I take me wherever I go: Luke’s journey

Luke and his big brother didn’t get along, until they started smoking marijuana together. But what started as a bonding experience became a slippery slope for Luke’s addictive personality. Next came pills, then heroin. Luke is about to celebrate seven years clean, and he talks with Theo about what he’s learned along the way.
