Don't use heroin.

(Please note: I am having trouble uploading images to this thing right now... I will do my best to post the awesome mugshot picture).

Leif Garrett was arrested for drug possession. Again.

Some people know Leif as a former teen star from the 1970s, and had a hit song "I Was Made For Dancing." Others probably don't remember that, but they do remember his amazing VH1 "Behind the Music," which I thought was the best one that they did. He went from being a superstar that was being held down and not able to do the music he really wanted to do, to dabbling in drugs and alcohol at a young age, and getting in a car accident, leaving his friend Roland paralyzed. The episode then documents Leif and Roland's emotional reunion. Now that was good TV.

Although it was pretty funny to find out that Roland became a porn producer and probably met his wife thanks to his porn connections.

Anyways, Leif has been trying to kick his drug habit for many years. In this "Behind the Music," his friends and family held an intervention for him which he did not like, but ultimately said that he "kicked heroin cold turkey with meds" (after his then gf Nicolette Sheridan drove him to rehab).

He seemed to be getting his life back together somewhat. He was in a couple of bands, and Melissa and I actually went to see his band F8 perform at TT the Bear's in Central Square, just because we thought it would be funny. And it was... we saw Leif before the show hitting on some girls in this bar/restaurant nearby, and he totally looked trashed.

And now, this. The mugshot is classic. Kids, this is what you'll look like on heroin. Don't do it.
