      Jeremy Lajoie

      Manchester, NH

We, the undersigned, request that RSA 135-C:27 be repealed, or otherwise modified, such that those passing through the Mental Health System may no longer be confined against their will, those who are confined, not because they *have* committed a crime, but because they *may* commit a crime.

We, the undersigned, request that RSA 135-C:27 be repealed, or otherwise modified, such that one may longer be confined for a period of months, or years, for declining the treatment being offered, treatment which, it has been expressly indicated to be detrimental towards health.

The contents of this address may shed some light on the issue, particularly the main body of the testimonial and Appendix B:

      Clozapine is known from a chemical standpoint to be highly nucleophilic, which means it is prone to off-target effects. As a chemist, I believe antipsychotic drugs behave differently in every patient and if they are not working out for them, they should have the right to refuse the drug.
