Clearly, the use of ADHD medication illegally, to enhance academic performance becomes an arms race of who is, and who isn’t taking the drugs. If you aren’t using the cognitive enhancing medication, you put yourself at a major disadvantage. Using these drugs becomes a moral issue firstly because it gives those who take it an unfair advantage. But to go further, these enhancements are also morally wrong because it would likely lead to more difficult course requirements. Just as in sports with anabolic steroids, the issue becomes one of deciding to take the moral path and suffer statistically, or to use enhancements to be at the top.
