    I'm not surprised to hear this, presciption drugs are being abused more by young people than hard drugs like crack and heroin.

    There is now a " trend" going on of parents getting their kids ADHD/ADD drugs and selling them to college students to make a buck. Some of these are:

    Adderall and Adderall XR
    Concerta
    Dexedrine
    Focalin and Focalin XR
    Metadate CD and Metadate ER
    Methylin
    Ritalin, Ritalin LA


    They have the opposite effect on adults then they do on children.
