Lucy’s younger brother, Josh, was recently discovered using marijuana.  s response to his parents when confronted was, “It’s just an herb!  Grandma Ella says as long as it is natural, it is good.”  In truth, Grandma Ella has not said anything about marijuana and does not know that Josh has been using it. Sam Miller, Lucy and Josh’s uncle, is 50 years old and divorced.  He works as a foreman on the Maldonado produce farm.  He is an alcoholic and has been diagnosed with severe substance use disorder due to his alcohol addiction.  s alcohol use is affecting his position as the foreman.   Over the past few months, he has experienced emotional outbursts, missed work, and started arguments with the workers, third-party wholesalers, and Al Goldberg (Olson family).  Sam has been upset that his parents sold the family farm to the Maldonado family instead of passing it down to him.
