German MP admits to crystal meth use
A German MP admitted on Wednesday that he took crystal meth.
His excuse? Michael Hartmann's lawyer said the Berlin lawmaker consumed the drug to improve his performance at work.
He remains a member of parliament but has since stepped as the party's parliamentary spokesperson for interior affairs.
Police searched his home in Berlin last week after observing him buying the drug.
They did not find any illicit substances but they are now investigating the case.
It should also be noted that Hartmann has previously spoken out against using cannabis.
Of course, Hartmann's not the only politician who has been caught taking drugs.
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford returned to the City Council this week after two months in rehab for drug and alcohol abuse.
