Marion Barry - Crack User and Washington, D.C. Mayor

Remember the good old days. When a mayor could be caught smoking crack on video, go to jail, and then get reelected. Well, maybe you can't.

Such was the case with this former mayor of Washington, D.C. who had quite the crack smokin habit. After federal agents set up a sting operation, the mayor was caught on tape lighting up his crack pipe.

So, was this the end of his political career. Hell no! After serving a prison sentence, Barry ran for reelection and WON!

Yes, this is all true. As they say, or maybe like Don King likes to say, "Only in America".

Way to go Washington D.C.
