STUDY BUDDIES After alcohol and marijuana, Adderall has the highest abuse rate of any substance among UA students; most use it to help with academics

ack*, a UA physics sophomore, knocked on a door, which was opened to reveal a cramped and dimly lit dorm room. Michael*, a fine arts freshman, led him through his room, movie posters filling the walls and bottles of alcohol scattered throughout. Michael opened a desk drawer and produced a prescription bottle filled with orange capsules. “I just need two,” Jack said. He had a midterm coming up and said he needed something extra to help him study. Michael then placed two capsules into a Ziploc bag and handed it to Jack. On the capsules, in black script, was written: ADDERALL XR 20 mg. Michael has a prescription for Adderall to treat his Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and he sells extra pills on the side at $5 each. Michael has cycled through some 20 different ADHD medications by doctors since he was diagnosed with the disorder at the age of 7. About a year and a half ago, his doctor prescribed him Adderall for the first time. Adderall is an amphetamine commonly prescribed to ADHD patients to help improve their concentration. Some students use Adderall without a prescription as a way to boost their academic performance, especially when they feel they’re falling behind, said Lynn Reyes, an alcohol and other drug prevention specialist with Campus Health Service. “They’re in trouble; finals are coming up,” Reyes said. “So they think, ‘I’ve got to pull an all-nighter. I’m going to try some Adderall.’” Adderall use is not an uncommon part of the college experience, with 31 percent of four-year students reporting having taken the drug without a prescription at some point, according to a 2012 study in the Journal of American College Health. In the annual Health and Wellness Survey conducted by Campus Health in 2013, 6.6 percent of UA students admitted to using Adderall or similar ADHD medications without a prescription in the past 30 days, and 13 percent said that they had used it the past year. The only substances with higher abuse rates among UA students are alcohol and marijuana, Reyes said. Unlike alcohol and marijuana, recreational use of Adderall is not nearly as common. The study in JACH showed that about 75 percent or more of college students who use Adderall use it to help them academically. Adderall is a stimulant, not unlike coffee, said Keith Boesen, director of the Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center. “We use caffeine to wake ourselves up and help us concentrate,” Boesen said. “Adderall takes that to the next level.” Prescribing a stimulant to those with ADHD may seem like a puzzling choice, but the stimulation from Adderall actually has a calming effect on people with ADHD.

it?’” Michael said. He receives a package from home once a month containing his prescription, which consists of 30 pills, one for each day of the month. The pills he doesn’t take, he sells — to friends, acquaintances and even strangers. “For me, it’s not like I need it every day to function. Some people need it to function,” he said. He doesn’t take his daily pill on the weekends when he drinks because the two don’t mix well, and on some days he wakes up and doesn’t feel he needs to take it. Slowly, a surplus accumulates, and he has enough to begin selling. After he started selling to his friends, they began referring others to him. He estimates that during finals week last semester he made about $250 from selling his Adderall. Michael said that he knows what he is doing is illegal. Adderall is classified by the Food and Drug Administration as a Schedule II controlled substance, which *From UA Campus Health Service’s 2013 Health and Wellness Survey indicates it carries a high risk for abuse, and places it in the **From 2012 study in the Journal of American College Health same category as cocaine and methamphetamine. “It helps people working with those parts of the brain The UA Student Code of Conduct to focus and be able to pay attention, particularly in prohibits the unauthorized use, sale, possession or school, where we find a lot of the early diagnoses [of distribution of any controlled substance.

Regents to hold public hearings over tuition BY ethan mCsweeney The Daily Wildcat

file photo/The Daily Wildcat

Regent Dennis DeConcini and UA President Ann Weaver Hart will be present for the tuition hearing in Gallagher Theater tonight at 5 p.m.

