Smart Drugs Should be Allowed

Students should be allowed to take “smart drugs” to boost their performance in exams, according to an academic.
In the not so distant future we see surgical implants that will “Increase a childs learning and retention” These implants will contain a mirco processor, memory, and open the possiblility for direct information downloads.  And as sure as this will occur, people will then be hacked by criminal elements as well as governmental agencies.  We see here erroneous information implants, false memory implants, and even data information implants seeking to blot out one’s faith and belief in God.  

This article speaks of the Journal of Medical Ethics – Ethics have long departed the cutting edge of the medical field in cloning, in euthanasia, in abortion, all of which will be supported some way in Obama’s final version of government health care.

We  recently commented on an article saying many sun-tan lotions contained nanobots, resulting in their presence throughout the bodies of those who use those products, more and more these nanobots will be used in peoples bodies to unclog artieries, regulate blood flow, remove plaque from the brain and who knows whatever else.  We see a great disaster coming in the near future as there will be unintended consequences for those who become hosts to this coming army of nanobots.

One passage in Revelation that comes to mind is concerning a people filled with violent pain that can not be relieved these seek to die but death is taken from them.

The use of drugs such as modafinil and Ritalin is no worse than sending children to a private tutor, said Vince Cakic, from the department of psychology at Sydney University.

The comments are made in an article in the Journal of Medical Ethics.

Some academics have claimed that smart drugs, or “nootropics”, which are often widely available over the internet, should be banned over long-term safety fears.

Mr Cakic said universities in the future may attempt to impose random urine tests to root out drug cheats.

But he insisted that doping had already failed to properly clean up sport and insisted a more liberal approach needed to be adopted in academia.

“Prohibiting nootropics would not even the playing field, because there never was an even playing field to begin with,” he said. “To be sure, nootropics would probably make an already uneven playing field more unfair, and one that is likely only to favour the wealthy who can afford to purchase them.

“Not only do the rich get richer, but in the future it seems that they might also get smarter. However, using unequal distribution to justify the prohibition of nootropics is akin to prohibiting private tuition, which also increases academic performance while exacerbating educational inequalities between social classes.”

He added: “If socioeconomic inequalities in education are readily tolerated by society, then it would be hypocritical to apply this criterion selectively to nootropics and not to other performance enhancing strategies.”

Stimulants are increasingly used by students in an attempt to improve their exam results.

Many of the drugs can be bought over the internet, allowing students to exploit them for their apparent ability to boost concentration.

But they can cause significant side effects.

Potential side effects of Ritalin include mood swings, increased heart rate, headaches, dizziness and insomnia.

Patients can also become hooked on the effects of smart drugs and find it difficult to wean themselves off them.

Earlier this year scientists at Bristol University warned that schools could have to provide the drugs to their pupils within a generation because they could become so widespread that poor children would lose out if they could not afford to buy them.
