Foer and Adderall
Being a college student, I have heard of many peers taking Adderall in order to stay up all night and get weeks worth of homework done in one sitting. On the other hand, I have a brother with ADHD who was prescribed Adderall when he was in middle school. I think the drug can do great things for people that have ADHD or other focusing issues, but it can also help those who were not prescribed it. I do not thing it is a big deal because it has very few negative effects but it should not be used for the wrong reasons. Everyone has their own opinion on the issues, probably based off how it effects them and whether they liked it or not. The drug can have negative effects, as is the case with almost every drug, whether it was prescribed to you or not. I do not think the craze with taking Adderall to get through college is a big deal, especially when there are so many other drug issues today, especially in college.
