Bon Jovi Dealt Drugs As A Teenager

JON BON JOVI worked as a drug dealer to make cash in the days before he became a rock star. The Livin' On A Prayer singer has revealed he bought and sold drugs in a bid to make "a couple (of) bucks" when he was a struggling teenage wannabe on the mean streets of his native New Jersey. He tells America's Best Life magazine, "I did the drug thing very young and wised up very young too, because I was into drugs a little too much. "I was entrepreneurial even then, buying quarter pounds of dope and trying to make a couple (of) bucks." Bon Jovi admits he was smart enough not to sample his own product - after one test trip left him suffering throughout a whole summer. He adds, "Did you ever smoke dope that was laced with PCP and then have that whole summer of hallucinations? It was f**king awful. "That's why I've never been a drug guy. I've always felt I didn't have the mental stability to handle drugs."
