Often times in the rap industry we hear the likes of Coedine aka “Purple Drank” used in lyrics.  So much so, it has become a custom to see artist in videos holding 2 white foam cups depicting “Purple Drank” as its contents.  Well often times in this era, we hear things and don’t fully understand the substance.  We hear about these fades that are made cool because our favorite rapper talks about it in lyrics or depicts it in a video, but we often times don’t see or don’t fully understand the impact that is associated with such drugs in the grand scheme of things.

Here is a story of former defensive end, Johnny Jolly, who most recently had a career with the Green Bay Packers up until 2009.  He was suspened for the 2010 season, the same year the Packers won the Super Bowl, for Coedine use.  During this time, his life when into a downhill trend as he was separated from organization and players that could have been there for him.  Instead, trouble found him and someone who once had a promising football career will now spend the next 6 years of his life behind bars because of illegal drug use.  This is an unfortunate story and one that should be heard by all to gain understanding of how drugs can in fact take over and rule our lives!

The preview story is below but the FULL STORY is definately worth the watch!
