Drugs and the impact
I might be only 16, but I have been through hell and back. when i was 2 my parents divorced and my father and my mother started on drugs. my father kicked me out of the house when i was only 7. I went to live with my grandmother for a little while, when a week passed by My mother got custody of me and i went to louisiana and i started to get crazy as a kid. when i was 13? i was sent into foster care and ever since i have been down the road of addiction although i have stopped the weed which i know is a gateway drug i know that i could and most likely will go back to it............. which is scary and so for now i have stopped hoping that i will not go back to it.
