Farmer/Veteran - My "I Don't Kill People" Pills - Clip

Clip: Season 18 Episode 19 | 2m 4s

In this excerpt from the Independent Lens film Farmer/Veteran, combat veteran Alex goes over all the pills prescribed for physical and mental pain."These are my 'I don't kill people' pills," he says, meds for sleeplessness, anxiety, and numerous other afflictions. It looks like a ton of drugs but, he insists, "it's better than the alternative. Locking me up or sitting on a tower with a rifle."
