Toronto mayor says he is not a drug addict

TORONTO (AP) — Toronto Mayor Rob Ford dodged a direct question about whether he has ever used crack cocaine during a radio talk show appearance a day after he apologized for “a lot of stupid things” and acknowledged the need to curb his drinking.

When asked by the host of The John Oakley Show on Monday if he has ever used crack, Ford responded by saying only that he was not a drug addict or an alcoholic.

Ford was interviewed on the John Oakley addressing the media storm that broke after police revealed that they had obtained a copy of a video that appears to show the mayor puffing on a crack cocaine pipe.
