Regardless of when and where he grew up and how you feel about pot being illegal— the fact remains these were illegal activities. Had he been caught, he would have gone to jail, may not have finished school much less college. I thought we lived in a country where we sustain the law and work to change those laws we feel need changed. Hate to break it to you all but many people grew up in the 70’s without being a druggie. It sounds like he was more than “experimenting”. He was an expert druggie and law evading punk.
