The real problem here is that trying to buy cocaine is a felony.

Obama has admitted to having done cocaine, which means he is equally guilty of "attempted possession of a controlled substance." But he just laughs about it, even though felons cannot legally be president.

Yeah, let's drag Chris Evans into this in case no one knows, or cares, who Scott Evans is.


As an addendum...Scott Evans is not related to Dynasty star Linda Evans...nor long dead wife to Roy Rogers, Dale Evans. Scott is also openly Gay...so passing on his cocaine-habit genes to any progeny isn't likely. Whew....

I haven't been able to watch a soap opera in a very long time so I don't know who he is, but you have to get your drugs somewhere. I guess he just shopped in the wrong store.
