"Using Drugs To Rein In Boys"

I'm one of those who view with alarm the modern practice of medicating
our young people.  The myth of "Attention Deficit Disorder" is
pernicious and evil.  We spend billions of dollars warning children
about the dangers of drugs while we often require them to be medicated
to continue in school. The resulting message is clear: "There is a
drug for every problem."
