Mind Hacks - Mind Enhancing Drugs and the Future
"What happens when the random drug test is checking to make sure you're taking the drugs you're supposed to be?" - David Pescovitz.
I'm sitting in the ETech Mind Hacks session listening to a bunch of smart people talking about the future of mind hacking, which sounds like a future of pill popping and analysis. This after I find out from a Jack FM commercial that I can piss test my kid for drugs with the $20 First Test Home Drug Test kit from CVS Pharmacy. David's question raises an interesting observation about the types of performance enhancement we may be required to use in the future.
A home drug test raises questions about what kind of relationships people in the United States have with their kids. Or possibly it suggests parents will better prepare their kids for the real world by training them to learn how to beat drug tests at a younger age.
