Subject: RE: BS: The Drugging of our Children
Two side-effects of Ritalin:

- it stunts growth - nobody knows why, but kids on long-term Ritalin end up substantially shorter than they would otherwise.

- a lot of kids don't take it themselves and prefer to sell it on the playground drugs market.

The first is not that serious - better be short than stupid - and the second is manageable with some effort, so neither is decisive.
