   - Numerous well respected authorities have found no scientific evidence to suggest any causal link between video games and real world violence. 00:03:18;

We agree.
- There are 3,000 individuals suffering with "First Episode Psychosis" known as 
the "Enhanced Programming for Early Psychosis”  - (EPEP). 02:00:00;
We didn't know. 
 -  Each EPEP two-year program costs over $28,000 and serves only 750 of the 3,000 individuals.
We didn't know. 
-  The program doesn’t work as a cure – not elimination of the psychosis but treatment of the psychosis. 00:51:14;
We didn't know.
-  It costs the State of Texas $200,000 per 800 juvenile inmate to incarcerate.. 01:24:56.

Side Note: Many psychiatric diagnoses are assessed and patients are prescribed drugs  based solely on observations per the Psychiatric DSM-5 Codes.
We want individuals tested for physical root causes that manifest as psychiatric dysfunction prior to psychiatric medication being prescribed and paid for by Texas Medicaid.
