Vince Britton started using Adderall when he was a college student in the Chippewa Valley. He became addicted and this led him to try other drugs. The US Food and Drug Administration says Adderall is an amphetamine which may help increase attention and decrease impulsiveness in people with ADHD. According to the DEA Drug Fact Sheet, Adderall is an addictive drug that can cause physical and mental fatigue. The drug is prevalent on college campuses, yet is hard for police to detect. Some students don’t realize the harm this drug may bring.
