Neuropharmacology goes mainstream

Overheard on MTV today in a Pop-Up Video-style commentary:

(In background, video for “Ohio is For Lovers” by Hawthorne Heights.)

College student 1: They are kind of like the Goo Goo Dolls on speed.

College student 2: I have to disagree with you there. I think they are actually more like Dashboard Confessional on healthy doses of Adderall.

This entry isn’t really about science, but I just thought it was interesting to see the reference to “healthy doses of Adderall” (emphasis is mine). This certainly lends credence to the idea that Adderall is being treated more of as a lifestyle drug than potentially a drug of abuse. Interesting.