The Arizona Board of Regents will hold tuition hearings across the state tonight as it prepares to set tuition rates for the next academic year. The hearings are set to occur simultaneously on the campuses of each of the state universities — the UA, Arizona State University and Northern Arizona University — at 5 p.m. The UA hearing will take place at Gallagher Theater. A separate hearing will also occur at UA South in Sierra Vista. The hearings are meant to provide a public forum for feedback on the tuition proposals for each of the universities, according to Sarah Harper, director of public affairs for the board of regents. “Anybody in the community can attend these meetings,” Harper said. “That’s why they’re held statewide.” The state universities submitted their tuition proposals for the 20142015 academic year to the regents on March 14. The UA requested a tuition increase of 2 percent for in-state students and 5 percent for out-of-state students. Regents will be in attendance at each of the meetings across the state, according to Heather Lukach,

Skepticism aimed at GMOs not warranted BY jESUS lUNA TARAZON The Daily Wildcat


umanity’s advances in biotechnology are miraculous. Most people living in a developed country, whether they’re aware of it or not, are enjoying the fruits of modern science in numerous ways. We have longer, healthier lives and experience a relatively high standard of living. Despite this, there seems to be a crowd of people who always cause a ruckus about what scientists are doing. Particularly in the U.S., there are a multitude of conspiracy theories about what our government is supposedly doing to our food supply, especially in regards to GMOs. It’s fine to be skeptical, but trying to identify threats without first confirming that there’s something to be afraid of is pointless. GMOs, or genetically modified organisms, seem to stir up all sorts of powerful, sometimes rabid emotional responses (often in the form of a rant in written in all capitals, riddled with bad grammar and inflammatory language). I’ve seen all sorts of crazy posts like this on Internet forums and social media sites, often with a very smug attitude behind them: I only eat organic, the rest of you sheep can keep eating your cancerveggies! Or I see pictures of lab mice with apparently GMO-induced tumors or lesions, which are never labeled, accredited to anyone or even linked to a source. One oppositional argument posed by GMO Awareness is that “the very process of genetic engineering — the random insertion of a gene into the genome — causes disruptions in many enzymes that perform basic metabolic work.” The underlying message on all these forums is always the same: GMOs are evil, malicious poison and they must be stopped. Not surprisingly, the prime suspect behind such concerns is none other than ignorance, with misinformation as its accomplice. Hearsay is often repeated as though it were fact. This pattern produces comment threads about how our corn and our chickens are going to kill us unless they’re grown in someone’s backyard, with zero chemicals and lots of love. So let’s get this straight: What are GMOs, exactly? According to an article from the World Health Organization, “Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) can be defined as organisms in which the genetic material (DNA) has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally.” Presumably, what people freak out about is that last phrase: “that does not occur naturally.” What do scientists do to our food? Why do they do it? I couldn’t possibly go into all their methods in this short column, but genetic engineering can entail processes such as selective breeding, which has been going on for centuries, or more advanced methods, like extracting DNA from similar plant types and using it to generate more desirable traits in a given crop. When you do some simple research, GMOs sound less and less sinister. Agricultural scientists aren’t injecting your potatoes with rat poison and radioactive waste, they’re creating hybrids with different plants to produce a stronger, more fruitful crop that yields more food and possibly even requires less water or nutrients to grow. Agricultural scientists aren’t just throwing ideas at a wall and seeing what sticks; lots of hard work, research and innovation were required to get to where we are now. For example, look at Norman Borlaug, a plant pathologist who deserves far more credit than he gets. He’s known for developing strains of wheat that had a significantly higher yield, were resistant to disease and had a dramatic impact on the economies of several countries, such as Mexico and Pakistan. The yield was so significant that Borlaug is credited with saving more than a billion people from starving to death by increasing the available food supply. GMOs are a necessity, especially in the modern world, where the human population is higher than ever before. The number of humans is constantly growing, but the food supply always seems limited — it doesn’t have to be, with GMOs. When you fail to do your research, you are limiting your potential knowledge. So loosen up those tin-foil hats a little and let the blood flow through your brain. Skepticism shouldn’t be treated like a competitive sport; you don’t win a prize for being more paranoid than your Facebook friends.

