10 Famous People Ruined By Drugs

10 WEIRDEST Drugs Kids Are Doing These Days https://youtu.be/2Wbq6u_xuNY

Description:
Drugs and superstardom seem to go hand in hand. In Hollywood, drugs are easily accessible to celebrities, and many A-list parties center around all-night drug binges and an unlimited supply of alcohol. While many celebs are able to keep their drug use under wraps, others haven’t been so lucky. As fans, we have seen many stars’ lives ruined by their drug habits. Some are able to kick their addictions, but others haven’t been as lucky.

Rocker Pete Doherty’s music career has taken a backseat to his highly-publicized drug addiction. The Libertine’s frontman has been arrested for various drug offenses, including driving under the influence, and possession of crack cocaine, heroin, cannabis and ketamine. The singer completed his last rehab stint in 2015, but his addiction has clearly taken a toll on his life and his appearance. His gaunt frame and severely yellowed teeth should serve as a reminder that drug addiction has harrowing effects on the human body.

Repeated and unsuccessful drug rehab stints seem to be a common theme for many celebrities who just can’t kick their drug habits. Whitney Houston reportedly entered rehab following the airing of her reality show Being Bobby Brown. The singer was never able to kick her habit, and her unusual and drugged-out appearance was the main topic in gossip magazines. During an interview with Diane Sawyer, Whitney admitted drugs were an issue for her in the past, but she had moved on from her addiction. But when she was found dead in a hotel bathtub, the truth was revealed. Cocaine was found in her system, and drug paraphernalia was strewn across her hotel room. Sadly for fans of the singer, her life and career is still tarnished by her drug use and untimely death.

Heath Ledger also had an unsuccessful rehab stint prior to his death. The actor wanted to kick his drug habit prior to filming The Dark Knight, but his attempt was unsuccessful. He was found dead in his Manhattan apartment, and the coroner found a lethal mix of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam and doxylamine in his system. Fans were shocked to hear that drugs were the cause of his death.

Although drugs have been the reason behind many celebrity deaths, many stars get a new lease on life. NBA player Lamar Odom was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel back in October 2015, but medical personnel were able to bring him back to life. He was sent to a Los Angeles hospital where he underwent therapy to help restore his memory and to help him kick his habit. But Lamar’s addiction has other plans for him. It has since been reported that he is back on crack, and his ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian, has left him once and for all.

When our favorite stars battle with drug addiction, we have no choice but to sit back and watch as they spiral out of control. This list of 10 celebrities who have been ruined by drugs is a testament to the amount of damage drugs can do to one’s life and career.

In Colombia, the heirs to Pablo Escobar’s drug empire are conducting business as usual — though with a somewhat lower profile. Today’s Medellin drug cartels are highly structured and run much like multinational corporations. But violent gangs operating in the city’s slums provide the muscle; known as combos, they’ve carved Medellin into fiefdoms, imposing invisible borders between gang territory — borders that, when ignored, often get people killed.

VICE News travelled to Medellin to meet gang members — along with top cartel leaders and assassins — who revealed the inner workings of the city’s modern-day cocaine industry.
