In a Wednesday interview conducted by CBC and CB24, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford opened up about his drug use while in office.

NBC reported that Ford said he was “under the influence of alcohol while at work.” Don’t worry though, as Ford only used drugs “on personal time.”

His substance abuse was not limited to crack and alcohol, as the AP reported Ford also said he’s done “every drug you can probably think of.”

This interview comes two days after Rob Ford was released from rehab. He has been embroiled in controversy ever since photos were released in April of him smoking crack.

Unlike fellow crack smoking mayor Marion Berry, Ford has been rather upfront about his drug usage, admitting in his interview that he is smoking crack in those photos.

Ford though has been criticized of not being upfront when it comes to other issues. Those issues include allegations of corruption, the criminal nature of his drug usage, and whether he will submit to drug testing.
