Leif Garrett is famous for being a 1970’s teenage hero. Since then, his legal issues have stalked him since the day he smashed up his automobile while under the influence of alcohol and Quaalude. The vehicle accident left his best friend disabled and also lost Garrett $7.1 million as a result of a negligence legal case.
Since then, Garrett has been thrown in jail several times and attended rehab many times also. His substances of choice stemming from his jail time appear to be heroin and cocaine. Battling the addiction has not been easy on him yet his professional life has not been penalized because of the addiction. His career has been in full force, but it did slow down after 2000 as he has become older. He was included in the cast of Celebrity Rehab with Jeremy London and Jason Wahler and exposed the show for requesting him to use drugs so they could record his addiction. Leif has said that it took little effort or convincing for him to agree to use for the filming.
