    With all due respect, I don't buy it. I am sorry about your step-kids, but unless mass quantities of Doritos and driving really slow leads to sticking a syringe in your arm or smoking crack, I suspect that there were other influences at work.

    I don't get meth. When I was in high school and college, none of my friends could stand the stuff. Not only did it fry their nerves, and encourage copious consumption of alcohol, it was like snorting fish hooks compared to cocaine.
    Stupidity is the gateway drug.

    I was always a large pizza with everything type person myself. Marijuana munchies and pizza go together like a horse and carriage... That's what I've always been told anyway.
