You know, like possibly cause you to have kids with genetic issues or mess up your own DNA codes? Or is this a myth? And I'm talking about a person who once abused drugs, but doesn't anymore. I just wanna know if it has an effect.

It doesn't alter your DNA. It can turn certain genes on or off though, most likely those associated with addictive behavior. It CAN mess up your reproductive system in both men and women, and make it more likely that your child will be born with a birth defect or unhealthy, probably how the rumor got started. However DNA itself will remain unaffected.0
