"If there's any drugs in my system, any alcohol in my system. I have no problem doing that test."
Smiling, Black replied: "Rob, there's absolutely no need to do a urine test right now."
In addition to Ford’s recent crack-use admission, the mayor has also admitted to buying illegal drugs, drinking to excess and he has seen many of his powers taken from him in a city council vote.
Ford's at-times erratic behaviour has also made him the subject of regular ridicule on late-night U.S. talk shows.
The mayor has embarked on a blitz of selective television interviews since the scandal surrounding him caught fire last month.
