Psychiatrists Drugging Children for Social Justice

It's the latest thing. Psychiatrists are now giving children in poor neighborhoods Adderall, a dangerous stimulant, by making false diagnoses of ADHD, or no diagnoses at all. Their aim? To "promote social justice," to improve academic performance in school.

The rationale is, the drugged kids will now be able to compete with children from wealthier families who attend better schools.

Leading the way is Dr. Michael Anderson, a pediatrician in the Atlanta area. Incredibly, Anderson told the New York Times his diagnoses of ADHD are "made up," "an excuse" to hand out the drugs.

"We've decided as a society that it's too expensive to modify the kid's environment. So we have to modify the kid," Anderson said.

It would be hard to find a clearer mission statement from a psychiatrist: mind control.

A researcher at Washington University in St. Louis, Dr. Ramesh Raghavan, goes even further with this chilling comment: "We are effectively forcing local community psychiatrists to use the only tool at their disposal (to "level the playing field" in low-income neighborhoods), which is psychotropic medicine."

So pressure is being brought to bear on psychiatrists to launch a heinous behavior modification program, using drugs, against children in inner cities.

It's important to realize that all psychotropic stimulants, like Adderal and Ritalin, can cause aggressive behavior, violent behavior.

What we're seeing here is a direct parallel to the old CIA program, exposed by the late journalist, Gary Webb, who detailed the importing of crack cocaine (another kind of stimulant) into South Central Los Angeles, which went a long way toward destroying that community.

It is widely acknowledged, and admitted in the Times article, that the effects of ADHD drugs on children's still-developing brains are unknown. Therefore, the risks of the drugs are great. At least one leading psychiatrist, Peter Breggin, believes there is significant evidence that these stimulants can cause atrophy of the brain.

Deploying the ADHD drugs creates symptoms which may then be treated with compounds like Risperdal, a powerful anti-psychotic, which can cause motor brain damage.

All this, in service of "social justice" for the poor.

And what about the claim that ADHD drugs can enhance school performance?

The following pronouncement makes a number of things clear: The 1994 Textbook of Psychiatry, published by the American Psychiatric Press, contains this review (Popper and Steingard):"Stimulants (given for ADHD) do not produce lasting improvements in aggressivity, conduct disorder, criminality, education achievement, job functioning, marital relationships, or long-term adjustment."

So the whole basis for this "social justice" program in low-income communities—that the ADHD drugs will improve school performance of kids and "level the playing field," so they can compete academically with children from wealthier families—this whole program is based on a lie to begin with.

Meddling with the brains of children via these chemicals constitutes criminal assault, and it's time it was recognized for what it is.

In 1986, The International Journal of the Addictions published a most important literature review by Richard Scarnati. It was called "An Outline of Hazardous Side Effects of Ritalin (Methylphenidate)" (v.21(7), pp. 837-841). Adderall and other ADHD medications are all in the same basic class; they are stimulants, amphetamine-type substances.

Scarnati listed a large number of adverse affects of Ritalin and cited published journal articles which reported each of these symptoms.

For every one of the following (selected and quoted verbatim) Ritalin effects, there is at least one confirming source in the medical literature:

Paranoid delusions

Paranoid psychosis

Hypomanic and manic symptoms, amphetamine-like psychosis

Activation of psychotic symptoms

Toxic psychosis

Visual hallucinations

Auditory hallucinations

Can surpass LSD in producing bizarre experiences

Effects pathological thought processes

Extreme withdrawal

Terrified affect

Started screaming



Since Ritalin is considered an amphetamine-type drug, expect amphetamine-like effects

Psychic dependence

High-abuse potential DEA Schedule II Drug

Decreased REM sleep

When used with antidepressants one may see dangerous reactions including hypertension, seizures and hypothermia


Brain damage may be seen with amphetamine abuse.

In what sense are the ADHD drugs "social justice?" The reality is, they are chemical warfare. Licensed predators are preying on the poor.

    As far as I can tell, psychiatrists have no ethics, or empathy. They want their place in medicine as legitimate scientists and practitioners whether they actually know what they're doing or not – and they DON'T in all but a few cases. They've done this for some time now, for one thing, and they've helped out in torture and in torture-based mind-control too with no moral qualms. If they were allowed I'm sure they'd casually cut around on people's brains just to see which part of it did what.

    Come to think of it, allopathic medicine is now exists to feed pharmaceuticals to patients forever, or to keep on cutting until they run out of patient to cut on and have to find another one. This way they can share the insurance money around until it runs out. Then, of course, the patient is thrown to the sidewalk no matter how sick or how much pain s/he's in. Medicine is a corporate gold-mine – as long as you don't give a damn about your patients. And too many don't. I understand the European doctors are appalled at the practices of American doctors. I understand. The Drug War has also warped the hell out of medicine.

    For Chronic Pain Patients, if surgery, therapy or exercise can't help, the last-ditch treatment – which is actually the FIRST treatment that should be used, the Medical Standard of Care – is opiates (the exact same molecule as endorphins made by the body), titrated to the pain. Pain that isn't controlled causes all sorts of damage, physical and otherwise, but with the DEA deciding that drugs plus money equals crime, so it's okay to lie like mad and set doctors up for convictions because they're doing their jobs – putting "pill mill docs" in prison along with their"addicted" patients. Though what they're doing is destroying pain patients AND legitimate, medically correct doctors. As far as the DEA is concerned, death by suicide, heart attack or stroke are the only "legitimate" options a pain patient has.

    About any aspect of medicine in America is damaging or deadly to the patients, but very lucrative for doctors.

    "Medical ethics" is now pretty much an oxymoron.

    Long term stimulant use such as Rittilan weakens the vascular system ultimately shorting the life of the individual. Our vascular systems, like other tissues in our bodies will repair themselves, however wear and tear, even at a young age will affect the individual for life. In the case of rittilan Et al, the effect is a shortened life. This is not speculation. The effect of cocaine usage on the vascular system are identical. The difference is that most cocaine users, use higher effective dosages so strokes and other complications develop much faster.

    The most insidious truths are that parents are shorting there childrens' lives and don't know it, and when death comes, it looks completely natural.

    I have had numerous conversations with MDs. And they know exactly what is happening. I always end the conversation with the question: would you give your child rittilian or another stimulant? The answer is always no.

    Reblogged this on AfterAmerica's Blog and commented:
    This is very disturbing. With almost 20% of Americans on one of these drugs, it is only a matter of time before people totally lose it. Why? Why does the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) put up articles about Zombies on their own web site. These drugs along with the radiation from Fukushima all over the Western Part of the USA are going to make people go nuts. That is my take on it.
