MICHAEL DOUGLAS' SON ARRESTED FOR METH
New York Post ^ | August 3, 2009 | TOM LIDDY

Posted on 08/03/2009 11:03:11 PM PDT by tlb

The son of actor Michael Douglas was arrested in New York for possessing a massive amount of crystal meth with intent to distribute it, law enforcement sources said this evening.

Cameron Douglas, 30, was busted on July 28 at the Gansevoort Hotel by a DEA task force, the sources said.

The bust stemmed from an undercover operation that determined Douglas had allegedly had a half-a-pound of the drug.

Meth-man in NYC seems like a saturated job field. On the other hand he deserves some credit for taking the economic initiative rather then sponging off dad.

As rich as his family is, you wouldn’t think that he would need cash.

Yeah, I have a feeling the DA is just piling on the "distribution" charge because that's what DAs do. Douglas probably picked up the half-pound of meth for a regular weekend party.

LOL! I guess the hedge funds “ain’t” hiring. I think being the son of someone rich and famous might suck a lot more than most people think.

It is especially true when your step mom is hot and at 30 you are a bit porky and look as old as your old man.

Having a liberal jerk o*f ego maniac old man cannot help either.

I’m wondering exactly who he was selling it to unless it was a direct sale to a DEA agent. Meth is not as big in New York City as in some states. While there are some meth freaks in the outer suburbs, Pot, Cocaine, crack and heroin remain the big sellers here and even now the massive drug busts of years past are rare.

I’ll never forgive him for the racist things he said about Ray Charles.

Every day! Every day! Every day! Every day I inject the meth.

That kid needs to go through some kind of rigorous military basic training. He looks like he’s never done a hard day’s work in his entire life.

He's rumored to be worth millions in the form of a trust fund yet was eviced for not paying his $4200 a month rent.

Typical spoiled liberal brat.

Apparently, a 1/2 Lb looks like it may be for casual use with young Mr. Douglas.

Except in the gay community, where Meth is quite popular. Makes me wonder if the kid is gay or bi.

That kid...

Hardly a kid at 30....the man should know better than to be messing with drugs...yet, as posted above, his rich daddy will get him a rich lawyer who'll probably be able to keep his butt out of the slammer...unlike many others who will do time because they don't have rich daddies to pay for expensive lawyers...such is the way...in the US of A.

IIRC, Michael had a half brother who died due to drug abuse a few years ago. I hate to see any life wasted. I sincerely hope that the guy turns his it around.

In the picture in the Post, the kid looks like the straight one. The father looks like (1) his suit came from Goodwill, (2) he has slept in it, and (3) he had just come off a knee-crawling drinking session.

Any idea what half a pound of meth would be as a charge and sentencing? I would guess that is quite a lot. I know the drug laws go up with the amount. Daddy’s gonna be spending a lot of $$ to try to save sonny boy.

Gansevoort Hotel

(Coincidence alert!): I was actually at the lounge in said hotel on that day. Didn't see anyone who resembled Michael Douglas or a Tweeker on that occasion.

A druggie in their twenties is sad, one in their thirties is pathetic...

In old NY, he would have gotten life for that much on him.

These days, he may get drug diversion.. he will do some pokey time too.. it’s a series felony charge. not a good spot to be in.

Thank Goodness NY is full of lawyers. He won’t have to look far for a few good ones..

if you posses above a certain weight, the law stipulates that your intent is to sell it since it cannot be for personal use.

it simply has to do with the weight of the drugs.
