And by over the counter… I mean from student to student. Hey, our generation isn’t called Generation Rx for nothing. When I Googled ‘adderall’ under the ‘news’ tab, I noticed that every result came from a college newspaper (Duke, Michigan State, Oklahoma State, Loyola Chicago, etc.)
It’s finals time again, and that means only one thing…. STUDY DRUGS FOR ALL!
- Library for 10+ hours- check
- 300/400 pages read- check
- one term paper completed- check
- Crashing hard after the study aid wears off- check
- Stomach ache– check
As much as I am a supporter for maintaining your 4.0 GPA through honest hard work… modern medicine amazes me. I know more people who have experimented with Adderall, and medications like it, than people who haven’t… and personally, I don’t think that’s a good thing.
As I’m sure everyone either knows or has heard, Adderall is as easy to buy as Red Bull. I guarantee you can find someone to buy it for as little as $5 within 3 phone calls to friends. Once you pop in a study drug like Adderall (from what I hear at least) you can say goodbye to a night of shot-gunning Red Bulls and Monsters, popping caffeine pills, shots of espresso every hour or so, and not remembering anything you are studying because the only thing you’re concentrating on is how tired you are.
Adderall has become such a common thing for college students to have… people are starting to forget its original purpose… its always been meant for chronic procrastinators who have one night to research for/write their 30 pg. term paper, right?
