It's like there is no apprehension once they are on the drug. And their egos manifest at the same time.

The Dodd kid is interesting. He seems self aware. He knew and understood the risks of what he and his buddies were doing. He knew when the heat was on him. And yet he didn't pull out of the nosedive.

Whereas the Little General's inhibitions and moral compass were completely, totally disabled.

When you take kids, and roll in addiction, this is what happens. It's awful.

Time will tell if they get on the right path.
