It's okay in moderation. It does affect the brain though, to claim otherwise is just being stubborn. You get high, of course it affects your brain.

Your friend sounds like a pothead.

Quoting Cassie♥:" anything that alters your mind is not good for your brain development. Especially if your under 25."


i think that's a HUGE oversimplification.
first of all, what do you mean by "alter" ? all kinds of things "alter" you in all kinds of ways, not all of them bad
plus, some stuff can be excellent for your brain, under or over 25.
adderoll for example can help you focus and learn lots more

Lol, Adderall is a terrible drug with awful side effects.



And "learn lots more?" I'm sorry but are you ten?

I don't think you are using the term "panic attack" correctly.

Most drugs have terrible side effects, but that doesn't mean they're not beneficial.

I absolutely despise that drug.



Well, maybe more the doctors who prescribe it to perfectly healthy children and turn them into mindless zombies. :x

Sure, it's over-prescribed, but it does have a time and a place. My FIL has adult ADHD and can't function without it. He can't focus at all. It's bad.

Learn lots more. What's wrong with that? It's grammatically correct, isn't it?
You can learn. Or, you can learn lots more, and quicker.
Adderoll helps you do that.
I don't know what your beef is with it. Nor am talking about little kids using it. I'm talking about a drug, that has a mind altering effect, that makes people more focused, more productive, more efficient, better learners, students and workers.
The fact that it's so popular among college students and finance workers speaks to the truth of what i'm saying.

... wow, Adderall does not help you "learn more." It is not this amazing pill that makes you smarter or retain more information, it's for people with legitimate attention/hyperactivity issues. People in college take it so they can stay awake and cram, it doesn't make them smarter. They are abusing it. :?

If you vape it there it isn't harmful at all. Smoking anything is not the greatest thing for your lungs.

Adderall is legalized speed. I've taken it recreationally before and didn't sleep for 36 hours. Nasty little drug if you don't actually need it.



As for marijuana, I LOVE IT. I just recently started vaping for insomnia and anxiety. This is way better than any pharmaceutical. And I like that I'm putting something natural as opposed to synthetic in my body.

agree...
my son has adhd and odd, it used to take 3-4 hours a day to do homework, now with adderall, he's done in 40 mins and that includes 20 mins reading.. we wouldn't have been able to even get him into counseling for the odd, he even tells me he feels better now,



with every RX drug if it's prescribed for right reasons, the benefits of the drug out weighs the side effects and risks...
