Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Admits to Using Cocaine, Hallucinogenic Mushrooms and Crack
New York Daily News ^ | Wednesday, July 2, 2014 | Terence M. Cullen

Ford, who returned to work this week after a stint in rehab, blamed his woes on using 'every drug you can probably think of.' But he said he never tried heroin, and he never did drugs in City Hall. The mayor is up for re-election in October.

Liquor-loving, crack-smoking Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is blaming his woes on using “every drug you can probably think of.”

Ford, who just this week returned to work after a stint in rehab, admitted Wednesday he dabbled with cocaine, hallucinogenic mushrooms and crack -- the last he still claims he wasn’t addicted to.

But he never tried heroin, he said.

And while Ford said he drank at work, he never did drugs within City Hall.

Ford made the remarks in interviews with the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. and CP24, a Toronto-based cable channel.

"I'm taking it one day at a time,” he said. “I did not drink yesterday, I haven't drunk today."

The embattled leader of Canada’s biggest city is now working on a comeback after a two-month stint in rehab for drug and alcohol abuse. He’s up for re-election this October.

The mayor’s leadership began to crumble last year after allegations surfaced that he smoked crack, which he finally admitted he might have done during one of his “drunken stupors.”

How did ever have time to be mayor?

Is it possible he is the illegitimate son of Lohan?

Maybe he should switch from crack to marijuana.

I hope he keeps his job - just for the entertainment.

I heard that he has been a good mayor, aside from the bizarre behavior. If he cut taxes and improves services I would vote for him.

Hollyweird has got to make a comedy about Ford. If they don’t they’re missing a great opportunity. That McCarthy woman could play Ford.

The mayor looks like he has been abusing pizza, cheeseburgers, Oreos, Cheetos, Twinkies, etc.

Switching to marijuana now will REALLY give him the munchies.

Sounds like a likely big D party candidate for POTUS to me.
He certainly seems to meet or exceed all the qualifications.

The pollsters have been working double-time since he came back on Monday because all of the other candidates are panicking. They still don't understand why he was elected, and everyone I know has said they'll vote for him (including some who didn't vote for him in 1010). His personal life is a train wreck, but he's been the best mayor this city has seen in more than 50 years. The minute he left for rehab, council started throwing money at all of their friends and if they keep it up then we're looking at a Ford landslide in October.

To all- please ping me to Canadian topics.

Canada Ping!

Any truth to the report that Ford predicted that the Blue Jays would win the World Series this year?

Not sure, but I think that’s an annual ritual for him. That and the Argos in the Grey Cup. He’s never been foolish enough to think the Leafs would get anywhere.
