[ExI] does the pedal meet the medal?

Is it possible to get some of the more promising cognitive drugs out  
there today like CX717?  Yes I realize it is officially early in the  
official cycle.  But by the time the "official" cycle is done and it  
is approved "officially" for strictly non-enhancement use only as per  
usual I will have experienced several years of lower memory and  
concentration that I could otherwise have along with many tens of  
millions of other boomers.   What can be done?    Not 10 years from  
now if then but now or as close to it as possible?    Can we do  
nothing but talk and hope to get enough influence some day to  
influence the "official line"?  I don't think we will ever get there.   
Not in this country where even something as no-brainer as stem cell R  
& D (or even R only) has to battle like mad.   So what is to be done?
