Rob Ford Does Not Get His Drugs for Free

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford reacts to a video released of him by local media at City Hall in Toronto, November 7, 2013. Ford admitted on Tuesday he has smoked crack cocaine, probably "in one of my drunken stupors," but insisted he is not an addict and said he would stay in office and run for re-election next year.

Despite being the mayor of Toronto, the largest city in Canada, and considering suspected drug dealers longtime friends, Rob Ford pays for product. Asked this morning in front of the city council if he'd "purchased illegal drugs in the last two years," Ford paused dramatically. He looked skyward, his thinning blond hair spiked toward heaven. He looked down, frowned. The world held its collective breath ...

"Yes, I have," he said.
