ASU campus a hot spot for prescription drug abuse


Deanna Dent / THE STATE PRESS
There are several different ways in which to take Adderal, many crush the pill and sniff, some take it orally.
While some students at ASU have no problem cracking down on the books without caffeine or other stimulants to help them focus, many students have discovered a tiny orange pill that users say can work wonders for their grades.

Adderall is the hottest prescription drug sweeping across college campuses nationwide, and ASU is no exception.

Adderall is prescribed to treat attention deficit disorder, but anyone who wants it can usually find it without searching too hard, especially on college campuses.
Also used to treat narcolepsy, Adderall is a stimulant form of amphetamine, said Gary Septon, Health Director at ASU.

Students spend summer on campaign trail

While many ASU students are spending their summer vacations relaxing by the pool, some students are taking advantage of their free time by volunteering for local and statewide political campaigns.

The ASU College Republicans and Young Democrats, as well as other students who volunteer on an individual basis, are dedicating hours of free time to help politicians prepare for the November 2006 elections.

Most student volunteers agree volunteering can make a big difference in the outcome of the elections.

AFTER ME LUCKY CHARMS: Players and coaches stand next to the dugout during their game against Oklahoma Sooners on St. Patrick's Day at Packard Stadium.
The luck of the Irish fell upon the ASU baseball team as they took the field wearing green hats and socks on St. Patrick's Day on March 17.

"We were in the dugout in the ninth inning rubbing the person's shamrock on their hat next to us trying to get some luck out of them," junior outfielder Colin Curtis said.

Devil Dish: Bad habit hard to break for Lefty

In position to win his third straight major, an old stranger visited Phil Mickelson as he approached the final hole of the final round in the U.S. Open.
"Phil the Thrill" Mickelson, Lefty's alter ego, had vanished two green jackets ago, but returned from his vacation just as Mickelson prepared to tee off from the 18th hole.

Richard Lewis performs in Tempe


PHOTO COURTESY MICHELLE MARX
Comedian Richard Lewis is just as neurotic in real life as he is on stage. See him perform at the Tempe Improv Thursday through Sunday.
To say Richard Lewis is a man of few words would be a complete and utter fabrication.
The living legend of comedy, who will be appearing at the Tempe Improv Thursday through Sunday on his "Misery Loves Company Tour," puts up no act on stage; he truly is the neurotic, paranoid, mess of man who recklessly wears his heart on his sleeve.
Interviewing Lewis via phone is a lot like listening to the man do his stand-up for an audience of one; there's very little back and forth, but the laughs flow as easily as his monologues (to which Lewis would apologize for profusely again and again before launching into another one of his self-deprecatingly hilarious diatribes).
