There's a sickness in the class room and teacher's pleased with the infection. Hand a shiny apple over to the new face of discipline--to medicate and control. What's lost in terms of creativity is a price gladly sacrificed for a drooling obediance and a system of raised hands and single file lines in the best of the class this year. Instant relief is an instant excuse with no problems solved but the subject subdued. Frantic parents with trembling hands will grasp at whatever random solutions are offered presenting an easy and cost efficient solution to the many inconveniences of the unhappy child. And while a nervous calm hangs with all the integrity of a frayed thread, at least this way a solution has been found and the neighbors won't talk. Pushed as a dose, the priority is parent's convenience and not child's pain. There s no easy solutions for what's not manufactured or sold on the shelves. Now it's on your tongue, controlling thoughts under the guise of your health. If they gave you something would you take it? When they give you something will you take a dose?

    General CommentExpiration: The abuses of behaviour-modifying drugs are well-documented and as American as apple pie and heartattacks. Chemical treatment for young people who fail to fit into the postcard image of the American family is irresponsible, deplorable, dangerous--and increasingly popular.How many of your peers are prescribed drugs to control their behavior?
    (At Beau's request, we have included this alternative perspective to this important issue: "i'm not crazy... you're the one that's crazy..."--Suicidal Tendencies, 1984).
