It's the 90s, all kids "had ADHD" so the parents could have an excuse to drug them.

Yeah, that was a thing. Most of the kids I knew stopped by the time they hit college, but those who still had prescriptions made quite a bit selling their adderall to others who wanted to cram.

Well depending on if it was the same and the condition I hope you got around $500 to $1000 for it.

That's what I figure. Got it all for about $650. Now the fun begins figuring out the existing wireing. Going to have to do some sheetrock repair taking out the existing rear in ceiling speakers.
