Seattle Seahawks superstar Richard Sherman seems to think that half the league is on Adderall, and that the NFL should probably un-ban the substance.
Here's the thing, though: he's completely wrong!
The NFL knows what's up, and thinks he should immediately stop pressing the league to un-ban the drug before someone gets hurt! Basically, Adderall is super easy to detect, and testing would've found that "half" of the league by now!
"The comments are ill-informed and inaccurate. Adderall is easily detected under current testing and will result in a suspension absent an approved therapeutic use exemption. If his statement were true, we would be seeing many more positive tests and suspensions.
"More importantly, his comments are irresponsible, as they ignore the serious medical risks and documented public health crisis associated with the improper use of Adderall and similar drugs.”
Sounds about right to us. What Sherman is saying just sounds like a way of justifying his OWN suspension last year for Adderall — which he appealed and won because there were errors in his testing.
Either way, let's not un-ban it! Mmmmkay??
