THOSE WHO OPPOSE SCIENTOLOGY
When it was over, the commitment section of the bill was deservedly dead, leaving merely an act to authorize mental health funding to the territory of Alaska.
A wounded psychiatry struck back, this time utilizing the FDA as its main battering ram.

A veritable beehive of activity took place, with letters and meetings between interested psychiatric parties; the Department of Justice; the Washington, DC, police department; the United States Post Office; the IRS; the AMA of course; and even the US Armys Criminal Investigation Command all continuously linked and regularly prodded by a now extremely nervous psychiatry.
