What drugs did Cosby allegedly use?

Famed 70s supermodel Beverly Johnson is the latest of at least 23 women making accusations against comedian Bill Cosby.

Johnson told CNN about a meeting she had with Cosby at his home in the 1980s when Cosby was starring on "The Cosby Show." She says she was offered an audition for a small role on the hit program.

The supermodel claims she was working through acting exercises - including one in which she acted drunk - in front of the comedian when he asked her to have a drink from his espresso machine.

Famed Model Beverly Johnson claims Bill Cosby drugged her

"He was very insistent that I try this cappuccino that would be the best coffee that I would ever have. So I relented and he gave me the cappuccino. I took one sip and I felt something very strange," Johnson said. "After that second sip, I knew I had been drugged. It was very powerful. It came on very quickly."

"I knew by the second sip of the drink Cosby had given me that I'd been drugged - and drugged good," she writes in Vanity Fair.

Johnson is not charging Cosby with sexual assault, but her story about a drugged drink mirrors the stories of many of the other accusers.
