Drugs to Increase Endurance, Ethical?

            Is it ethical to give workers medicine to enhance their focus and endurance to better production rates? CBC reports that scientists and ethicists in the UK are examining this issue, and holding a round table discussion to determine how these drugs can be used to enhance attention span and memory. The report notes that College students already abuse drugs such as Ritalin, which is used to treat attention deficit disorder, as an aid to studying. It has also been reported that athletes have employed high-tech prostheses to become highly competitive in events.
