Yes, this happens today. Not very often to affluent families who can afford
private doctors and lawyers, but it does happen to kids whose families can't
work the system. Also, a school or government MD can prescribe drugs for
the school to administer. I have also heard of schools telling parents that
they HAVE to get their doctor to prescribe adhd medication (which is illegal
but does that stop them?).
