Lindsay Lohan's lawyer denies Adderall was involved in plea deal
According to Lindsay Lohan's lawyer Mark Heller, there was no discussion of Adderall during her plea deal with the judge on her lying-to-police case.
"That was never a part of any discussion with the prosecutors or the court. That was never an issue we addressed," Heller said, as reported by The New York Daily News.
"Prosecutors or the court would never interject themselves into medical determinations," he continued. "Patients traditionally apprise facilities of what medications, if any, they're prescribed, and after a full series of medical evaluations, each facility determines what medications, if any, are going to be allowed. This is never dictated by the patient. It's always determined by medical staff who are well qualified."
Reports of Lohan's alleged Adderall deal lined up with her history with the drug. According to Lohan's probation reports from 2010, the former child star has been taking Adderall "for as long as she can remember." The original TMZ report claimed that Lohan's case has had many problems because she's been trying to find a way to continue taking Adderall in rehab. Lohan's plea deal requires her to spend 90 days of residential rehab, 30 days of community service and 19 months of counseling.
