Casey Schwartz, “Generation Adderall”

Casey Schwartz, “Generation Adderall,” New York Times Magazine (October 16, 2016). “Adderall has now become ubiquitous on college campuses, widely taken by students both with and without a prescription. Black markets have sprung up at many, if not most, schools. In fact, according to a review published in 2012 in the journal Brain and Behavior, the off-label use of prescription stimulants had come to represent the second-most-common form of illicit drug use in college by 2004. Only marijuana was more popular.”
