Amidst all the recruiting news on Wednesday, a story broke out of Los Angeles that former USC quarterback Mitch Mustain had been arrested for suspicion of selling prescription drugs. Mustain had been busted in a sting trying to sell adderall online. Fortunately for Mustain, he's a shady salesman. You see, it wasn't really adderall that he was selling, but something he was trying to pass off as adderall.
Mustain's dishonesty is what kept Mustain from having felony charges filed against him in the case. Turns out that what Mustain was trying to sell was lisdexamfetamine dimesylate which is not a controlled substance. So Mustain's case has been passed on to the city attorney, whom will then decide whether or not to charge Mustain with a misdemeanor.
Mustain could have still been charged with a felony for trying to pass the substance off as a controlled substance, but since this is his first offense it was decided to send it to the city attorney, which is par for the course in Los Angeles County.
Lisdexamfetamine dimesylate is like adderall in that it is an amphetamine, but it contains less dextroamphetamine in it, so I guess the narcotic benefits aren't nearly as strong for those kids using it recreationally.
