What if I have a script for Adderall will I fail because it comes up positive for Amphetamines and they will think it is attached to Methamphetamines?? Is there a way for them to tell if it is one or the other?
You have left out many facts in your question, so I will have to make assumptions. The qualification for a court appointed attorney is not dependent upon whether you have a prescription for Adderal. It is determined by your income and the type of charges you are facing. If you are being tested for drugs, you need to bring proof that you have been legally prescribed the Adderal by getting a note from your Doctor that states a diagnosis and that you are being treated for it with Adderal, with the dosage and frequency. Consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney who can deal with the issues on your behalf. GOOD LUCK!!
Yes, but you rather not be in that position in the first place to have to defend yourself.
I am licensed attorney who focuses on Serious DUI Cases such a 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs, and Felony DUIs and DMV hearings. I also have much experience handling car accident cases. Although the information I provide is helpful, it is not legal advice. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
Receiving a court appointed attorney is based on your financial needs not your prescription use. If you are on bond conditions you need to provide the probation department with your prescription. And yes, they can tell the difference.
You need to let everyone know if you are on medications before taking any UA or drug test and take your prescription to show.
