Jaime Diaz was interviewed by The Daily for an article on students using amphetamines as a "study aid."

He observed that “There is an artificial dichotomy between drugs as being bad and mean, and medicine as being good and safe,” Diaz said. “[Adderall] can be dangerous [and] physical prescription doesn’t release the substance from concern.” In his cautioning about the side effects of amphetamine on the cardiovascular and nervous systems, he referenced a 2005 case in which 20 sudden deaths were linked to proper consumption of recommended dosages of a Canadian-produced Adderall.
