          ‘What Do You Do When You’re An Addict? You Go Snort The Dog’


          October 17, 2018

          Academy Award-nominated actor Gary Busey says he used to be addicted to cocaine. He says that once when he’d accidentally dropped two packets of the powdered drug on the floor, “My dog, Chili, started rolling. The bindles (hand-folded envelopes) of the cocaine got all over her, so, what do you do when you’re an addict? You go snort the dog.”

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Know someone with outrageous behavior?

          “Cocaine was my everything,” continues the star, adding, “My family, my career and everything in my life ran a distant second.”
