Unbelievable but not surprising in this Corporocratic age of medicate first rather than solve problems with real solutions. Thanks Freya.

i wish they'd give those drugs to me. no backlash about drugging children and they'd make an old man happy.

I always have trouble with Change.org Their page does not display correctly and I can't get to the submit tab! I won't bother signing with them in the future.

Not only these poor kid are fed with junk food that probably causes some of their behavioral problems, but on top they are put on drugs to "quiet" them down. Outrageous.
