Adderall can be used to study later. to party
longer and .. for many UK students to get a

' much-needed boost dui'ing the final few weeks of

the semester.

The prescription medication has become a tool
that didn‘t exist a generation ago for students. ac—
cording to campus doctors who study
the drug.

Students use Adderall to reduce
fatigue. increase reading compre-
hension. retain interest in study ~
ing. increase cognitive skills
and remember more information.
said Alan DeSantis. a UK eoiiiii‘iuiiica--
tions faculty member. It also doesn‘t haye
any serious side effects for most users.

“Students love it." DeSantis said. “It‘s like a
magic bullet. Things that are not interesting sud
denly are."

Angie Wilkinson. a middle school education
sophomore. saw the effect Adderall
can have on a student when she was
with one of her friends who took it
one night.

“In the zone. they talk a lot."

Wilkinson said. ”They talk about a ._

lot of things. then they stare at the _ a”
books. then talk. then stare at their
laptop. It's Just era/y."

Adderall comes in two forms a
tablet and a capsule known as
Addet‘all XR. said Dr. .«\|lcn Bren/cl. a [K
Healthcare psychiatrist. The tablet form usually
lasts around five hours. atid Adderall XR.
equipped Wllll estended‘release beads. lasts for 10

A typical way to abtise Adderall is to mash it
up and snort it giving you an instant four-hour en}
ergy shot. [)eSantis said. Abusing Adderall to get a

high or “a mild state ot euphoria." is difficult.
Bren/cl said

“Theoretically this can cause a bit/L" Bren/cl

Users have to get a whole lot in the blood
stream and that is really hard. Bren/cl said.

Whether it is taken for academic purposes or
for recreational use. Adderall is seen as a way to
succeed w ithout significant health effects. DeSati-
tis said.

”There are two schools of thought to this." Der

Saittis said. "One. kids are not dropping dead

And two. it freaking works. it's no big

many cases of illicit Addcrall Use on cam

Monroe. With no ob\ious signs of a student abus-

ing Adder-all. police officers have no way of telling
if a student is using or not

“It‘s hard to teil." Monroe said. "One.

ground. Unless someone comes forward

that is concerned about that person. it
goes unnoticed."

DeSantis noticed the same trend while
conducting a study among college stue

dents about Adderall use from the fall of

3005 through the fall of 2006 along with
UK faculty members Elizabeth Webb and Seth

DeSantis first had the idea of doing a study on
illicit Adtlcrall tise while he was writing his book
“Inside Greek [7." a look into fraternities.

“I kept hearing about Addcrall.‘~ [)eSantis
said. "I asked my uppervlcvel communications
class how many had used Adderall before. and 37

plans for campus
smoking ban

flAustin Schmitt

UK President Lee Todd
announced Tuesday an initia»
live for a campus-wide smok~
mg ban beginning as early as
the Fall 200‘) semester.

During the Board of
Trustees meeting. Todd said a
committee will be formed to
figure out how to implement
the bait. The committee will be
headed by Anthaiiy Beatty‘.
LIK's assistant VIL‘C president
for campus services and catn—
pus safety. and Ellen Hahn. a
professor in the (‘olleg * of
Nursing and the Head of UK‘s
Tobacco Policy Research Pro»

l'K will be one of l(i0 came
puses around the country with a
smoking ban but Wlll be the
first in Kentucky. Hahn said.

By the beginning of 200%
student and faculty members
will be chosen to aid Beatty
and Hahn. How to implement
the campus-Wide ban will de~
pend on the input from stu-
dents and faculty members.
Hahn said.

Todd said he saw the posi-
tiye effects a ban has had on

other parts of the city and be-
lieves the same type of ban
could help the campus.

"It is proven that smoke—
free restaurants have enhanced
their environments." Todd
said. "This could enhance
campus life and student life."

Economics junior David
Hofe said a campus-wide ban
seems harsh.

“It seems kind of extreme
to me." Hofe said. "Once
you're l8. you're allowed to
buy it. It's not illegal."

