July 2, 2016•41 min
In the late 60s and early 70's, the U.S. Government sprayed Agent Orange over the jungles of Southeast Asia with disastrous results to the health of our servicemen and women. Well, at about the time the government stop spraying Agent Orange on top of our soldiers heads, the U.S. Army developed a new drug designed to prevent malaria. The drug was called Mefloquin sold under the trade name Laraim. As it turns out, the drug is neurotoxin and has been linked to mental illness and, yet, some branches of the service still use it. Why? Lee interviews Dr. Tom Berger, journalist, Michael Volpe, and actress and model, Jackie Siebert about the terrible effects of the drug, Lariam. Lee and his guests discuss how U.S. Servicemen and women are quite literally loosing there minds, becoming homeless, ending up in jail and even committing, and there is a strong link between Lariam and these tortuous side effects.
