  • I ended up being addicted to heroin, coke, meth.

  • I've done it all. And it all started with pot.

  • Marijuana is the dry parts of the Indian hemp plant.

  • Hashish is the sticky crystalline that comes off when they pick it.

  • A lot of it it's like from Mexico, shipped over the borders.

  • A lot of people manufacture their own and sell it.

  • Hydroponics is a system of growing weed.

  • There's a lot of science, there's a lot of chemistry that go into wanting to make it stronger.

  • And comparing it to what was available in the 60s and 70s, there is a huge difference in potency.

  • It's so much more stronger. It's so much more intense,

  • and so much more damaging to the body.

  • The main mind-altering drug ingredient in marijuana is THC.

  • The THC is what gets you high.

  • This drug is a hallucinogen, distorts your reality.

  • It can be green, brown or gray.

  • It's compressed most of the time into brick forms that are real compressed.

  • And they bag it into pounds, ounces, quarter ounces.

  • So weed is either smoked or baked.

  • You can smoke it from a bong, a pipe, you can roll it up as a joint.

  • Some people, they'll dissolve the marijuana in butter

  • and they'll make pot brownies, pot cookies, whatever food they want to ingest it with.

  • I was wrestling, I was in football, went to school, got A's. You know, I was a good kid.

  • I had this dream, I was going to make sure that I had an education.

  • I was a B student. And then I went from that to C, D.

  • I pushed aside my studies, I pushed aside any sports to do the drug.

  • I didn't want to go to school. I missed school all the time. I didn't graduate because of it.

  • Everything kind of slipped away. I lost the glimpse of hope I had.

  • I was probably 13, 14, something like that.

  • I started smoking weed when I was 14, I think.

  • 17 -- can't forget that day.

  • I saw pot everywhere when I first started doing it. It made it okay for me.

  • I was with a friend. She was like, "It is, it's an herb, it's grown,"

  • "it's safe, it's natural and there's no problem with it."

  • I knew other people did it. It seemed harmless at the time to me.

  • Take a puff and pass it to your buddy sitting next to you.

  • No one ever passed it up, everyone always took a hit.

  • It started off as something very casual and fun.

  • And then within a few weeks, it was something that became an everyday habit.

  • And then it just turned into a sort of like escapism, just to get away from everything.

  • I smoked weed so I didn't have to deal with life.

  • It was kind of taking place of life.

  • There's a common misconception that weed is not like -- addictive.

  • I never thought I was addicted to marijuana.

  • I thought it was just something that was part of my life style. I thought it helped me relax.

  • I'd become so accustomed to being stoned every night.

  • When I wasn't doing it, it was out of the norm.

  • Once you smoke it, you really don't feel like you can do anything without it.

  • You just feel so high. You just want to be high for everything you do.

  • And there was nothing that I wanted to do with my day other than smoke weed.

  • It was so weird. That was my driven purpose.

  • See, I always had this idea in my mind that

  • I can live life and smoke weed at the same time. But I never could.

  • I'd want to get high every day. I'd want to get high when I woke up in the mornings.

  • My mind was so set on having it, that it preoccupied so much of my thinking, that that became all that I did. That was all I thought about.

  • If I ran out of weed, I'd be pretty -- pretty mad.

  • Irritable and annoyed with everything.

  • I was tired. I was nervous. I was anxious.

  • 'Cause I couldn't sleep without it. I'd be up for days when I tried to stop.

  • It's an emotional roller coaster. It's very hard on you.

  • I'd feel depressed by not having done anything better with my life,

  • but I'd still use the drug to hide from the problem.

  • I was actually Prom King. The drug dogs came to school. And I had some joint roaches

  • in the ashtray of my truck -- and they found them. I got kicked out of school for it.

  • I dropped out of school. I had no job, I had no money to pay rent.

  • It unconsciously separated me from my family,

  • and I was always concerned with like, when I was going to go out and party.

  • And it just... the priority list of like friends or family just slipped underneath.

  • I stopped trying. And when that started,

  • that was -- it just led to a different life style.

  • If I needed to get a job interview that included a drug test,

  • I wouldn't take that job, because I couldn't stop using it.

  • I had a BMW. And I loved that car, I loved it.

  • I was so high and I just floored it, just went all out in it.

  • And I took a curve and I lost it -- flipped the car over.

  • And my first reaction -- I had a quarter pound of weed in there

  • -- and my first reaction was: grab the bag full of my weed.

  • One of my friends was smoking pot, him and a buddy.

  • He was going like 80, went off the road and hit a tree. Killed my other buddy.

  • I wound up in prison. I served 3 years, 11 months and 19 days.

  • I've been locked up -- since I started smoking, about 12 or 14 times.

  • I went to jail -- been facing charges ever since. I got a felony on my record.

  • It ruins your chance to get a good job, it ruins your chances to get anywhere.

  • Once you have a record, that's it. So it's...

  • it's not fun -- at all.

  • People say marijuana is a gateway drug. I mean, you can argue that all you want, if it is or it isn't.

  • The fact of the matter is, when you smoke pot, the people that you hang out with are going to have other drugs around you.

  • Eventually you're going to run into it.

  • As much as I hate the word "gateway drug," I'm the prime example of it.

  • And I know lots of other people who followed the same path.

  • I basically realized that my gateway to those drugs was the fact that I couldn't stop smoking weed on a daily basis.

  • 'Cause eventually you build a tolerance and then you stop getting high.

  • So you still crave a high. So you go out and look for other drugs.

  • Which of course were even harder drugs.

  • So that's how I tried coke.

  • I'd go over to another friend's house and people would show up with mushrooms,

  • "Hey, you want to buy mushrooms?"

  • After that I started doing cocaine and Oxycodone.

  • -- Do some heroin... -- Introduced to coke, Xanax, Ecstasy, all that stuff.

  • I wouldn't have touched any of that stuff because I wouldn't even know what being high was.

  • So once you get high, it just changes everything.

  • Maybe nothing horrible is going to happen to you those first 10 times you do it.

  • But before you know it, it's going to be a huge component of your life.

  • Personally, I wish I would have just avoided it. I know people who have grown up

  • and never smoked weed and are perfectly fine,

  • they're socially accepted, they have great lives.

  • It's all a big hype, you know what I mean. They just tell you that,

  • "Oh yeah, you just get high, whatever. Everything will go away." That's BS.

  • The problems that you had before you got high are still going to be there when you're done being high.

  • You're going to ruin relationships, you're going to get yourself in trouble with the law,

  • you're going to screw your finances up, you're going to screw your future up.

  • It took away my chances of wrestling in college or playing football in college, going to college for academics -- because I was capable.

  • And that is all gone.

  • So now I can't vote,

  • I can't do anything as a normal citizen.

  • I would have been in college right now, about to graduate,

  • probably going for something decent, a good degree, get a job, get my life together

  • -- not going through what I'm going through right now.

  • It wasn't something that was harmless.

  • Smoking pot ended up taking my life away and leading me into another life that I never wanted.

I ended up being addicted to heroin, coke, meth.
