Addiction is a powerful force. So it's not surprising, although still tragic, to note that a number of celebrities have become hooked on illicit substances, including methamphetamine. Famous meth addicts come in many forms. Some celebrity meth addicts are famous actors while other recognizable people addicted to meth are legendary musicians. Many of the most famous celebrity methheads have even been arrested on possession charges.
Who will you find on this list of famous people addicted to meth? Lindsay Lohan lands in the top spot. In 2011, the Mean Girls actress' father said that he suspected that she was smoking meth. "She’s smoking either crack or meth, one or the other. I’m not going to shade it," he said. Britney Spears has also been accused of being a meth addict. And not all infamous addicts are entertainers – according to a 47-page U.S. military report, Adolf Hitler was regularly prescribed a pill which contained crystal meth. He was also on barbiturate tranquilizers, morphine, and other drugs. Other famous meth addicts include John F. Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, and Robert Downey, Jr.
