When you take drugs and alcohol it's like putting yourself on a rollercoaster ride that ends on your death bed. Your mother and father could have paid your way to college, you could be going to a division 1 school for sports, you could even be in your first year of a professional sport, but once you take that one puff of marijuana or the one shot of Grey Goose, all of those privileges will be gone forever. That yellow brick road that you had is now black and hard to walk on. Although many high paid icons such as lil Wayne, Wiz Kahlifa, Birdman, Rick Ross, and many more promote drugs and alcohol it’s a really destructive message. It's not too late to get off of that rollercoaster of death and get back on that yellow brick road.
