Cameron Douglas is charged with possessing items that tested positive for cocaine and heroin, which were found in his prison cell by an investigator.

He also tested positive for methadone, often something that people take when they're coming off a heroin addiction in order to facilitate withdrawal.

In court Thursday, he admitted struggling with addictions to heroin, cocaine and alcohol. "God knows I am sorry," records show he told the judge.

Michael Douglas said in a statement:

"Cameron accepts full responsibility for his conduct, which involved a small user-quantity of drugs. While he has made much progress, he is still not cured."

"Most people and their families are able to address this illness privately and outside of the spotlight. Unfortunately this has not been possible in his case, for reasons completely outside of his control."

"He thanks those that have rooted for his recovery and looks forward to the day when he will not disappoint."

Douglas is scheduled to be sentenced December 21.

Gee Whiz, I guess he didn't pay the guards off like a good heroin addict in prison.

It dawned on me the other day, that we are allowed to smoke ourselves to death, drink ourselves to death, over eat which causes all sorts of health issues which lead to death. Carry handguns (which I am for) that lead to death but one cannot get high cause why? This so called war on drugs is such BS, especially since they are rampant within the very system itself; jail. The war on drugs is a huge failure. If people want to get high & yes, kill themselves, they should have the same right as every other person who choses any of the guilty pleasure listed above

P.S.
The drugs found in Cameron's jail cell did Not magically appear there. With him already being in prison, there was a source that supplied these drugs to him!!

With all the joys and (sometime) heartache of being a parent, Michael Douglas has Not tried to hide his son's addictions. He has been very outspoken regarding Cameron's troubles in recent years. I can easily admire a parent who recognizes the troubles that their adult children are facing without feeling the Need to make excuses for them. Hopefully, Cameron will find a reason to recognize that there are people in his life who (still) love and deeply care about him,and only want the best results in facing his addictions. PEACE!!
