After months of denials, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford admitted today that he smoked crack cocaine and that it was “a problem.”

“Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine,” Ford said, according to video posted by CBC News. “Probably in one of my drunken stupors.”

Ford appeared in front of reporters at City Hall and asked them to repeat a question they had asked him six months ago, in May, when allegations first surfaced that Ford had been videotaped smoking crack.

Ford said repeatedly that he had made mistakes and apologized. He also said he didn’t recall there being a video recording and didn’t remember when exactly he did the drugs, noting that he’d been in a drunken state.
