It’s okay to hook people on anti-depressants, he says, but hooking them on a club drug, Special K, is another thing, er, not when he doesn’t acknowledge the addictive qualities of anti-depressants. The U of Miami should have followed Emory’s lead, and not hired this joker Nemeroff. We don’t need another drug company drug pusher telling us what drugs to push. Pushing drugs is problematic in itself.
