The CBS report also indicated that after smoking pot, Juarez said he’d had an epiphany and then ran around wildly. He went into his apartment, got a knife and stabbed himself 20 times. CBS reports that Erika Juarez said “I lost my brother to it. It’s not harmless, it can kill people and most people don’t see that.”
