CROWNING GLORY: A Double Bay man is using far-fetched and insensitive excuses to help justify his drug use.

While out partying last night, Max Selby had already consumed 5 lines in 20 minutes when he delicately rolled up a $5 and yelled; “..this one is for Her Majesty.”

“Normally I only use $50 or $100 notes to snort,” he told a DBT reporter today.

“But last night I wanted to pay my respects to the Queen, whose face is printed on the $5.”

Friends of the 34 year old say he’s completely kidding himself.

“He’s never cared about the Royal family before,” they claim.

It’s understood Max Selby got no sleep last night and he plans to stay awake for a friend’s wedding today and then to watch his beloved South Sydney play in the semi’s tonight.

“I’ll be fine,” he says. “I’ve got plenty of gear and my trusty $5 note to get me through.”
