Students staying up late to study is common on college campuses. Midnight trips to coffee shops and other caffeine runs happen frequently throughout the school year. However, many college students are turning to stronger energy sources to help stay awake, specifically the prescription drug Adderall.
Widely prescribed for Attention Deficit Disorder, Adderall is now being referred to on college campuses as the 'college crack' because of its growing use amongst students. Experts say students that abuse Adderall are unaware of the risks they are taking. Adderall is treated in the same class as drugs like cocaine and oxycodone and arrests related to it are considered a felony.
