    Artie is now claiming he made up the story about buying heroin in Delaware -

    “People made such a big deal of me getting it in Delaware, but I just picked a place,” he told Delaware Online.

    http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/...-story-I-never-bought-heroin-in-Delaware.html

    "Since around 2008, comedian Artie Lange has maintained that he regularly bought heroin from a dealer in Wilmington, Delaware, for a four-month period in 2005.

    But, as it turns out, that story is simply not true. Artie did buy heroin back then — just not in the First State.

    Lange today recounted his oft-told tale of his time engaged in Wilmington’s heroin trade, revealing to Delaware Online that he had never done so “in my life.”

    “I’ll give you an exclusive,” Lange told The News Journal’s Ryan Cormier today. “I never bought heroin in Delaware in my life. I was afraid to say where I really got it. I was dealing with some dangerous people.” ...

    Lange also reiterated that he first met his heroin dealer at a 2004 show at Wilmington’s long-defunct Kahunaville but clarified that that person was not a resident of the state. Now, though, Lange has no contact with him.

    “Thank God I haven’t talked to him in a long time,” he said.

    Despite Lange long having lied about purchasing drugs in Wilmington, though, he maintains that many of the elements present in those stories were true — including doing “a few lines before driving home” after he obtained the drug."

    He said on his podcast today: "Howard taught me to have an opinion on everything. Just have an opinion. It doesn't have to be the truth." I thought that summed up Artie pretty good in a nutshell. But he's at over 300,000 followers on Twitter so he's definitely on a high horse (pun intended)

    Also if he cops up to enough lies, shouldn't his book(s) be moved to the fiction section?

    Artie-San has learned much from the Master.
    Lying about lying is a skill that must be honed to perfection grasshopper.

    who even cares where he was buying dope. i know i heard a cop say he busts a lot of ppl from mastic beach who come all the way to brooklyn to buy like 3 bags of dope , i can imagine driving from hoboken to willmington its not THAT much further. but the other hand you can easily cop in newark and if you're gonna drive to wilmington you may as well go to camden a friend said camden is the best place to cop

    Oh, and he didn't drink a bottle of bleach and stab himself in the stomach seven times. He drank a bottle of ammonia and stabbed himself six times.

    I was at the concert where he was kicking potted poinsettias into the audience. That much he can not lie about. (some folks were not too happy about that)

    I've always found junkies to very honest and forthcoming about their illegal drug habits.

    As much as I liked Artie on the show, there's no doubt he's a liar. Some of the lies were to hide his drug use, others were just meant to get a laugh. In particular I remember the story about the foreign kid he sent money to after seeing one of those Sally Struthers TV ads about starving children. He originally said the kid showed up one day and asked him to buy weed for him. When Howard brought it up later Artie admitted he made that part of the story up and never really met the kid, he just donated money. I'm not even sure that part was true.

    He lives 15 minutes from the heroin capital of the world.

    People believed that he went to Delaware?
