Toronto's boorish, probably crack-smoking, definitely party-loving Mayor Rob Ford has carefully denied he's a crack-smoker, saying he doesn't do it and dodging questions about past use or the alleged video of him doing so. But he's not nearly so guarded about his weed use: "Oh yeah, I won't deny that. I've smoked a lot of it," he said with a laugh on his way out of a luncheon, according to Reuters. So maybe the way to coax a crack-smoking admission is to just hit him up after a big meal?
