Doctors prescribe speed. People who want speed have an easy avenue thusly. It's about that simple.

I had to think of Requiem for a Dream and the story of the mother that wants to fit into her dress. She goes to the doctor, he gives her speed (I think?). She realizes that she is more efficient. Cleans the house quicker, does chores etc. and is even enjoying it. All the while she is losing weight! Perfect!

The day comes where she finally fits in her old dress... But she also notices she lost her mind.

My memory is hazy but did she get paranoid/psychotic at some point?

She gets a vaguely defined upper.

But really doctors give out speed for reasons including being a child. So theres just a huge amount of kiddie cocaine available. Some kids want money more than drugs they find ineffective. The ease is more complicated than I made it sound but the problem boils down to there just being a shitload of available speed prescribed for a dubiously diagnosed problem
