Helping Women Escape 'The Life'

As darkness falls, Joy Friedman hits the streets - the same ones she used to troll for customers while working as a prostitute.

"My last trick was turned behind that storefront," she said, gesturing to a nearby building.

Now the survivor of sex trafficking cruises these neighborhoods with a different purpose. She's looking for women and girls who are caught up in this lifestyle so she can offer them free condoms and hygiene products.

She is also delivering a message: There is help for them if they want it.

Friedman works for Breaking Free, a nonprofit that helps women escape prostitution. It's where she got help 13 years ago.

"(Prostitution) has been happening forever. And forever, women have just been the victims of it," said Vednita Carter, the organization's founder. "They deserve better."

Since 1996, Carter says she has helped more than 6,000 women get the support they need. In the process, she's built an army of survivors who have joined her crusade to end sex trafficking.

JFK Nephew Against Legalizing Weed, Discusses Nature of Addiction

Christopher Kennedy Lawford, author of "What Addicts Know," stopped by "New Day" to talk about his stance on legalizing marijuana and his book that addresses addiction.

Lawford said he's against the legalization of pot because "It's not good policy. I think it's going to cost money down the road."

On addiction, Lawford said he hopes his book will allow people who don't understand addiction to "get a sense of it."

Girl Scouts Help Catch Supermarket Thieves

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," Girl Scouts and their moms help stop shoplifters in Houston. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

A local troop set up a booth to sell their Girl Scout cookies at an HEB grocery store, when members said they noticed a suspicious man wheeling a cart out the store doors.

Mary Mathews, whose daughter is a troop member, said the man's cart had loose items and nothing was placed in HEB plastic or paper bags. So the group kept the man in its sights.

“He was stealing a lot of stuff,” said Girl Scout Hailey Matthews.

HEB store service director Denise Villarreal said the troop was right. Villarreal said the man actually had an accomplice and together they were caught stealing about $2,000 worth of goods, including wine, appliances and groceries. Villarreal said she called police and officers arrested the men.

“We caught the bad guy,” said Hailey.
