Seattle Seahawks' Richard Sherman Retracts Adderall Statement!

Filed under: DrugsFootballNFL

The Seattle Seahawks player, Richard Sherman recently said that "half" the NFL takes Adderall, but after he got a bunch of backlash for his statement, he's now trying to claim that he did NOT say that!!

Here's what Sherman supposedly said:

"About half the league takes it [Adderall], and the league has to allow it. The league made a mistake in my case. Obviously, I didn't do anything, but you have to go through a process to prove you didn't do anything. There are still naysayers out there who don't believe me. But I accept it. If everybody loves you, it probably means you're not much of a player."

But after the NFL slammed him for his careless quote, Richard came back and said:

NFL SLAMS Player's Claim That Half The League Takes Adderall

Filed under: DrugsFootball

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!

Here's what they said:

30% Of College Students Relying On ADHD Drugs For Good Grades

Filed under: DrugsSad SadHealth

Sadly, for many college students, the picture above isn't a joke.

Professor Alan DeSantis of the University of Kentucky has been tracking the use of non-prescribed ADHD drugs or "study drugs" by the student body and has turned up some alarming results.

Pills like Adderall or Ritalin are used by HALF of all juniors and seniors in college, and 30% of the entire student body.

Students have placed the risk of using the drug as "slightly more dangerous than the soft drink Mountain Dew and nowhere near as dangerous as drinking beer and smoking." The reality, however, is that taking ADHD drugs WITHOUT a diagnosis can cause "significant problems both in terms of thinking, mood problems, maybe even functionality."

Not only is a drug like Adderall habit forming, but the federal government lists it as a schedule II drug, meaning it has "the highest abuse potential and dependence profile of all drugs that have medical utility."

Students seem oblivious to the risks and insist taking the drugs help their performance. Believe it or not, they aren't alone either.

Some scientists advocate legalizing "safe and effective" cognitive enhancement drugs, citing that the "new methods of improving our brain function…will benefit both the individual and society."

We learned a long time ago (was it kindergarten) that you should NEVER take someone else's prescriptions and we'll stick by that!

Study: 1 In 4 Adults Exaggerate ADHD Symptoms To Get Medication

Filed under: HealthMedicine

Faking sick isn’t just for middle-school kids trying to cut class!

A new survey found that nearly 25% of adults fake or exaggerate ADHD symptoms in order to get prescribed Adderall.

For people with ADHD, drugs like Adderall and Ritalin give users a sense of calm. For people without ADHD, the drugs basically act as mental performance enhancers, allowing them to concentrate better.

The problem with this is that doctors are trying harder and harder to avoid giving healthy people these drugs, which means that they are enacting stricter protocols for diagnoses, potentially making it harder for people who actually have ADHD to get the medicine they need.

The bottom line: Don’t fake your way into a prescription — you could be hurting someone else in the process!

Brooklyn Doctor And Stripper-Turned-Med-Student Girlfriend Busted For Prescription Drug Ring

Filed under: DrugsBusted!Fitness

Wowsa!

In Park Slope, Brooklyn, Pauline Wiltshire allegedly sold thousands of of Adderall pills to neighbors and online customers.

And she got the drugs from her boyfriend, Dr. Michael H. Gabriel, who was doing his anesthesiology residency at Methodist Hospital. But on his off time, he went to Atlantic City and was quite the gambler.

Turns out he was paying off his debt by having Wiltshire sell the drugs on Craigslist and PayPal!

Many other residents at the hospital were part of the ring and one of the members is now helping investigators.

On September 8th, which was before the indictment was announced, Gabriel pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute Adderall and has been living in Ohio.

And Wiltshire's lawyer sister, Sarah Wiltshire Larkin, was even involved in this mess! An undercover DEA agent sent $200 via PayPal to an account Wiltshire allegedly used under a fake name. Several emails later, Wiltshire indicated that "her sister" would send the pills.

A package was confiscated by authorities that contained 11 Adderall tablets. It was mailed from a post office in Knoxville, Tennessee, not far from the office where Sarah works, but she has not been charged.

The ring allegedly operated between May 2008 and April 2010. Over 11,000 Adderalls were sold and most of them from prescriptions in Pauline Wiltshire's name.

Pauline, who was once an exotic dancer and recently a student at Windsor University School of Medicine in St. Kitts, was arrested in Atlanta on Christmas Day and charged with using medical contacts to illegally sell the prescription drug.

She was released on bail and put under house arrest with her family in Ohio.

Crazy!
