They can't : The answer is categorically "no way, no how!" to paraphrase the wizard of oz. The explanation is simple, anything with amphetamine in it would have to be a prescription drug and could not be purchased over-the-counter.

We can definitely discuss more about sugars, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
