Trending Now: Study Drugs In The Classroom

-

A national survey on drug use and health report found full-time college students were twice as likely to have used Adderall non-medically as their counterparts who were not full-time students.

Students say they take these stimulants for the "right reasons," to be more productive in classes and to stay afloat in the sea of intense competition.

Yet these drugs are schedule 2 substances with a high potential for abuse.

In fact, the drug enforcement administration lists them right next to cocaine, meth and morphine.

Short-term adverse consequences include sleep difficulties, restlessness, headaches, irritability and depressed feelings.

Researchers say the toughest part in convincing students to say no to these drugs is the effectiveness.
