Joe Biden’s Son Discharged From Navy For Cocaine Use
Hunter Biden, son of Vice President Joe, was discharged from the Navy earlier this year after failing a drug test for cocaine. Hunter Biden, a lawyer, was in a part-time position as an ensign in the Naval Reserves.
Biden actually came to the military incredibly late in life; he needed a waiver to be able to join the Navy because of his age (43) when he joined. He received a second waiver for an earlier drug-related incident; the Wall Street Journal reports these are relatively common. He was discharged in February of this year after his drug test came up positive.
To sum it up: Hunter Biden is now 44 years old and in June 2013 did enough cocaine to fail a drug screen. Hunter Biden parties harder than you did in college.
“I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge,” Hunter Biden said in a statement. “I respect the Navy’s decision. With the love and support of my family, I’m moving forward.”
Joe Biden, of course, created the drug czar’s office.
