if you had no way of getting money, would you sell drugs?

I have a friend from Miami. He was kicked out at age of 13 and forced to fend for himself. He is now 22 years old with no education and really wants a life. He has been selling drugs to survive. Before I receive a bunch of responses regarding the morality of selling drugs, I know its not a good thing to get involved in. However, I do think that people are forced into things sometimes just to get by. He didnt have any family here. He has no education over the 7th grade. He needed a place to stay and food to eat. Honestly he doesnt do anything wrong with the money he makes. I know the whole thing is wrong. Isnt there a time when doing whatever you have to live is the issue? What do you think? Would you do it? Please remember not as a day to day decision. Out of despair you would do it.

I would not, because after well i'm kinda educated, so I do not need to resort to that.. I believe in being morally upright and desperation may be a reason for crime, but it will not keep you out of jail!
