Is Drooling a Transaction?

Kids these days!

Today, on university campuses around the world, students are striking deals to buy and sell prescription drugs such as Adderall and Ritalin — not to get high, but to get higher grades, to provide an edge over their fellow students or to increase in some measurable way their capacity for learning. These transactions are crimes in the United States, punishable by prison.
There's a healthy market for my prescription drugs. I could be rich! Rich, I tells ye!

Important note to DEA minders: I do not and will not sell my prescription drugs. Apparently the comically somnolent state of my everyday consciousness is made possible only through its chemical magic, so it stands to reason that without it, I would be unable to conduct transactions, legal or illegal, unless drooling is a transaction.
