Howard Dean, the former Vermont governor and onetime Democratic National Committee chairman, offered a qualified apology Friday morning for his repeated insinuations this week that GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump might be a cocaine user.
“I would be very willing to apologize, not to Donald Trump, but I don’t think using innuendo is a good thing,” Dean said in an appearance on MSNBC.
Dean, who is a physician by profession, ignited controversy Monday night when he made remarks about Trump during the first presidential debate. Dean speculated on Twitter that Trump’s sniffling during the debate was the result of a cocaine habit.
Signs and Symptoms of Cocaine Use
Do you think you see signs of drug use but you are not sure what drug is being used or how bad it is? If you suspect cocaine abuse by someone you care about, here are the signs of cocaine use you should watch for.
If a person is abusing powdered cocaine and they don’t want you to know, they may disappear to use the drug and then return in a very different mood. They may seem excited and act more confident and exhibit a greater sense of well-being. They may be more excited sexually and talkative. Their energy will be pumped up and they probably will not have very much appetite for food and will not have a normal sleep pattern.