‘Best’ majors worst problem BY shelby thomas The Daily Wildcat


fter a full night of studying for my family studies and human development exam earned me an A, I threw a solo dance party for 10 minutes straight and called my mom. The test covered a ton of very specific information, all of which I want to completely understand in order to become the best counselor possible. I believe in myself and I’m proud of what I want to accomplish as a professional woman. However, when I see articles like Forbes’ “The 15 Most Valuable College Majors,” which hastily sums up child and family studies — along with social work, culinary arts and special education — by classifying it merely as one of the worst-paying college majors, it’s a little discouraging. Rankings that organize majors based on their supposed difficulty and worth are frequently posted by huge media outlets. They make it easy to feel that society values my aspirations less than those of other students. Classifying majors as good, bad, the best or the worst creates a hierarchical system that inaccurately represents the importance of various occupations. This language is unproductive and very destructive in the creation of a society that values precision and problem solving as much as it does creativity and open-mindedness. Everyone has a place and a job in society and, if this were truly recognized, these lists wouldn’t exist. For students and prospective students deciding what to major in, a Google search isn’t a bad way to get an idea of potential options.

Police Beat by Elizabeth Eaton The Daily Wildcat

‘Just about legal’

A non-UA affiliated man was cited for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia on March 18 at 1:30 a.m. While performing a check of the Park Avenue Parking Garage, a University of Arizona Police Department officer noticed two men behind McClelland Hall. The officer drove over to the area to investigate and ask the two men why they were there. The first said that he was tired and had walked a long way, and the second replied that he had just wanted to get out of the house. During the conversation, the officer noticed a black and green glass pipe on the table in front of the first man. The officer then asked for their IDs, and as the men handed them over, the first removed his hat and placed it over the pipe. The officer told the first man that he’d already seen the pipe and would deal with it in a minute. The man then picked the hat back up and put it on his head. The first man admitted to owning the pipe, and produced a metal box full of marijuana when asked if he had any. “It’s just about legal anyway,” the man said as he slid the box over to the officer. The man was cited for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, and both were told not to return to campus without a purpose.

Up in smoke

A UA student received a code of conduct referral for possession of marijuana on March 14 at 3:10 a.m. A UAPD officer was sent to investigate a fire alarm that went off in a student’s room. Upon arrival, the student living in the room showed the officer to his room, and then the smoke detector that was sounding. The officer managed to disable the smoke detector and noticed a strong smell of burnt marijuana while doing so. The officer asked the student why the alarm had gone off, and the student said he didn’t know, claiming that he was in the shower when he heard the alarm. However, the officer noticed that he did not look like he had just gotten out of the shower and observed that the student was drinking an excessive amount of water and had raised taste buds and red glassy eyes. The student did not allow the officer to search his room, but there appeared to be a small green stem on the desk that the student was sitting on. The student insisted that the desk was his roommate’s, who had left for spring break. The student then became very uncooperative, refusing to speak to the officer. He said that he was done being interrogated. The Dean of Students Office was notified and the student received a code of conduct referral because he would not allow his room to be searched. The smoke detector was replaced and the system reset.

Arizona men’s basketball head coach Sean Miller has led the Wildcats to the Sweet Sixteen three times in his five years at the UA, in 2011, 2013 and 2014. Miller lead his previous team, Xavier, to the Sweet Sixteen twice, in 2008 and 2009.

hey are some of the most noticeable students on campus. Ceiling fans are potential guillotines and classroom desks are their worst enemies. Offensive lineman Fabbians Ebbele, who will be a redshirt senior this fall , is listed at 6-foot-8, 311 pounds. “When I walk into a room if I’m not paying attention I might bump my head,” Ebbele said. “Once I got in a Fiat with two doors. ... My head was through the sun roof.” Ebbele is one of the biggest players on Arizona football’s roster, and he said every day presents new challenges due to his height. “I’ll be messing around and forget to duck,” Ebbele said. “Jumping around or going through doors is a challenge.” The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said 5-foot-7, 195-pounds is the average height and weight for American males age 20 and over. But Ebbele and most NCAA football players are not your average Americans. In fact, recently, USA Today came out with stats that showed exactly how heavy college

