  • If you can't remember, you shouldn't be held totally responsible

    If a person cannot remember, and it can be proven that their memory has been dampened by substances, then no they cannot be held totally accountable for things they did under such influence. This does not mean that drunk drivers should be able to get off for their actions, but that people and law enforcement must understand there is a difference between a fully cognizant person and someone under the influence, and that this does affect accountability.

  • There are potential benefits

    There are certainly possible abuses of proponolol, and of so many other chemicals and technologies that are available today; like other chemicals and technologies, the issue with proponolol are serious - but ultimate, the benefits for the survivors of childhood or adult traumas and those who have survivors guilt or hopelessness.
