She would spend thousands of dollars a week buying drugs and stockpile it in the house so she wouldn’t run out. The house would be a mess, with trash and dirty clothes everywhere, but she didn’t want anyone to clean up, because she didn’t want people to see how bad everything was.

Cocaine was even in the budgets of movies, thinly disguised. It was petty cash, you know? It was supplied, basically, on movie sets because everyone was doing it.

Dennis Quaid on his “favorite mistake”: being addicted to cocaine.

Did Lance Armstrong Advocate Doping?

Stephen Swart, who rode with Armstrong in 1995 on the Motorola squad, told SI that Armstrong encouraged his teammates to use a banned blood booster called EPO.
