After adding Adderall to its rental supplies and on-call pharmacists to assist in its handling, Emerson’s Equipment Distribution Center is currently swamped with people.
“Lots of customers today,” said Duane Rosington, assistant manager at the EDC. “These kids are rabid, and they want to finish the semester strong.”
Adderall, often prescribed to people with ADHD, is a medication that assists in helping students concentrate and stop fidgeting. Emerson staff added the drug after Spring Break, when a new shipment came in all the way from Israel.
“Our goal is that people will come here instead of taking it from their classmates, who actually need it,” said administrator Carla Wells.
At press time, the EDC was about to get audited by the Health and Wellness Center.
