Trend of perscription drug abuse rises

DRUGS
Continued from Page I
:Tarm, a local drug treatment facility.
Students who use prescription drugs for med-
ica urposes often supply those who want the
Cdr to get high or to stay awake.
"I was always given way more than I ever needed,"
said one University student, who wished to remain
anonymous.
"People come and ask for it. I knew people could
get their hands on tons of different things and if it was
going to be between my Ritalin or over the counter
speed, caffeine, cocaine or anything else they need to
keep awake I would rather they used something that
works. I've never seen it have any bad effects on any-

body'the student said.
The student also said that while friends offer to
pay for the medication, it is given away for free
because of the drug's low cost after the help of
medical insurance.
Because of students like thisone, several col-
lege health services have reevaluated their pre-
scription processes.
"One thing we did was to make sure we firmly
cemented and standardized our assessment
process," Heiligenstein said. "We tightened our
policies for people on medication. There is one
lost or stolen prescription refill per person."
Another University student acknowledged the
upward trend in the illicit use of prescription,
drugs to increase the effects of other sub-

stances.
"It makes getting drunk so much easier - it's
a money saver. Have three beers and a vicodin
and you're done for the night," said another Uni-
versity freshman, who wished to remain anony-
mous.
The student also said it was no trouble obtain-
ing drugs such as Ritalin and Valium.
"People always have them."
The student said that prescription drugs are a
great help as study aids.
"Ritalin gets you focused. It's just like cocaine
if you take enough."
- The Associated Press and Daily Staff
Reporters David Enders and Hanna LoPatin
contributed to this report.

LSA-SG
Continued from Page 1
Candidates who have to wait another
week for results expressed annoyance.
"It feels like I'm cursed," said Eno-
ra Priest, a current representative who
had to wait two weeks for results to be
released in last year's election due to
voter fraud. "But they're being quicker
this year. I just want to know."
Orandi said he felt the questions
surrounding Englander did not reflect
on the Wolverine candidates for LSA-
SG. Englander was not associated with
the Wolverine candidates for LSA-SG.
"It had nothing to do with us,"
Orandi said. "Even so, the MSA slate
ran a very clean campaign. We were
very disappointed that four or five peo-
ple decided to completely ignore what

the student body wanted."
Blue Party candidate Adam
Damerow said his work continues,
despite his loss.
"My first concern is making sure
there's a smooth transition," Damerow
said. "I knew it was going to be a close
race. Both parties were qualified I
wish nothing but the best of luck to
B.J and Erin."
Pai expressed disappointment that a
scandal had to take away from the
elections.
"It's unfortunate that in a midst of an
election based on real issues we had to
encounter a scandal" Pai said. "I have
full confidence in the judiciary and (the
elections director) Heidi Lubin that they
will look at the situation from all angles
and make sure it is speedy so the gov-
ernment can resume work."
