My bet is the little guy on the far left is totally innocent and only got picked up with the rest because he was wearing a tshirt with a huge marijuana leaf on it. He does look like he is regretting his choice of clothing.

I bet he is just a '' trainee '' . One day he will be on the wagon with the rest as a pusher.

Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
