As we can see, the 18-25 group is one of the key demographics behind the rise of smart drugs. However, increasingly younger teenagers are turning to these substances as they try to gain a competitive edge. This is problematic because their brains are still developing so it’s extremely risky.
Remember, these are mostly prescription drugs so it’s not wise for parents to allow their children to use them. Even coffee is risky for teenagers and many doctors recommend that they don’t drink it until they turn 18. This is something that we should be aware of as nootropics cement their place in society (via Healthline).
