The excessive use of drugs is typical of anyone with low self esteem and often with too much money, although not religated to only the rich. Anyone who uses drugs, other than for medical reasons prescribed by a physician, is an idiot. These actors feel they are beyond the law and, unfortunately, this is supported by the less than correct court decisions in most of these cases. He will probably just get off with a fine and he will continue on his spiral to self destruction and annonymity. Unless he is fired from his CSI role immediately, I for one will boycott the series. He has no place in the media where young people may look to him as a role model. Unless the entertainment media begin to take a stand, this kind of behavior will continue.

I'm very saddened by this. No wonder he played his character, also addicted to drugs, so well. Maybe he will get his life clean and keep it that way...for himself.

He is a great (and handsome) actor, and I hope this serves as a wake up call for him. The combination of Heroin and Cocaine (and the prescription drugs to come down) is the most lethal combination possible! It is also the most addictive. Unfortunately he has the money to keep himself high, and probably will for years to come with the Royalties from CSI... I can't imagine where the ecstacy fit in there, but I guess when you got that kind of money anything goes!!! The hardest drugs must be a fairly new thing, since anyone who has ever known a 'speedballer' will tell you that if they have the goods they will be in and out of the bathroom every few MINUTES!!! But they will also tell you that people with that kind of problem won't wait to get home before they get high if they've just copped. That is probably why he was in a "gay" area of town, cuz those are also where the dope usually is!

Yikes, this is so sad. Some weed wouldn't really have surprised me, but coke, heroin and ecstasy? Sounds like it's a really serious problem. Dude, you're 41...time to grow up!

I really hope he gets help, he's so talented and I love his CSI character. Kinda ironic that his Warrick Brown character was a gambling addict.

You people need to leave him alone. It's not easy to quit drugs like you think it is. Don't be jealous cause you can't afford to do everything he did!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! if you guys really cared about him or his character it wouldnt matter what he did now you would just give him support he needs to quit.

WHAT A FOOL. OF COURSE HE WILL BLAME BEING BLACK ON THIS PROBLEM. THAT IS ALWAYS A GOOD EXCUSE AND AS LONG AS HE IS ALIVE HE CAN USE IT FOREVER. WHAT A DUMB ASS. I HOPE CSI IS DOWN THE TUBES FOR GOOD. THANK GOD THEY GOT RID OF THE WORST ACTRESS 'SARA' THAT EVER LIVED, I THOUGHT THAT WOULD HELP. WE DO NOT NEED ANYMORE DRUGGIES IN HOLLYWOOD OR ON TV OR MOVIES. HOLLYWOOD PRODUCES NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF LOSERS. NO TALENT ONES AT THAT. I HOPE HE ENDS UP LIKE GARY COLEMAN. JUST ANOTHER LOSER. LOSER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!,

Ok, so you know if it was any other star on CSI, they wouldn't have pulled the contract. But for whatever reason (take that however you want to), Gary Dourdan's was pulled. He's not the first star to be caught in possession. Why didn't they just put him in rehab and place him on suspension for the duration? It's not unheard of. One can only wonder why they DIDN'T do that...

I am really shocked. He was a great actor. To bad he picked drugs over a great career. Too bad, so sad. You should have got high on LIFE NOT DRUGS. Drugs and alcohol ruin everything you love and you can never really get any of that back.

A lot of folk with cash for some reason over due the liquor and extend to drugs. I say find a hobby, help the poor, do anything with your extras that can help somebody and it will not destroy you or your reputation in the process. Too many people are addicts and so little of us are helping someone else. They are killing themselves slowly and some of them leave us too soon. All that talent gone to waste. Blessed and don't even know it. Get help-help someone esle-help cames right back at ya. peace!

He is going to need his crime lab partners to prove he had nothing to do with it.

I cant believe that his bail was only $5,000. normal bail is 10% of your bond so that means his bond was $50,000
i guess being a star has its advantages because getting a $50,000 bond for possession of herion,cocaine,extasy,and
other perscription when eachone is a different charge. That is unheard of!!
