When is the last time you saw someone use crack who is worth 10 Billion Dollars? I'm guessing Bill Gates and Warren Buffett don't own a crack pipe. It's just a guess, but I am going out on a limb and saying they probably don't. Until a few minutes ago, I would have said it is 100% certain they don't. Then I read about this couple.
Eva Rausing is married to the third richest person in the UK. She is American born and the daughter of a big shot at Pepsi. The couple is worth over 10 Billion Dollars and yet she was arrested yesterday trying to allegedly bring heroin and crack into the US Embassy in London. Nice huh? Turns out she can't go longer than a few hours without either drug and so always keeps them with her.
Her husband Hans was also arrested by police when they searched their home for more drugs.
The couple gives millions and millions each year to charity and Hans has Prince Charles on speed dial and gets to even call him Chuck. There are so many charities in the UK that would have gone out of business if it were not for this couple so what do you do? Do you just say, "oh well, let them do what they want," and risk having people say your organization supports crack heads or do you shun them in which case you shut down and crack heads who don't have ten billion end up without any help at all.
Do you know how addicted you must be to actually try and bring drugs like heroin and crack into an Embassy? Did she think they wouldn't find it? With the kind of money they have, I wonder if they just have a farm in Colombia that grows the coca and poppies for them. Then they sit around the house smoking and injecting and saying things like, "this is a really good vintage."
