This drug is used in ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and narcolepsy. This is the reason police investigation is searching for involvement of some medical faculty in the case. This drug increases dopamine in our body which causes happy feelings. That's why drug addicts use this very often.
