Child abuse is never cool.

I didn't start drinking til I was 20, weed a couple of months before I turned 21. All of my smoker friends told me they started between the ages of 8-12. And I've always kinda wondered what the draw was for giving a child Marijuana? Like why do folks do that?

Of course it's pretty obvious, but dark and sad.

His dad's stage name was Blackie Dammett, and the only time I had ever seen him was in National Lampoon's Class Reunion and as a thug in Lethal Weapon.

Eerily handsome guy, but not the sharpest knife in the drawer. He had given a tearful testimony about how badly he screwed up his kid, thinking that introducing Anthony to drugs at such a young age would make him the coolest dad ever. I've grown up with kids who experimented early, and it was almost always the same tragedy on some level or the next. The ones who recovered in turn became the coolest, most successful but humble guys I know.

I don't know if I would judge Blackie as "evil" but definitely stupid. He's been in the ground for nearly two years now, so I don't suppose it matters.

Strange somehow I would expected him to smoke under a bridge

Funny, pot heads were considered losers/counter culture, at least in the 70s and 80s.

Well, that was going to go one of two ways.
