His story is very similar to others who have died from drug abuse.
But unlike the others who are buried in cemeteries all over America, Jeff Thompson is alive to tell his story.
And he wants kids to listen.
He spoke to the Las Vegas Sun about his ignorance regarding the strength of drugs, the place where drugs eventually took his close drug-using friends, and the best advice he can live from now that he’s sober.
He started using marijuana at 12, evolved to pills at 14, and moved on to heroin by 16.
He told the Sun’s Jackie Valley, “Unfortunately, most of my friends passed away or are in jail,” he said. “There’s not really an in-between.”
Kids that get high should read Jeff Thompson’s story. He said he had no idea how addictive pills were.
And explains, something we’ve illustrated many times, that a balloon of heroin becomes much cheaper than the pills.
