"With that said, what I believe will happen is that people will just party and bullshit, drink some Henny, go to the gravestone, and get weeded. I don't know when we're going to collectively grow the fuck up and come together and have a real conversation, but I do know that we have an opportunity right now to build something that can really save some of these kids out here."
