The American Academy of Pediatrics says that diagnoses of psycho-social problems among children over the past two decades have more than doubled. But a group calling itself Citizens Commission on Human Rights(CCHR), as well as the NAACP, say the psychiatric drugging of children is often subject to abuse. Both groups are pushing legislation to curb prescriptions of drugs to kids. NPR's Tavis Smiley discusses the issue with Fred Shaw, president of the Compton, Calif. NAACP and Cassandra Auerbach, director of CCHR in Los Angeles.
