How are people getting access to medication?
 
How are the people abusing AD(H)D medication, getting daily access to the AD(H)D medication?

The street, school, friends, dealers, theft and all the other ways drug abusers and addicts get their fix.

Some people have a legit script that they misuse/abuse.

And also...

From the purple elephant who lives in my closet.

I like to call him Hank.



p.s.
I'm kidding. I'm very proud of the fact that I've never abused my adhd meds.

Skullduggery, charlatanism, chicanery, larceny, diversion, malfeasance, false witness, begging, dealing, barter, conspiracy, grift, sexual acts, misrepresentation, identity theft, intimidation, blackmail, and all of the other usual human behaviors when something is bought and sold on the underground black/free market.

Once as I left Walgreens a guy offered me $500 cash for my Dex. He had been in the pharmacy area when I picked up my prescription. I told him to turn around and walk away before I made a scene. He scattered something quick.


Cheers,

Apparently something called "the darknet" is a real thing and people can get
illegal (unprescribed) meds that way.

True, but the days when this was easy are over, or so I have read.

My friend's cousin who has a profound case of ADHD-PH (emphasis on the H, be next to this guy for 1 minute and you know he has it) has been getting his script of Adderall/generic amphetamine for years *just* to sell it, minus occasional insufflation before important social events to "stay on point."

It is absolutely ridiculous what this guy does.

You're going to get caught. I once worked at a pharmacy and a woman was arrested in the store for doing this, someone quietly called the cops after the pharmacist figured out what was happening.

Are you okay with getting caught?

I wonder if there are some doctors abusing the system?
