Adjust font size:

Famous Taiwan TV host Hu Gua on Saturday admitted that he and his girlfriend, actress Ding Rouan, used drugs for a while. However, he denied the bhang the police found in their apartment belonged to them.

Police in Taipei on Friday searched the entertainer's apartment under another round of gambling and bribe charges, and investigators smelled the aroma of bhang in his bedroom. They finally found 30-gram of the drug inside the interlining of the ceiling.

They then detained Hu Gua, his girlfriend Ding Rouan, Hu Gua's daughter Hu Yingzhen and her boyfriend.
Hu Gua and his girlfriend admitted to a history of bhang drug use but insisted they had since quit. They said the drug found in their apartment belonged to a friend.

Hu Yingzhen and her boyfriend were released after inquest.

Police collected Hu Gua and his girlfriend's hair and urine for further testing and they were released on Saturday on police bail.

A police source says that if the test results are positive for bhang, the couple may be forced to undergo drug rehabilitation.

Late last year, a number of entertainers in Taiwan, including actress Hsiao Shushen, made headlines after being involved in drug use.
