Drug-induced Insanity: Probable Cause of Mass Shootings?

People in a psychotic state can do unspeakable things. It is time we ascertained which substances are causing these outrages.”
— DeForest Rathbone

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA, October 5, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- As authorities seek answers for the senseless mass murder committed in Las Vegas last weekend, drug prevention activists demand hair analysis of the perpetrator. The Las Vegas shooter’s hair contains evidence of any mind-altering substance that may have induced his irrational desire to harm innocent victims.

A hair drug test can verify any alcohol, prescription or illicit drug use during the past 3 months. It provides documentation for longer term and repeated drug use that is vitally important to assessing a person’s lifestyle or addiction and any known side effects which could lead to dangerous behaviors, violent psychosis, and crimes. Among the drugs that can be tested for are marijuana, opioids, benzodiazepines, and synthetics.

Hair drug testing has successfully been used for decades in many schools and businesses throughout the nation. Such tests can tell not only what substance was used but when and how often. It takes less than 24 hours for a negative and 4-5 business days for confirmation of a positive.

DeForest Rathbone, chairman of NICAP explains, “We believe that such tests have the capability to explain the rise in mass murders, nearly all of which seem to have the common factor of the killers’ psychosis-inducing drug use. People in a psychotic state can do unspeakable things. It is time we ascertained which substances are causing these outrages.”

This type of drug testing is very reasonable in cost, and can be used as evidence in a court of law.

Hair analysis for drugs promises to finally reveal the "inexplicable cause" of so many mass murders today. But such definitive assessment of the mass murderer’s use of psychosis-inducing drugs will not be done unless hair drug analysis is routinely administered as a forensic tool. NICAP urges citizens and politicians to demand that drug testing be done on the hair of the Las Vegas perpetrator and that the results be made public.

National Institute of Citizen Anti-Drug Policy (NICAP) was founded in by DeForest Rathbone to represent the interests of parents and children who have been impacted by addiction and early death due to drug abuse. Deforest is a 35 year veteran of the Nancy Reagan inspired “Parents Movement.”
