Joe Biden’s Son Discharged From Navy For Cocaine Use

Hunter Biden joined the Naval Reserves at 43 and failed a drug test for cocaine in June 2013. He was discharged in February of this year.

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.