Baucus said. “But what exactly goes in my body is important.” That’s right where the Arizona coaching and training staff want their players to be. “If we’re treating them as an elite athlete, then they need to live, eat, train and sleep like an elite athlete,” head football coach Rich Rodriguez said. “Sometimes I don’t think we’ve done that. I think we’re getting closer to that.” Since coming to Arizona in 2012, Rodriguez has emphasized the importance of not only on-the-field matters, but also what his players are doing once they leave the field. He believes there is a strong correlation between how a player lives and their football success or struggles. “Every year you learn more and more about the value of nutrition and sleep and all those things for the athletes, so it’s nothing new,” Rodriguez said. “Just getting our guys to be a year-round athlete is a little different for them, and they got to understand that. And I think they do.”

ARIZONA SOPHOMORE OUTFIELDER Zach Gibbons (23) runs off the field after being tagged out during Arizona’s 12-1 victory against Washington State on March 14 at Hi Corbett Field. The Wildcats started Pac-12 play 1-5.


Arizona baseball has only won one of the seven games it has played since March 14. The Wildcats beat Washington State once, but then lost their next two games to the Cougars. Arizona then lost a single game to Grand Canyon and was swept by Washington. Arizona is 1-5 in the Pac-12. Wichita State became the first No. 1 seed to be knocked out of the NCAA tournament when it lost the first game of its season on Sunday to No. 8-seed Kentucky. The Shockers (35-1) won an NCAArecord 35 games to start the season, but failed to become the first undefeated national champion since Indiana in 1976. The Arizona Diamondbacks traveled to Australia to lose both games against the Los Angeles Dodgers over the weekend. The Diamondbacks dropped the first game 3-1 and the second game 7-5. Arizona has its home opener on March 31 against the San Francisco Giants. The top NFL draft prospect, former Michigan offensive lineman Taylor Lewan, is facing assault charges. Lewan allegedly assaulted two Ohio State fans in an incident that occurred after Michigan’s loss to Ohio State on Dec 1. If convicted, he will face a fine of up to $500 or 93 days in jail.

Arizona men’s basketball made it to its third Sweet Sixteen in the last four years. The No. 1 seed Wildcats beat No. 8-seed Gonzaga 84-61 on Sunday in the Round of 32, after opening with a 68-59 win over No. 16 seed Weber State. Arizona will face San Diego State in Anaheim, Calif., for a spot in the Elite Eight, which would be Sean Miller’s second with Arizona. Arizona junior guard Nick Johnson is one of the four national finalists for this year’s Naismith Men’s College Player of the Year Trophy. If Johnson wins the trophy, he will become the first Arizona player to earn this award. Arizona softball won five games in a row after getting swept at No. 1 UCLA. The Wildcats won two at UNLV, and then three against Oregon State by the mercy rule. Arizona outscored the Beavers 36-2 over 15 innings. The Arizona women’s tennis team defeated Oregon on Saturday to move to a 14-1 record for the season and a perfect 3-0 in Pac-12 conference play. Arizona head coach Vicky Maes said that the women have been able to dominate some really solid teams so far.

ASSISTANT COACH Tyson Swetnam leads new players on the Arizona rugby team at Rincon Field in fall 2013. The Wildcats will move to a renamed Cherry Field next to the UA campus this week.

for the rugby team and the fans.


The No. 16 Arizona men’s rugby team lost at No. 5 UCLA 76-13 over spring break, but the head coach and players remain optimistic. Head coach Sean Duffy said he feels the team will improve over the course of the season, starting with a home game against No. 11 ASU on Saturday at 2 p.m. “The team will need to shift [its] focus and prepare for the last three games of the season,” Duffy said. “I think we will be able to have a good close game against ASU.” Saturday will mark the 45th anniversary of the UA rugby team, and in a ceremony starting at 1 p.m., Cherry Field will be renamed in honor of former Arizona rugby head coach Dave Sitton. A golf tournament and alumni brunch will also be held this weekend to support the rugby team. Cherry Field opened last semester and is next to the Student Recreation Center on Sixth Street, across from Arizona Stadium. The field will be named William David Sitton Field. Sitton was the head rugby coach for nearly 40 years at the UA . He died unexpectedly in 2013, and Duffy has taken over as head coach. The team played its last game at Rincon Vista Sports Complex on Saturday. The renamed Cherry Field will become the permanent home field for the rugby team. “I think it is a natural fit to make the Dave Sitton Field our new home,” Duffy said. “To play on campus in the shadow of Arizona Stadium will be incredible.” This Saturday will be a white-out game

