hello, i am new to these forums, thought they looked interesting!!!

You could say that Erdos was in a league of his own, so it did not matter if he took the drugs. the problem seems to be at universities, where students taking the drugs outperform those who don't - and that is on the rise. I see it a bit as an unfair advantage.

How do you know Erdos was in a league of his own without the drugs?

The evidence suggests otherwise. Erdos stopped taking amphetamines for a month, to prove that he wasn't addicted. He subsequently claimed that the experiment had set back mathematics by a month.
