This Week in the OC Weekly

PhotobucketIn "Who's Your Addy?" Matt Coker looks at Adderall. It's hailed as a "miracle drug" for ADHD sufferers. But they're not the only ones using it. One South County clinic is trying to help OC kick "college crack."

In "This Is Your Brain On Adderall" Matt Coker looks for someone to explain to our readers how Adderall actually works, chemically speaking, and finds his own son, Dustin Coker—who not only is a research assistant in a UC Irvine study involving ADHD and psychostimulants, but who also grew up with ADHD.

In "Moxley Confidential" R. Scott Moxley reveals how the OC media is being asked to ignore still-emerging dirt on Carona’s PSR mess at the sheriff’s department.

In "Toeing the Line" Nick Schou interviews perennial Democratic candidate Paul Lucas, who says he’s still in trouble for playing footsie with the Republicans.
