The drug in question improves a person's performance
Good point. So, maybe they're planning on using it for soldiers and fighter pilots?
I posted some information recently that stated within a released document that they are wanting to replace soldiers with drones because there is a lower number of mistakes with robots.
It would be really scary if our military was composed of robots, drones, and soldiers on meds that make them more skilled and accurate.
American scientists have drawn up plans for a new generation of nuclear-powered drones capable of flying over remote regions of the world for months on end without refuelling.
."It's pretty terrifying prospect," said Chris Coles of Drone Wars UK, which campaigns against the increasing use of drones for both military and civilian purposes. "Drones are much less safe than other aircraft and tend to crash a lot. There is a major push by this industry to increase the use of drones and both the public and government are struggling to keep up with the implications."

If racism is reduced by Propranolol, then your opinions based on emotion (which they ALL are) will be reduced as well. This soldier, speaking out about what he's been ordered and forced to do during the "War on Terror" would no longer be speaking out...his terrible memories would be suppressed and replaced with neutral or even good memories.
I laugh at people who think pharmaceutical companies care for them. The truth is, your local herion dealer down the road probably would care for you more than these people and I'm not being sarcastic in any way when I say that.
