The last time we talked about Amanda Bynes she was crazy, and since crazy never really goes away, you’ll probably won’t be too surprised to find out that, yes, she’s still pretty crazy.
Amanda Bynes was arrested in Los Angeles Sunday after cops determined she was driving under the influence … and our law enforcement sources say she was on a STIMULANT … but we’re told she has also developed a serious weed problem … again. Here’s what we know — Bynes was driving a Mercedes in the San Fernando Valley when she stopped in the middle of an intersection on Van Nuys Blvd. A CHP officer spotted her and determined she was under the influence. She was taken to the LAPD Van Nuys division where a drug recognition officer determined she was under the influence of a stimulant. According to the incident report … Amanda had a “disheveled” appearance. Amanda was then booked for DUI. She posted $15,000 bail. Amanda has had trouble with mental problems for years now. Her parents had a conservatorship which ended earlier this month and as one source says, “Things started going haywire.” We’re told Amanda has moved out of her parents home and is now living in an Orange County apartment. We’re told she has been smoking weed for weeks and things are bad again.
Amanda was under the influence of the white girl drug of choice.
Amanda Bynes was under the influence of Adderall when she was arrested for DUI … sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ … but her problems go much deeper than a criminal case. We’ve learned the Adderall was prescribed by a doctor and she had taken the drug before getting stopped in Van Nuys Sunday and failing multiple field sobriety tests. She was arrested for DUI. Adderall is a stimulant and we’re told Amanda was “out of it” when she was stopped. Fact is … it’s no defense to DUI that the drug in question was prescribed — it’s still operating a vehicle while impaired. But Amanda now faces a probation violation — she’s on probation for reckless driving — and the fact that the drug was prescribed may help her there.
We won’t get into the fact that we’re fighting the wrong war on drugs, because of instead of cartels, America has corporations with shareholders who need you to be a walking zombie and emotionless black hole so they can keep getting their dividend checks. They don’t really cure anything, but as long as you don’t think or feel anything, your chemically altered brain doesn’t really know you have a problem until you drown your kids or shoot up a school. But I guess that’s a risk you take when you criminalize a drug that makes you sit on the couch and binge watch The Blacklist and order one too many pizzas. It would be really easy to make fun of her, but this is pretty sad and the fact her parents either are in denial or just don’t give a shit, is kinda troubling. You know what else is troubling?
