If I understand correctly, the bottom-line issue here is that your mother
took/stole the medication that was for your son.

It is a controlled substance, and your mom needs to understand that, in the event
she is stopped by law enforcement, she will likely be arrested if it is in her
possession.

That said, I do understand that your living with your parents puts you between a rock
and a hard spot. Do your parents understand that your child is for YOU to raise,
not them?

I wouldn’t argue with mom about it, but I would let her know that she has greatly
overstepped her bounds, and even though you live in her home, it is not her decision
to make about what medications her grandson is taking. By not putting any effort into
understanding what ADHD actually is, and how it affects a young brain, she has no
right (legal, or otherwise) to intervene.

Hopefully, there will be an opportunity for you to move out of their house, soon,
as that would be the best solution.
