The convict, Joseph said while he was 14 year old he alongside his brothers will go to a park where they both found some older guys about, 20 -21 year old.
He further said these guys will stop them, calling him and his brothers to join them in smoking weed. They obliged to the call and became a smoker at a tender age.
Joseph further added that he looked up to these guys because his father was not around.
The experience of this prisoner has now been reproduced into a book and a film as well, with a project titled ‘The Father Effect’.
However the message of forgiveness was further preached, calling on affected people to leave their past and rather be a better parent to their children.
