    9. 9. It all started one summer day on a street corner in Yonkers, New York, when Alby was 13. “You need to get your mind right. Hit this blunt,” a friend said.<br />Alby didn’t have the strength to say no. He felt he had to smoke the blunt (a cigar hollowed out and refilled with marijuana) to fit in. He desperately wanted to belong.<br />His parents had never been there for him. They were drug addicts themselves and couldn’t handle the demands of parenting. So, Alby bounced from a foster home to his grandmother’s to a group home. When he was about 14, his mother died.<br />“I wasn’t supposed to go through this,” Alby says. “I had a grudge against the world.”<br />After trying marijuana (also called weed, grass, pot, herb, boom, Mary Jane, and chronic) to fit in, Alby kept abusing the drug because he enjoyed the intoxicated feeling marijuana creates. “It had me in another state of mind,” he says. “I was relaxed. All my problems seemed like they were disappearing.”<br />At 18, Alby was living a nightmare behind bars. He felt he was in constant physical danger. “I saw people get stabbed,” he toldScholastic. And he experienced daily indignities. “I couldn’t eat the food they served. The potatoes were like blocks and the meat didn’t taste like meat,” he says.<br />Believe it or not, getting arrested was probably the best thing that could have happened to Alby. It got him into treatment for his drug problem.<br />When we spoke to Alby, he was 1 month into his recovery at a drug rehabilitation center in Westchester, New York.<br /> Over the next 5 years, Alby smoked marijuana every day, several times a day. He went to school high and eventually dropped out. “I was losing focus. My attention went from 100 to 0. I was depressed,” he says.<br />Despite the consequences, Alby kept smoking marijuana. In fact, he was willing to do anything to get high.<br />Eventually, he started dealing drugs to support his habit. That’s what landed him in a maximum-security jail.<br />Alby’s Story<br />
