TORONTO (AP) - Toronto Mayor Rob Ford says he no longer uses illegal drugs, goes to the gym every day and doesn’t drink as much as he used to.
The interview comes a month after a video surfaced showing Ford inebriated at a restaurant, rambling in a Jamaican accent and using profanity.
The mayor admitted he had been drinking that night, saying, “maybe you’re perfect, but I’m not.”
Ford is running for re-election this year, despite admitting last fall to smoking crack cocaine while in office.
He told Lauer that he was only experimenting with illegal drugs.
