FDA Complicity

Psychostimulants, such as Ritalin, Concerta, and Focalin, are controlled substances because they are addictive--just like Cocaine.

They are all a variation of a class of drugs called methylphenidates. Like, amphetimines, methylphenidates are central nervous system stimulants...The methylphenidate class of drugs are controlled substances. They act on the brain in the same way as cocaine. These drugs are controlled because they have a great potential for abuse by people seeking to get high and because they can have short and long term deadly side effects.

Why does the FDA approve Class A addictive drugs for use in children and label them as "safe and effective? What is wrong with our regulatory agencies? To take discreet brown envelopes is one thing, to brazenly assist in the physical and mental drug degradation of our children is quite something else.

Who will hold these people accountable?
