    Know More About Drugs, the group behind the billboards and a slick social media campaign, bills itself as an “alliance of doctors, parents & child advocates who believe parents have the right to be given factual info about prescribed psychotropic drug risks.” But while the ads take a public service tone, and the group’s website links to the Food and Drug Administration's database on medication side effects, BuzzFeed News has learned the campaign is fully funded by a celebrity Scientologist, and many of the people involved have connections to the church’s infamous advocacy against psychiatry.

    Scientology takes a position that mental illness diagnoses are a hoax and treatment with medication is abusive. Nancy Cartwright, the actor best known as the voice of Bart Simpson and a Scientologist who’s been involved in the church’s anti-psychiatry advocacy, told BuzzFeed News she founded the Know More About Drugs campaign because she’s passionate about issues around prescription drugs.

    Another front. Hopefully people will check.

    Scientology is good to team with people with genuine concerns. They provide means and let these people do the work.
