President Biden was at Camp David at the time the substance was found. His son, Hunter, who is a recovered crack cocaine addict, was also at Camp David during this time.

However, the investigation into who brought the drug into the White House is still ongoing. The cocaine was discovered in an area of the West Wing used by both guests and staff.

A hazmat team was called in response to the substance’s discovery in the 18th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue area. The Secret Service blocked roads surrounding the White House.
