This kid is 16 has been involved with drink & drugs most of his life as are probably his own parents who are probably aged about 30 . He probably at this stage himself has become a father .
He will enter prison and depending on what gang he is with will enter that landing where the chances are a lot of his family and relations are and hone up his skills .
There was a time that the traveler community would never touch hard core drugs they would sell them move them around but never take them themselves , About 15 years that changed and we have now huge out of control kids who will do anything including murder for drugs .
We no longer have industrial schools or proper detention centers and the problems with these children will only get worse
