    Drugs of all forms have become a standard sight in modern day society; a well-known one being marijuana. What most people choose to ignore, myself included, is that it is illegal for a reason. I was caught selling it, and it ruined a lot of good in my life. I had a caring foster family, who took me in and treated me like I was no different from their own flesh and blood. Looking back now, I should have cherished it more, knowing I could lose it over something I did. There is not one day that does
