(1) I've heard that Japanese customs don't kick up a big fuss over certain cough medicines that aren't legal in Japan - they just confiscate them and let the passenger go on her way, apparently.

(2) I know that the consequences for folks who smuggle recreational drugs typically involve jail sentences.

I doubt whether anyone on this forum can tell you for sure whether a person caught smuggling Adderall would be treated as (1) or (2) or something between the two. Safest thing would be to visit without it or not visit.
