What Happened to Jonah Johnston?

Jonah Johnston admitted that he took a synthetic drug called Delta 8. The 7 Little Johnstons star said he and his friends researched about it and gave it a try.

But Jonah consumed the same amount his average-sized buddies took. It was too much for him, and he knew right away he was in big trouble. Jonah immediately got paranoid when the drug wouldn't wear off.

Delta-8 is a "psychoactive substance" found in the Cannabis sativa plant. It supposedly produces a "euphoric, fuzzy feeling," but on a "milder" level. While Delta-8 is legal in some states, it's not FDA-approved.
