Aderall and Ritalin-Steroids for the mind?

As a keynote business speaker and sports psychologist, I look for stories that I can tell at my seminars and to my clients. Here is one: On the show 60 minutes, they did a story in which college students are using drugs for ADHD such as Adderall and Ritalin to focus better. These drugs are stimulants which can make some people focus better. But is it fair? This is like some athletes doing anabolic steroids while others are not. Colleges should begin to think about banning Adderall and Ritalin, and perhaps random drug testing of college students for such drugs. That would be very difficult, but if we do nothing at all. we may seem an epidemic of drug users who use Ritalin and Adderall. Do we really want this?
