Is this a joke?
I have several friends who got high and drunk in their first two years at LSU who are doctors and lawyers now.
I don't know any successful people who got caught multiple times in random girls bedrooms watching them sleep.
You are kidding right? Getting high or drunk doesn't mean you will or will not be successful in life. And I am not comparing getting high or drunk as equal to getting caught breaking into peoples homes.
What I stated was simple "getting high or drunk" can lead to doing stupid stuff. When you are chemically impaired that can lead to individuals not thinking rationally and not behaving rationally. I am not comparing which is worse. I clearly stated that breaking the law, is breaking the law and if you continually break the law eventually you will get caught and face the possibility of prison. The severity of your offense is what leads to the different prison sentences. But if you habitually break the law you run a high risk of getting caught doesn't matter what the offense is. Case in point Cecil and TM, they both broke the law and they both got caught. So in the end does it really matter why you lose opportunities in life, or just if you lost those opportunities in the first place.
Point being if both TM and Cecil did 13 years apiece in jail and one goes to jail for drugs and the other for B & E, reality is what does it matter how they lost that opportunity, only really matters is that they both lost it.
My point being - don't break the law and these conversations are moot.