Women’s Volleyball sweeps Las Vegas Open This past weekend, No. 7 Arizona Women’s A Volleyball team went undefeated to win the Las Vegas Open. The Wildcats defeated UCSB in two sets to win the championship. Co-captain and senior Kristle Schulz said she was proud of her team’s performance in Las Vegas. “This is the first time in a while we have been able to play with most of our team and they did a fantastic job,” Schulz said. Prior to playing in the championship round, Arizona defeated Miami University and Santa Clara in pool play. The team also beat Cal Poly and Cal in bracket play. “Our team as a whole really clicks when we are all available to play,” Schulz said. Unlike the A team, the No. 2 B team did not have a clean sweep at the tournament. It went 2-4 at the Las Vegas Open. In pool play, the B team won against UCLA and Colorado School of Mines, but lost to Colorado University. In the bracket play, the B team lost to Washington State, Santa Clara and PLNU. The Arizona Women’s A and B volleyball teams have qualified and will play in nationals in Reno, Nev., April 3-5.

Q How many drinks on

average will get you to the .08 limit or above?

A. land most drinkers above .08 blood alcohol concentration (BAC). An individual’s BAC depends on four factors: weight,

You may be surprised that just 2-4 drinks in one hour will

gender, time, and strength of the drinks. While you can control how much and how fast you drink, weight and gender aren’t changeable in one evening.

A standard drink is 12 ounces of beer or 4 oz. of wine or 1 ounce shot of 80 proof liquor (40% ethanol). Every standard drink that a 140 pound woman consumes will raise her BAC .032. So, 3 drinks x .032 puts her at .96, which is over the legal DUI limit of .08 for those 21 and older. Every standard drink that a 180 male consumes will raise his BAC .02. Four standard drinks would put him right at .08. To see how weight and gender affect BAC see the tables below:

Brewster Rockit: Space Guy!

Women 100 lbs. 140 lbs. 180 lbs.

BAC/drink .045 .032 .025

Men 140 lbs. 180 lbs. 220 lbs.

BAC/drink .026 .020 .017

Why such a big difference in how alcohol affects men and women? Weight is big factor. Females generally weigh less than men and they have less alcohol dehydrogenase (the liver enzyme that metabolizes alcohol) than males. Men typically have more muscle mass than women – which helps dilute alcohol in the blood stream. To stay safer when drinking alcohol, it’s recommended that women limit themselves to one standard drink an hour and men limit drinks to one or two drinks per hour. With moderate drinking, you likely will have better times, better memories, and fewer regrets.

A 40 oz. Budweiser is actually 3.8 standard drinks.

Ensemble performs for spring BY DANIEL BURKART The Daily Wildcat

College music isn’t all marching bands and stereos blasting from the windows of fraternity parties. Students might be surprised to find there is another musical world out there, once they take out the headphones and turn off the computer speakers. “If more students just wandered in the door, they would love what they see and hear,” said Gregg Hanson, professor and bands director for the UA School of Music. “[Students] only know the marching and pep bands, and there’s a lot more to what we do in the School of Music than that.” The UA Wind Ensemble and Wind Symphony will perform their spring concert at 7:30 p.m. in Crowder Hall. The program will consist of two parts. The first will feature the Wind Symphony’s renditions of three compositions: “English Dances” by Malcolm Arnold, “In Memoriam: An Elegy for the Fallen” by Alfred Reed and “Festive Overture” by Dmitri Shostakovich. The second part will consist of the Wind

Before, he served as director of bands at the University of Utah for 14 years, and in 1984 he was inducted into the American
