Two CU students charged with selling Adderall on campus

University of Colorado in Boulder

BOULDER, Colo. — Two University of Colorado students have been arrested and charged with selling Adderall, University Police said Thursday.

Christopher Valentine and Graham Hankin sold the prescription pills to acquaintances on campus. Valentine charged $4 per pill and Hankin charged $5 per pill. Both are facing felony criminal charges.

Police say Adderall and Vyvanse are often sold as “study aid” drugs, especially around the time of final exams, which begin Saturday. The drugs help those trying to stay awake or focused while studying.

“While perhaps tempting, it is against the law to use or possess study aid drugs that are not prescribed to you,” CU Police Corporal Matthew DeLaria said. “It is also illegal for those with legitimate prescriptions to provide their drugs to others.”
