Lauren Conrad has partnered up with the Natural High Network to create a new PSA about why it's just not cool to do drugs. The successful designer and author talks about her life growing up in Laguna Beach, Calif., and how her passion for fashion kept her focused and out of trouble.
What's extra awesome about this PSA is that it plays like a mini-documentary. Sure, we've seen plenty of docu-style footage of LC on Laguna Beach and The Hills, but in this video, we get to hear from LC herself, check out childhood photos and get the inside scoop from her parents.
Although Lauren remembers people using drugs in her school from as early as 6th or 7th grade, she says she never wanted anything to do with them, especially in high school. "You're getting ready to go to college within a few years and you're worried about your GPA and worried about your future," she says. "And I think that when you're so involved in drugs, you have such a lack of interest there, and you just don't really care about your future."
What's great about the PSA is that Lauren keeps things real like she always does. She doesn't preach, she just tells her story from the level-headed perspective that we've grown to love. "I don't know that there was one specific thing that encouraged me to not do drugs. I just genuinely didn't want to do them," she explains. "They didn't see that cool to me and didn't look that fun, so I just didn't really have an interest."
