Ritalin - Not Just For The Unruly Homeroom?

The BBC has an interesting piece on the potential use of Ritalin as a functional aid to healthy people.

The main thrust of the article is that since Ritalin has no negative impact on healthy people, it is unethical to block its use. In the UK use without a prescription could lead to 14 years in jail.

The reality is that we are about to enter an era where new synthetic drugs, with no side effects could become available - effective drugs that do not endanger the user. The history of humanity has been to restrict such use, but we may be facing a new era.

Next stop Ritalin Tea? Its no longer an impossibility...
