I'm surprised by what substance killed him but that's about it. The doctor did note the presence of significant heart disease.

Well....I seriously doubt that he would have died from a morphine overdose on purpose.

I hope that was a joke. Pills of all kinds, but especially downers are the fastest growing cause of overdoses. You can OD on any drug (except herb) and combining them only increases the risk.

He definitely wasn't taking pills....Fentanyl is an end of life cancer drugs they only give to cancer patients who are in the last few days of death......but of course most chemicals ingested in too much quantity will kill you.

I had thought this year's string of musician deaths were due to the new heroin import which was much stronger than previous batches. I can't remember the exact name but I read an article that OD's were up in number largely because of some new form of heroin that had been imported to the states which was much, much stronger. People taking their old doses were OD'ing on the reg due to the unexpected potency.

Even water. You can OD on anything if you take in too much. Other than love, of course.

Be careful your man card is in danger, that comment was way to soft and fuzzy for an MMA Site!

actually, fentanyl comes in patches like smoking patch and are used for pain management. A friend of mine with crohns tried them instead of oxys for a while but didnt like them. very easyto kill yourself with them becuase opiate addicts tend to want more so u dont think patch is doing enough and you take more pills and you accidentally dont wake up in the morning.
Its the drug industries dark litte secret, accidental opiate overdoses is killing tens of thousands of people.
I heard some addicts were taking used fentanyl patches from garbages, cutting them open and scraping goo inside to cook and inject....