Hahn praised the decision
as a good business plan.

“The country spends Sl93
billion treating people getting
sick from smoking each year
and SH) billion for secondhand
smoking." Hahn said.

Along with the large health
care costs. smoking takes a toll
on the budget of students.
Hahn said. Tobacco companies
target collegeage students.

"tThet main target is
young adults, They‘re a
growing customer." Hahn
said. "This gives students an
excuse to unit. When people
can't light up on campus.
they have a better reason to

mutton, at percent increase. » '

“We effectiyely work out

UK Hospital
tobacco ban
nothing but a
smoke screen

Recently. l.'ls' llealthcai'e imposed a ban on smoking
and elnnmated the designated sirrokirig areas off of hospi~
tal property lllls is a positive and forward~thinking mine
that will undoubtedly help with the air quality and the
overall cleanliness of the hospital camptis.

However. as reported in last Thursday‘s Kenicl. the
tenor ot the effected may riot be so positive. Several hos-
pital stall and patients espressed their disriiay with the
new rules set in place by hospital administration for plac—
ing this ban. While it is their right to be upset. then com:
plaiiits ha\e a limited amount of validity. Simply put.
smoking has been prov en to negatively affect the health
of the smoker and those who are in proximity of smoke.
and the last place it needs to be is at a place where people
go when they are of III health.

People who work at the hospital are there to save lives.
Yes. they need to be relaxed. but they also must recognize
that they are ciriployed to serve the needs of the hospital
patients who make it possible for them to have jobs. When
you serve. you riiake sacrifices. which may mean walking
a little bit for a smoke break. In this case. hospital adminis-
tration has to look out for the well-being of the non-smok-
ing population that works at or visits the hospital.

With a new law in place. there surely will be people
to break ll. Because of this. the administration must take a
deeper look into the v iolations. The Kernel article refer»
criced observer reports of violations of both the imposed
ban Iiires..iiid the city indoor smoking bans. neither of
which is acceptable. Some of the very doctors out to sa\e
lives. and the security that are supposed to enforce these
rules of the hospital. were implicated Also. who is en-
forcing the rules if security is partaking iii the illegal be—

(‘Iearly. smokers are going to smoke and. as a deter-
rent. the baii is merely making smoking a hassle. but not
a big eirough inconvenience to reevaluate the lifestyle.
Driving down South Limestone. that is made evident.
Airy given day. you'll see patients and staff standing on
the sidewalk by the road smoking at ['K Hospital, What a
great first campus impression that makes.

Before this smoking ban can truly succeed. the visions
and goals of all parties iriust be aligned. Smokers must
recognize the health benefits non~siiiokers receive and re—
spect that. and administration must find ways to enforce
the rtrles in a fair and consistent manner without alienat-
ing people it ho have different lifestyles.

While the ideal goal would be to eliminate tobacco
use all together. the truth is that will never happeni es-
pecially not in the state of Kentucky. The state and its
economy is rrruch too dependent on tobacco and the mon-
ey it brings.

Essentially. the ban will only help attempt to achieve
a cleaner hospital environment and riot much else. People
will go to any lengths necessary in order to get their nieo—
tine fix. whether it be walking 20 feet from a door or 500

On 'l‘ucsday. Dec. 2. the Kernel edi-
torial board suggested that. in the face
of statewide budget shortfalls. a \Cllkle
ble cut would be research. Aside from
the exclusion of the fact that undergrad—
uates are involved in research as well as
graduates. the editorial said. "this re~
search has little effect on the students."

Clearly. this idea neglects the many
facets of research. including how the
other iiiitiati\ es. the ones it recom‘
mended be spared. have been founded
on or greatly beirefitted by academic
research. How would the Violence Iii-
tervention and Prevention (enter know

over. much of the research is irot fund-
ed by the university itself. but actually

are run by recipients of prestigious
grants that reduce the financial obligtc
tioris of the university by paying
salaries and overhead. among
