From The Washington Times:

…Two years ago, the International Chess Federation adopted the World Anti-Doping Agency’s universal drug code, subjecting chess players to the same standards as Olympic sprinters.

…While muscle-building drugs spawn home runs and congressional hearings, a coming era of cognitive enhancement promises boosted brains to rival baseball’s bulging biceps.

Picture a golfer who never gets nervous, a basketball player learning to shoot perfect free throws with the help of a pill. Can’t quite conceive it? Don’t worry – there may be a pill for that, too.
