    And Wife Laura Liked Dope, Says Book

    GEORGE W Bush snorted cocaine at Camp David, a new book

    His wife Laura also allegedly tried cannabis in her

    Author Kitty Kelley says in her biography The Family: The Real Story of the
    Bush Dynasty, that the US President first used coke at university in the

    Other acquaintances allege that as a 26-year-old National Guard, Bush
    "liked to sneak out back for a joint or into the bathroom for a line
    of cocaine".

    Bush has admitted being an alcoholic but, asked during the 1999

    "I've learned from my mistakes and should I be fortunate enough to
    become president I will bring dignity and honour to the office."

    Later an aide clarified his remarks saying Bush hadn't taken illegal
    drugs in the past 25 years.

    Kelley says that the Bush family covered up scandals because of their
    wealth and influence. She claims George W started drinking at school

    His supporters have slammed the allegations as outrageous.

    The White House said: "This book appears to be filled with the same
    trash discredited years ago."
