I have spoken about this with my daughter and many of her friends who all attend different colleges. The kids were all remarkably frank with me. They said that most students in college have used stimulants at least once, and many do so regularly. Three of them admitted to making up symptoms to get a prescription for adderall. They said it was really easy, "Just talk about how distracted you feel in class or how you can't concentrate."
These are not wild kids. They were all high achieving, greatly involved students and athletes in high school and are all successful in college. I do believe this article is addressing a real problem that exists today.
