ADHD DRUG 'ADDERALL' IS BASICALLY CRYSTAL METH WARNS DOCTOR.
A whistle-blower doctor has recently spoken out against the dangers of popular ADHD Big Pharma drug Adderall, saying it is 'basically he same as crystal meth'.
Dr Carl Hart, an associate professor of psychology and psychiatry at Columbia University, spoke with Chris Hayes on MSNBC, and pointed out that Adderall is prescribed to a staggering number of children in the US, including 10,000 toddlers and that the drug is the leading cause of violence in American youth.
Truthactivist.com reports Hart went on to discuss crystal meth and made a statement that would surprise many of the mainstream viewers who were tuned into the show, that it is basically the same thing as Adderall, something that is entirely legal and is prescribed to millions. When Hayes replied back that this couldn't have been true, Hart mentioned a number of studies where he drugs were actually compared and found to be nearly identical.
One thing that was not discussed in the quick interview was the fact that harsh and highly synthetic street drugs would actually not exist if it were no for prohibition. In environments where drugs are legal, there is no incentive for people to create these dangerous synthetics because pure and safe drugs are available to them at low cost.
This is not a perspective that is encouraging drug use, bu rather an understanding that prohibition doesn't work, and people are going to use substances one way or another if that is what they want to do. In addition to not working, prohibition also makes life more dangerous for everyone because the drugs are dirtier, and violent black market develops which impacts the lives of everyone.
