Librarians To Dispense Adderall During Finals Week
Obviously, librarians will not be dealing drugs, but I’m betting that some of you that read the title were excited at the convenience that that would offer. Let’s face it, Adderall is a commonly used prescription drug within college students by those with and without medical prescriptions for the drug.
Onward State obviously takes a no-tolerance stance to any sort of illicit drug use, but in this case, the odds are that there will be nothing to stop students from buying “Addys” from their friends to help them study for this coming finals week.
If you are one of these students, there are things you need to keep in mind. First off, Adderall is a combination of four different amphetamine salts and more literally “prescription speed.” You can read up on the side effects and medical information here at WebMD and read up on some more “underground” information and experiences with the drug at Erowid.
It may be called a “miracle study drug,” but it does not come without its side effects. It’s possible you wont be able to sleep, or you’ll become agitated more easily, and you’ll probably experience a great deal of appetite suppression and look like a crackhead. If you see the appetite suppression as an added bonus, remember this: last time science checked, eating is an essential part to virtually every function within your body, and by not doing so, you’re starving your body and brain. And during finals week, you’re going to need your brain. That’s why you bought the Adderall in the first place, right?
Anyways, preaching about anything does nothing, so if you take anything from this, read up on the facts before you pop a pill and head for the library. And see if you can get through the hell that is to come without a crutch, and you can give yourself a nice pat on the back afterwards.
