Former AFL major Mark & ​​# 39; Bomber & # 39; Thompson admits that he has used drugs, but insists that he has not sold them.

The 55-year-old said Wednesday that he used ice in the second half of 2017, adding that he was also tempted to try LSD but didn't have the guts to do it.

Thompson is in the Magistrates Court in Melbourne, where he fights three drug trafficking charges and four of possession after a raid on his property in Port Melbourne.

& # 39; Ice, that's it really & # 39 ;, he said when asked about his drug use.

The former Essendon captain and coach said it had become a habit.

& # 39; I smoked too much, & # 39; he said.

& # 39; It was a difficult time. I left the industry where I worked in a bad way. & # 39;

Thompson linked his fight to the Essendon supplement scandal, which turned the club and the competition upside down.

Police claim that in January last year a lock case with MDA, ice, Xanax and an LSD tablet was found in Thompson's house, including equipment, including scales.

He admitted that he had the scales and used them to make sure he got the amount of medication he had paid for.

& # 39; I've always made things worse & # 39 ;, he said.

& # 39; What you paid for is what you have. & # 39;

& # 39; I can't believe I'm saying this. & # 39;

Thompson also admitted that he was considering taking LSD.
