NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – New York’s senior senator wants colleges to come back from summer break with a plan on how to deal with abuse of prescription ADHD pills.
Sen. Charles Schumer, speaking from his Midtown office on Sunday, said up to 35 percent of all college kids report using stimulants like Adderall and Ritalin as a study tool.
“That’s sort of academic doping,” said Schumer. “There are better ways to pull an all-nighter and stay up. There’s coffee, there’s things like NoDoz.”
