Huff – Members of a church in Daphne, Ala., were panicked on Sunday when they learned that a plastic egg hidden for an Easter egg hunt allegedly contained a volunteer’s medication. The Press-Register reported that though Christ the King Catholic Church notified parents and asked that they return the eggs, a 6-year-old child had already ingested an Adderall pill. Jarret Anthony Helm, a 21-year-old volunteer, was subsequently arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, according to Daphne police. It’s not clear whether police believe the incident was intentional or accidental. The suspect had allegedly told church officials that he’d noticed his mistake but retrieved the egg before the hunt began, the Associated Press reported. It was one of 1,500 eggs hidden. Adderall is a stimulant medication that “may help increase attention and decrease impulsiveness and hyperactivity in patients with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).” according to the Food and Drug Administration. It hasn’t been studied in children less than 6 years old, and side effects include headaches, fast heartbeats, dizziness, and seizures. Police told Press-Register that the child’s parents said the 6-year-old did not suffer any “adverse effects.”


What are these people, new? It’s Adderall, folks. I think it’s literally prescribed to every child in America right now. If you don’t have ADD and aren’t popping pills as a youngin then you ain’t shit. Welcome to 2013. All the kids are hopped up. What were they worried that this six year old was gonna find the rest of the eggs too fast after he ate the pill? Clean his room too quickly? Dominate the picture find in Highlights Magazine and make the other kids feel bad? I’m not even joking when I say having to find Adderall hidden in an egg is actually more difficult than procuring it from a licensed doctor. Like if this dude got arrested for this “crime” then they should arrest thousands of doctors across the country. The doctors just give it to you. In an Easter egg hunt you actually have to work for it.
