I’ve got a new shipment. It’s enough to satisfy your needs for at least a month. How much are you paying?
Early one morning, once the radiant sun had risen over the horizon, Alex awoke from his bed. He looked over at his bedside table, and saw that his phone was blowing up with messages.
It was Alex’s drug dealer, Tony.
Alex was a regular customer who was purchasing marijuana illegally from Tony for over a year. He caught wind that all his friends were doing marijuana, so he thought he’d do it too because it seemed like the right thing to do in order to fit in.
Unfortunately for Alex, he could barely even afford to buy his last dose of marijuana, which he tried to use sparingly. He was in his last year of high school, and he didn’t have a job. He saved up the allowance that his parents paid him when he did his chores.
Alex reached for his wallet, but when he looked inside, he realized that he only had a $5 bill left. He knew that wouldn’t be enough to even get him his daily dosage. Even if Alex did his chores, the allowance wouldn’t be enough to pay for his fix, let alone, his daily fix.
