In brief: Not fatal, but dumb

The combination is not likely to be fatal, but there is no logic to it.
The marijuana clouds consciousness, when you were supposedly trying to increase focus by taking adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). Please don't turn yourself into a chemical experiment this way. Your brain is a precious thing to waste. Stay healthy. And remember that both Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and marijuana increase heart rate. Why chance it?

In brief: CURIOUS

Sounds like the sorcerers apprentice.
If i pour a wild mix into a flask will a genie come out - will it explode - will there be fireworks? I wonder why you want to feel different. If you are into experiments become a scientist. If the rest of your life isn't going well, dont run away from it. Get some help. A psychiatrist might be a good choice.

In brief: Could be

Yes, they can be.
Both work on the brain and either can be fatal in certain individuals. Also, this combo can cause severe interactions that may not be fatal but may cause psychosis, hallucinations, uncontrolled violence, etc.

The effects of mixing are not that dramatic and will vary in individuals, but both only have short term effects. The effects of taking Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) while smoking\tmarijuana? It can effect the heart. Mixing drugs can always heart effects and may cause depression.
