viewed at [http://www.cchr.org/psas/]. CCHR hopes that these PSAs serve to inform the public about the dangers of these drugs and encourage support for a federal investigation into the link between these drugs and senseless violence.
