GHI03.01- Legal Drug Log Enforcement Law
Legal Draft for a Bill creating the "Legal Drug Log Enforcement" Law.
A draft for a federal, proactive, specific bill, proposing a preventive, pro-family "behavior related and/or highly addictive legal drug Log Enforcement" Law.
Among some other critical elements, it suggests the creation of a pro mental-health 'Para-Nurse' Drug Enforcement Log function, to be preventively entrusted to caregivers (usually family members) of severely mentally ill persons that should never have direct access to their own mood-related medication; in order to eyewitness and record the time, amount, type and context when each psychiatric medication is taken, without violating any right that adult patients may have, such as the ability to refuse medication.
We are convinced that several suicides and domestic violence cases are directly linked to subjective multi-doses or "cold-lapses" completely unknown to caregivers, doctors, and law enforcement agents. The creation of a specific subsidiary function (MH-Para-Nurse) that includes MHPN Assistants and Helpers (volunteers) will save many lives and drastically improve the safety and the well-being of many helpless families and communities currently oppressed by unbelievable suffering. The MHPN will ordinarily be a volunteer position, especially for those patients in condition to decide to cooperate. Medication discounts and payable therapeutic jobs should be available, whenever possible, to patients for whom the Log Report proves cooperation according to level 1 (no sabotage) or level 2 (constructive cooperation).
Many experts complain that the lack of medication compliance is a significant problem in the treatment of mental illness. However, finding an avenue for addressing this that balances individual rights with safety is a challenge.
Nevertheless, we are not going to run the risk of creating a potential bureaucratic nightmare that with time could become even worse than the illness itself. We want to craft a federal law that will facilitate a case by case, flexible service of love, focused on the family; not an enforced nor even a mandatory compliance, but a voluntary proactive and engaged constructive venue of communication under an enforced/enforceable indirect way to restrict access to medication, especially mood-related psychiatric or highly addictive legal drugs like OxyContin, Seconal, Fentanyl, Adderall, etc. The log will be digital or paper-based and will be used primarily for people who agree to participate, law enforcement officers in the event of a 911 incident, in addition to any other additional access mandated by a judge or doctor. Again, the focus is on the family and the long-term well-being and sacred dignity of the patient. We must find an urgent way to reduce legal drug overdoses, prevent record-related events, help to reduce legal drug-related domestic violence, relapses, divorce, etc. Upon acceptance, case by case, the patient can then enjoy a better, scrupulous, and high quality human rights compliance such as the Right to take only reduced doses or to refuse the medication to any extent, since the MH Para-Nurse, who is the drug inventory’s trustee, keeping all the enlisted patient’s pertinent medication in custody or under locked control, will log the event/decision and preventively warn family members to be prepared for probable consequences, prepare safe haven networks of support, and engage law enforcement mental health task forces, if necessary.
It is difficult to understand and accept how a civilized society like ours can invest and succeed so much in the pharmaco-scientific area related to mental illnesses knowing very well that the only practical difference between poison and medication is precisely the amount, the quantity, and the frequency, yet can not afford to have a common sense legislation such as this. Until then, our duty to realistically care for the severely mentally ill outside hospital facilities as much as possible, in a minimally responsible way, will remain stupidly "penny wise, but pound foolish."
