Drug testing run amok

This is why we need lawyers. Secretly dosing unsuspecting soldiers with potent forms of LSD is wrong and these men deserve to be compensated for being treated as human guinea pigs without their informed consent. And that's apparently the least harmful substance they were subjected to. According to the article, "Between 1943 and 1989 thousands of healthy young men were tested with a variety of drugs and gasses."

Am I the only one that sees the irony in governments arresting people who willingly take drugs on the basis of public safety, while at the same time administering drugs secretly to unknowing soldiers and then sending them off on holiday? [hat tip Vig]
