Cameron Douglas has been charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of a hypodermic needle. Charges were filed against 28-year-old Cameron Douglas and his friend, 30-year-old Christopher Lane.

At a pretrial hearing, charges of being under the influence of a controlled substance were added for Douglas, based on the testimony of a Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Deputy.

The charges stem from their arrest on July 22, when police found Douglas and Lane in a car near a Santa Barbara, Calif. motel -- and found a syringe on the floorboard with liquid cocaine in it. According to the arresting officer, Lane told him the syringe was his.

Both men will be back in court for an arraignment on November 16.

Cameron Douglas appeared with his father and grandfather, Kirk Douglas, in the 2003 film "It Runs in the Family."

Actually, according to AP articles, Douglas was not charged with possession of a needle. Lane was. Get the story straight.

Ding dang! No teeth! On drugs! Looks like a love match for Brit Brit!

I wonder if he buys his gas by the pint, like Brit Brit does?

Isn't it time we see her at a gas station today? Hmmmm.

If my father were Michael Douglas, I'd be on drugs, too. Idiot father = apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Kirks a chucklehead, too.

THERE SHOULD BE NO TOLERANCE FOR DRUGS AND ALCOHOL,,,,,,THESE PEOPLE SHOULD BE PUNISHED FOR THEIR BEHAVIOR,,,IN SPITE OF WHO THEIR PARENTS ARE , OR THEIR SO-CALLED STANDINGS IN LIFE......THE LAW IS THE LAW...OR IT SHOULD BE......
THESE PEOPLE PUT OTHER LAW ABIDING FOLKS IN HARM'S WAY,,,LOOK AT THE DRUNK DRIVING DEATHS,,,,LOOK AT THE CHILDREN FOR GOODNESS' SAKE...........THESE ARE SPOILED RICH BRATS WHO ARE OUT OF TOUCH WITH REALITY,,,,,,,

Eh. If it were anyone else, they would do federal time. He'll probably get community service.

Standards are badly needed.    

Michael Douglas was no innocent either back in the day. Hardly anyone was then, Lol. He was a lot of fun, and could be quite edgy and challenging.
No surprise his boy would push the envelope in the same fashion. Kids learn from their mistakes, and his boy will too. After all, there's the integrity of the Douglas name to protect.
He'll grow into it. Hopefully!

Candy - I agree that people need to take responsibility. And I am not defending anyone, but really, like KL said, it could have been the passenger's. And the cops did not do a drug test? If they suspected them onsite, perhaps they should have? What evidence do they have of under the influence? But yes, MD should pay more attention to his first child. Its absurd
