What happened to getting grades on your own merit and hard work? Taking a prescription like Adderall without a medical diagnosis to enhance your mental processes is living a lie. How much different is to take this drug versus heroin, cocaine or any other illegal drug? College is a learning experience not just an exercise in cramming work into 1 day and getting an A. The drug helps the person to focus on task at hand and blocks out distractions. I personally find that distractions help me write better, I often walk away from the writing or studying , take a breather and then return to the task refreshed. Organization and not procrastinating is my key to doing well in college. I can be naive at times but it's frightening to me to realize there are writer, authors, politicians?, doctors? and other professionals controlling our society taking illegal substances!
