Florida Senator Ronda Storms speaks out about child drugging

Senator Ronda Storms
Florida Senator Ronda Storms speaks out about child drugging.
Listen to a clip of FLORIDA ON THE LINE radio show here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuqRNRCX8Zc
with Host Margie Menzel
After the tragic death of seven-year-old Gabriel Myers in April, the Department of Children and Families began a review of children in state custody taking psychotropic drugs. In more than 16 percent of cases where children were given these drugs, DCF lacked the legal consent of a guardian or judge. Fifteen percent of Florida foster children are on one or more such drugs. Our guests include Sen. Ronda Storms, chair of the Senate Committee on Children, Families and Elder Affairs; Dr. Toni Appel, an attorney and neuropsychologist; and children's advocate Karen Gievers, also an attorney. A member of DCF's Gabriel Myers Task Force will also appear.

Two deaths and counting, Villamar and Myers. This doctor rarely sees his patients, nurses do.Punjwani, Compass Health Systems and Segal Institute should be investigated.
