Amy Poehler Details Her Experiences with Drugs Including Cocaine, Ecstasy, & Marijuana

Amy Poehler‘s new book “Yes Please” is coming out on October 28, and slowly, new passages from the novel are rolling in – including one involving past drug use.

“I tried cocaine, which I instantly loved but eventually hated. Cocaine is terrific if you want to hang out with people you don’t know very well and play Ping-Pong all night. It’s bad for almost everything else…The day after cocaine is rough,” the 43-year-old Parks and Recreation actress wrote (via Radar Online).

However, Ecstasy was not as enjoyable. “I remember a wonderful [United Citizens Brigade] New Year’s Eve party where we all danced and drank water and loved each other,” Amy wrote. “I also remember the next day when I thought I had no friends and I was so sad I wanted to sink into the carpet and permanently live there.”

Amy does admit to occasional marijuana use, but tries to lay off of it too much because of her sons Archie and Abel.

“The next day is the thing I can’t pull off anymore. How do you explain to a 4- and 6-year-old that you can’t play Rescue Bots because you have to spend all day in bed eating Cape Cod potato chips and watching The Bicycle Thief?” Amy humorously writes.

Read another passage from Amy‘s book where she opens up about her divorce from Will Arnett.

    I don’t need to hear about all that drug fueled garbage, and neither do your children. Grow up, stop being selfish and focus on being a good parent who doesn’t do drugs at all and doesn’t air her dirty laundry in public where her children can not only find out about it but be teased about it in school.

    Its Upright Citizens Brigade…not United…

    @Lamer: Get your head out of the 50s, please.

  • Honesty is Good

    Good for Amy- be honest- so few “stars” are, with all the money they spend on liars & spin doctors. Angelina Jolie was asked what makes a women sexy & she said, “honesty”. So true. Amy lying to her kids wouldn’t be a good idea- especially since she’s in the public eye- with any kid, it’s all how you tell them things AND share the consequences. I also like her taking Louis CK’s advice about divorce- no good marriage ends in divorce. No point on dwelling, denying, blaming and being nasty- even more important when you have kids.

    @Honesty is Good:

    Well said, I totally agree with you. I think people are to busy lying and trying to hide hide these things from children rather then have an honest conversation about it. It would actually be more benifical when/if later in life they come into contact with drugs.

  • Miss Nope

    There’s a difference between being honest with your children about your past drug use and writing a book. Good to be honest with your kids when the time comes. Not so good to come off as bragging about it in a book.

    I’m just guessing that alcohol has a million varieties, tobacco around 100,000 and pot has 20,000. Whereas hydroponic pot can be just as bad as harder drugs because of the chemicals added leading to psychotic episodes and mental disorders. I heard that Kronic (a sometimes legal pot replacement) is even more hazardous than pot itself.
