Ethical Situation: Students often obtain Adderall in times of exams to help focus and this week, my sister was warning me to refuse if I was offered. So my ethical situation is: Is the use of non-prescribed Adderall considered cheating?
List of things I need to research/learn about:
Students: Why students take Adderall?
What is the prescription of Adderall for?
How students obtain Adderall?
Doctors: How do they prescribe Adderall?
The health effects of taking unprescribed or unneeded Adderall?
School: What’s VCU’s code about Adderall?
What benefits does Adderall give to students that go against the honor code?
Adderall: How is it made and how has it been used?
