Stuart says he smokes marijuana all day, every day, and has been doing so for years. The 55-year-old veteran claims he started smoking marijuana at age 5, and now he can’t stop getting high. He says he needs to be “wasted” in order to function.

“Marijuana controls everything I do,” he says. “I have to have at least a bowl full of weed with me at all times.”

Stuart’s wife, Renee, says the problem is that he isn’t functioning and now his health is at risk.
