(at around 46 mins) Dr. Peter Venkman claims that he has doctorates in psychology and parapsychology. Later in the movie (at around 1h 2 mins), he says that he sedated Dana Barrett/Zuul with Thorazine. Doctors of psychology, or parapsychology for that matter, are not MD's and so are not authorized to prescribe or administer drugs, especially a controlled substance such as Thorazine. However, someone as clearly immoral as Venkman would do so regardless of his credentials.
