Shocking Stats Point to Mass Drugging of Kids on Medicaid
By Ben Bartee - February 22, 2024

Originally published via Armageddon Prose:

American children are fucked with a capital F — whether literally by the LGBTQ+++™ groomers with a voracious appetite for scalping their genitals or figuratively by the pharmaceutical industry.

All the while, gleeful Boomers point the generational finger and laugh at the plight of Zoomers — as if they didn’t create the conditions that produced their degeneration in the first place, as if the progeny of Western civilization spontaneously sprang from the ether psychologically crippled.

Via The New York Times:

Growing numbers of children and adolescents are being prescribed multiple psychiatric drugs to take simultaneouslyaccording to a new study by researchers at the University of Maryland. The phenomenon is increasing despite warnings that psychotropic drug combinations in young people have not been tested for safety or studied for their impact on the developing brain…

The study, published Friday in JAMA Open Network, looked at the prescribing patterns among patients 17 or younger enrolled in Medicaid from 2015 to 2020 in a single U.S. state that the researchers declined to name. In this group, there was a 9.5 percent increase in the prevalence of “polypharmacy,” which the study defined as taking three or more different classes of psychiatric medications, including antidepressants, mood-stabilizing anticonvulsants, sedatives and drugs for A.D.H.D. and anxiety drugs.”

It’s frankly downright amazing that this story slipped through the NYT editorial board, not to mention the censors at the AMA. One must wonder how long the authors of either the NYT piece above or the JAMA study below are going to keep their jobs.

Via Journal of the American Medical Association:

“This is a sequential, annual, cross-sectional study using Medicaid eligibility files and fee-for-service and managed care medical encounter claims from 2015 to 2020 from a single US state. For each annual cohort, we included youths who were 17 years or younger, had received at least 1 pharmacy claim for psychotropic medication, and had 90 days or more of continuous Medicaid enrollment…

Psychotropic polypharmacy was significantly more likely among youths who were disabled (AOR, 3.68; 95% CI, 3.34-4.05) or in foster care (AOR, 3.31; 95% CI, 2.93-3.74) relative to youths in the low-income group…

Individuals who identified as other races (including individuals identifying as American Indian, Asian, Hispanic, or Pacific Islander, or other races) (AOR, 0.54; 95% CI, 0.50-0.59) had significantly lower odds of psychotropic polypharmacy than White individuals*.”

*And there you have it: the psychosis of the white liberal mother on full quantitative display. Non-white parents still, at least statistically, have some modicum of common sense and well-deserved skepticism of the pharmaceutical industry.

The Anthony Fauci-worshipping class of The View-consuming wine moms, respecters of The Science™? Not so discerning.
