Courtland Rogers, Jenelle Evans' husband and a hardcore drug fiend, has shared a video of himself getting high on the drug that killed Philip Seymour Hoffman.
In the wake of Hoffman’s tragic demise, as well as the loss of beloved Glee star Cory Monteith just months ago, Radar and Rogers have jointly published this.
In the sickening footage, ostensibly shared to show the impact of the narcotic, Rogers gazes into the camera, mixes the heroin in a small cap and fills a syringe.
Rogers, who is still technically married to Jenelle Evans of Teen Mom 2, then flicks the syringe, slumps forward and injects it into his tattooed right arm.
“I did relapse, see all my track marks,” he boasts to camera, then within seconds of shooting the heroin, Rogers slurs: “Now I am officially high as hell.”
After kicking his habit in jail, Courtland Rogers says he is now clean and determined to help others avoid the dangerous drug by revealing his experiences.
“Heroin gave me the most euphoric high,” he told Radar in an exclusive interview this week. “It was a feeling of finally being loved by something.”
But that love quickly turned sour. He said, “It got to the point where I had to have it, where I'd do anything in the world to feel that high and not get sick.”
“In the past six months, I have lost four friends to heroin,” Rogers revealed. “That is four families without their loved ones, one being my own cousin.”
“It overpowers you and takes you away from everything! It kills."
"After a while, you do it just to not get sick. You don’t even get high, it’s just not to get sick. It is insane! You disappear from reality and forget about everything except [heroin]."
But now, he says he has a new perspective on the world.
“My life without it in it makes complete sense. I don’t have to do it to stay alive now and I can actually live my life to the fullest without any drugs.”
Here's hoping people learn from this cautionary tale.
