List of politicians busted for drugs. Although we always seem to hear a new story on the nightly news about the latest political drug scandal, there are surprisingly few politicians who have actually been arrested and charged for drug crimes. There is so much red tape surrounding the lives of politicians that law enforcement has to take special precautions to make sure everything in the investigation is above board. Since politicians have so many connections, it’s very rare that even if a politician is caught with drugs that there’s an arrest. That’s what makes it all the more incredible when a politician is busted for drugs.

 

Which politicians have been busted for drugs? The government employees and political elected officials on this list broke the very laws there are supposed to enforce and follow by using or selling drugs. Some of the cases on this list exploded into large political scandals, like in the case of Trey Radel and Marion Barry. However, some of the cases are far less known,either because they were international incidents or because the politician was small potatoes.

 

Whatever the cause of the drug bust, these politicians ruined their bright political futures due to a severe lapse in judgement.
