Right now the battle is in Australia, but the worldwide Aviation Authorities are definitely watching. They paved the way for legal use of Anti-Depressants which would have been unthinkable even 5 years ago..

Some have great, some have OK, some have worse, some none at all. Check out the site for more information if interested.
