Far Out

WASHINGTON, Aug. 21 - Federal drug regulators have ordered that strong warnings be put on the labels of stimulants like Ritalin to caution against their use in adults or children with heart problems and to alert doctors that the drugs cause one child in a thousand to experience hallucinations.

With over 4 million children in the US now on Ritalin, 4000 children reacted to the news by staring blankly at their jello dessert and then asking their mom to take the worms out of their hair.

The drug problem in this country now comes complete with a prescription.

I don't know how true it is but I have heard a couple of times that some of the places were ritalin is prescribed the most is in upper income homes. The story implied that mommies don't want to deal with normal but rowdy kids. The only reason I give it any credit is that I meet just such a mommy a few years ago during a vacation in Hilton Head, SC. I know one person does not prove a point but she gave me the creeps tell saying how she needed it for her son because he distrubed her activities.
