I started using marijuana when I was 15.  It started as a hobby but eventually became a crutch that I used to deal with my depression over the death of some friends.  After that I became more rebellious and angry at any source of authority.  This led me to become careless.  I drove to school with both marijuana and a firearm, and when the drug dogs found me out, my life changed forever.  At PAYH I have developed a solid work ethic and rebuilt my relationship with my family.  Now I am headed to community college and to learn the family business with my father.
