Wanna Join The Army? Not If You're On Psych Drugs

Uncle Sam wants you! Unless you're a Ritalin user, that is.

One of several things that will disqualify a young man or woman from military service is use of Ritalin or other psychiatric drugs. Other limitations include severely overweight, specific diseases such as asthma, or a criminal record.

That's interesting company for the Ritalin ban.

You may recall that one of the Columbine School shooters had tried to join the Army but had been rejected because of use of psych drugs.

The Army has the right idea. They avoided a person who was capable of shooting a room full of his friends, then himself. Now if the schools would get the right idea, they'd be safe. There is no place in them for kids who are put on these psychiatric drugs. These drugs are the primary source of the severe decline in safety and discipline in schools.
