Prescription drug vending machines now being installed on college campuses across America

Prescription drugs
(NaturalNews) The total insanity of over-medication in America has reached a new low as Arizona State University has installed a prescription drug vending machine called InstyMeds.

American college students -- who are already the most over-medicated population on the planet -- now have an even easier way to pollute their brains with SSRI drugs, antidepressants, antipsychotics and prescription "speed" amphetamines which are routinely abused by students for final exam cram study sessions.

"School officials didn't specify exactly what kind of drugs will be available in the machine, but said it would contain 50 medications that are most commonly prescribed to college students," reports CBS News. [1]

"You know, the things that you'd like to have right now to feel better," said InstyMeds Vice President Bob Bang, according to CBS News.

No doubt if cocaine were somehow patented by Glaxo Smith Kline, there would also be cocaine vending machines on college campuses by now, too, and marketed as a "performance booster" for students.

I don't assign any particular blame to the InstyMeds machine company, by the way. The machine looks like a competent invention to bypass the usual inefficiencies found in most pharmacy operations. The real problem with medications in America is found across the culture, in the quack science corruption and criminality of the drug industry, the "give me a pill, doc!" patient mindset, and the "quick fix" mentality where people think they can pop a pill to solve a problem.

Check out the Instymeds website for information on their invention, which technically could be used to dispense all sorts of things that are far more useful for student health -- such as vitamin D! Why don't universities install nutritional products vending machines to actually support cognitive function and immune function among students?

Big Pharma to sweep through universities

Big Pharma has already infiltrated and dominated medical schools and "science" journals. Drug company interests also completely dominate the mainstream media and government health care decision makers. Now they're going to get their hooks into college campuses all across the country where students can be trained to believe that life isn't complete without a prescription medication in their hands.

These pharma drugs are so safe that students can be dosed with three, five or even ten at a time, we're told. And yet the drugs are so dangerous that "the medication is secure in the 1,500-pound, 'vault-like machines' that have remote alarms in response to any tampering," reports ABC. Wouldn't want any students looting the machine and selling those drugs on their own, you see. That would be "drug dealing."

When a student sells amphetamines to another student, that's a felony crime, you see. But when a vending machine sells amphetamines to the same exact student by prescription, that's called "evidence-based medicine."

Arizona State University is the second university in America to install the prescription drug vending machine, and many more are in the works. Seriously, is "easier access to more meds" really the answer to student health?

"Serving the health-care needs of our students is still our highest priority," remarked Allan Markus, director of ASU Health Services, when the campus closed its pharmacy. And yet, I'm willing to bet nobody at ASU Health Services ever bothered to tell students why they need to boost their intake of vitamin D.

In fact, if a vitamin vending machine were installed on campus, it would no doubt generate outrage and complaints from all the drug company reps and the doctors they routinely bribe to keep pushing their poisons onto students, pregnant women, babies and the elderly.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose descendents include Africans and American Indians. He self-identifies as being of American Indian heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
