Pharmas for the children?

One of the greatest hypocrisies of the WOsD is the premise that it's about protecting children. With about 1 in 100 preschoolers being prescribed Ritalin it seems to me our children need be protected from the dealers of legal pharmaceuticals.

I've never heard of a dealer of illegal drugs selling to a two year old. Yet prescribing a strong antipsychotic to an infant is a legal "off the label" use for ADHD. Even with known adverse side effects. Who is our government really protecting? Children or pharma corps profits?
