What about the fact that his drug test came back clean? Does that negate the issue? He states that he was unaware that it was a prescription drug, just thought it was something to keep him awake. He says he did'nt realize what he was doing was illegal. So his "intent" was to take something that was going to keep him up, something that he thought was similar to caffeine. But apparently it was a placebo. The field test must have been showing signs of a young person in distress, because he was clearly not under the influence. Also the kid that he bought it from was someone he did'nt know. Apparently someone from another school in SoCal. So he could not give any info on this person.
