Former drug addict, gang member helps Iowa City youth


 Jason Watson was 12 years old when he started smoking pot. 

 A year later, he was selling drugs to anyone he could, including his own mother. 

Before he was old enough to drive, the St. Louis native was snorting heroin, running with the Gangster's Disciples and robbing people at gunpoint for drug money.

So, what is Watson -- now almost 30 -- doing teaching youth in Iowa City's southeast neighborhood about God and Jesus Christ, when -- by his own admission

-- he probably shouldn't be alive?
