Ethical To Drug Workers?

Is it ethical to give medical treatments to workers that help them concentrate and work longer hours? We already know such artificial enhancements already exist. For example, some college students take Ritalin to study even though it used to treat attention deficit disorder. The issue is whether it is ethical. The scientists and ethicists in the United Kingdom are examining that issue according to CBC reports. Imagine if this ethical, what is next? A drug that prevents you from sleeping so you can work nonstop? Where do we draw the line?
