Guardian UK reports:
"The government’s official experts on illegal drugs have been asked to look at whether intelligence-enhancing drugs, such as those used by students to boost performance in exams, should be banned."
" ‘Competitive use of cognitive enhancers raises many of the same issues as the use of performance-enhancing drugs in sport," said the report. "Their use could lead to problems of coercion, where there is pressure on individuals to take the drugs even if they do not wish to. Similarly, if such drugs were available to only a proportion of competitors, they could be seen as giving an unfair advantage, or to be a form of cheating.’ "
