Allen Iverson explains why he stopped smoking marijuana: "I'm going out like this?!"

Allen Iverson, a former NBA superstar known for his flashy style of play and cultural impact, struggled with bad habits during retirement. In a GQ interview, he shared a story about getting high with a friend before a party on the Virginia Peninsula and experiencing a scary trip that could have ended in tragedy. He walked on the interstate, got kicked out of a bar, cursed people out, and drove recklessly before ending up in a ditch. This life-changing moment made Iverson vow never to smoke again and put him back on the right path. While having fun is not bad, too much of anything can be disastrous.
