(NaturalNews) Just when, as a parent, you think you’ve got this drug thing with your kids handled, they come up with something else to put themselves at risk and make you begin worrying about them all over again.
The most recent trend now, according to reports, is for students to snort – yes, snort – attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) drugs before taking academic exams, not for the high necessarily but to get a better score.
In schools all across the country, students bent on getting better scores on SAT exams and others are snorting ADHD amphetamines like Adderall before tests to help them focus, as well as during late-night study sessions and other times when they are preparing for a test.
The drug does more than just help jolt them awake in the mornings as they got ready to take the make-or-break marathon college preparatory tests; it gives them a laser-like focusing ability that is just right for that kind of situation.
And worse, Big Pharma and the nation’s healthcare industry is playing right along.
The pills are all over the place
“Everyone in school either has a prescription or has a friend who does,” one student recently told The New York Times.
