Massive Dynamic

Did you know the amount of Adderall produced in the last 15 years has increased ten fold? That’s 10x the amount of aderall being consumed(almost entirely) in the United States. I’m sure that the number of kids with ADD and ADHD has increased by a multiple of 10 as well during that time…or maybe it’s evidence that we as a country have a problem with prescription drug abuse.

This article did a good job or laying out the systematic way that big pharma has gone about marketing stimulants and manipulating the supply of the drugs thru patents and when that fails, expensive litigation and shady business practices.
