Michael Douglas' son claims actor made him hand out joints at celeb parties

Michael Douglas used to get his young son Cameron to hand out joints to guests at lavish celebrity parties, according to Cameron’s new memoir.

Cameron’s book Long Way Home – which talks about his privilege, prison sentence and addictions – includes the many moments where his dad made him run around handing out drugs.

The 40-year-old wrote: ‘Even as a really young kid, I remember running joints back and forth.

‘Dad would say, “Hey, bring this over to your uncle” and I would, not realising until years later what it had been.

‘As I got older, I would creep from house to house on the compound, climbing balconies and seeing more than I was supposed to: beautiful grown-ups doing the things that beautiful grown-ups living lives of excess do.’

A few years later in 1999, he was arrested for cocaine possession and again in 2005 when cops found heroin and crack in his car.

Whether his exposure to lifestyles of the rich and famous had a correlation with his later drug use isn’t confirmed, but the memoir had him opening up about everything he went through when he was out of control.

In 2007, Cameron was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance after police pulled him over and found a syringe of liquid cocaine.

Not only was he arrested and charged multiple times, the son of the famous actor had points in his life when he dealt crystal meth.

He plead guilty to heroin possession and conspiracy to distribute drugs and spent seven years in prison.

Cameron’s father had also battled addictions over the years, but said prison was the last hope for Cameron’s survival.

Michael said: ‘My son has not been sober for this length of time since he was 13 years old.

‘He was going to be dead or somebody was gonna kill him. I think he has a chance to start a new life, and he knows that.’

Metro.co.uk have gone to reps of Michael Douglas for comment.
