Adderall is a drug that is commonly prescribed to treat ADHD, but because it is cheap and relatively easy to obtain, many people use the drug outside of its intended purpose to improve stamina, increase concentration, and stave off tiredness. Because of its addictive qualities and potential for abuse, Adderall is a Schedule II controlled substance, which means that anyone found in possession of the drug without a valid prescription may face criminal charges.
For example, Adderall can get you into trouble in some of the following scenarios:
- Police search your vehicle during a traffic stop and uncover a pill bottle with someone else’s name on it
- You are found in possession of pills that you were holding for a friend
- You are discovered to have sold pills to someone else
- You are found in possession of a large quantity of the drug without any valid reason
If you have been arrested for a drug crime in connection with Adderall, such as unlawful possession or possession with intent to sell, you should immediately contact a Philadelphia drug crime lawyer at Krasner & Long, LLC. Drug crimes come with serious legal consequences, including potential jail or prison time, expensive fines, and a permanent criminal record that will follow a person around for life. By working with a qualified and experienced attorney, it may be possible to qualify for a drug diversion program that can keep you out of jail. Because each case is different, consulting with an attorney about your specific situation is essential.
