It ends with jails, rapes, poverty, and a downward spital into drug addiction. Freebasing, shooting up, sniffing dope, Poochie has done is all. By the time she is 21 she is addicted to heroin and crack cocaine and the mother of four young children. When she comes blasting into a local hospital's emergency room at the age of 33 Poochie had destroyed most of her body, mind, and soul beyond repair. She faced a devastating choice, accept that she won't see 34 or accept the reality of her life and take drastic action.

It's this geneeration's most honest, eye opening approach about drug dependency and survival in the drug plagued, violent streets of Baltimore.

I would have given it a higher rating if it had not been for all of the grammatical and editing errors. Drove me crazy?!
