Tyler Baltierra has exposed his past struggle with substance abuse, but the Teen Mom OG star revealed he's still using drugs today.

When Catelynn Lowell's husband asked Twitter fans their opinion of marijuana users, he admitted to smoking weed "whenever I have free time."

"Marijuana is only bad if the user makes it bad," he wrote. "Alcohol is only bad when the user abuses it… crack, heroin & meth? #ScrewAllThat."

Despite his drug use, Baltierra revealed he puts his 1-year-old daughter Novalee first when he retweeted, "As long as a person has his bills paid, food in the house & babies taken care of FIRST I don't think it's a problem."

Baltierra, 24, then confessed to experimenting with more drugs in his past.

"I have a defective brain & used coke, pills, shrooms, LSD, ecstasy, etc," he tweeted. "I just chose not to deny my weakness w/ drugs."

In Baltierra and Lowell's book Conquering Chaos, he admitted to experimenting with alcohol, cigarettes and marijuana at only 8 years old.

"One day we came across one of my uncle's bags of weed," he wrote. "We basically knew what it was, but we didn't know what to do with it…so we just kind of stuck it on top and burned it."

Baltierra then began using regularly with his then-girlfriend Lowell.

"We messed around with pretty much anything we could get our hands on," he wrote, adding that they drank cough syrup, snorted pills and huffed air duster. Baltierra then turned to cocaine, which Lowell put a stop to immediately.
