Amen on that.If you have an issue with all the Ritalin and Adderall out there, the issue isn't with Big Pharma, its with doctors who prescribe too easily. And primarily its with the PARENTS who would rather drug their kids than deal with them. We are a country of weak-minded, victim mentality, blame-seeking people. We would rather blame everything and everyone for our own shortcomings rather than deal with them ourselves.
And with regard to Ritalin/Adderall - it's not only the parents though, it's teachers as well. Lots of teachers pressure parents into medicating their children. Now I'm not saying the parents are victims, they can push back - but generally parents tend to trust what professionals are telling them. I've seen that first-hand through family members and co-workers. Though not everyone caves into medicating on a whim.
