Pharmaceutical grade drugs are powerful and more addictive than legal edibles.
They did say a plethora of drugs. He very well may have had THC in his system.

EDIT: But it was not mentioned.

I may have said this in another thread but it appears that US artists are able to hire their own doctor. Prince, Michael Jackson, etc. In my native UK, artists seem to be restricted to "street supply". Pharma grade drugs with a regular supply seem to be the killer. Street quality Heroin and Pharma grade Heroin (or derivatives/variants thereof) seem to be a huge difference in quality and quantity. Not that the street is better but opiates suck in whichever form.

A little toot or prick (injection of drugs) on the side compared to getting high on your own supply seems to be the major downer. Tom Petty was a stoner, before he ever started the nasty stuff, if his music is anything to go by.

I wonder, after invading a country that is basically the opiat capitol of the world like say Afghanistan how long it would take for the invaders country to have an "opiat crisis" ?


Im guess ing about 14 to 17 years.

Is this not obvious to the whole world?

Street level drugs are like a box of chocolates. You never know the dose or strength you're going to get. 4ml last week which gave the desired affect, may be mixed or far stronger than a user is used to.

Yes you can hire a private doctor to help you like Michael Jackson did. But in Michael Jackson's case, the doctor was giving Propofol (Diprivan). That's the drug that's pushed to knock you out for surgery. Anesthesiologist administer this drug. And you need a breathing machine with a heart monitor.

I'm sure Petty was in the care of a pain specialist. And that may soon come to light as I'm sure the family will seek damages.

It will still come in from cartels south of U.S. borders. And we have synthetic drugs too.
But in this case Petty appears to have pharmaceuticals. Because Fentanyl and Percocet (Oxycodone) are what commonly prescribed in Petty's case. And Alprazolam (Xanax) to calm your nerves.

My thoughts exactly. He's a product of the 60's and70's. But some doctor somewhere is about to get slammed like Michael Jackson's doctor.

Heroin was much bigger than pot in the 60's-70's.

Tom wasn't a stoner, he was a slammer. Probably partook in some MJ, but his drug of choice needed a needle. Nowadays you get the same high from a pill.

He was a legend, and his music will never be forgotten.

RIP Tom.

It's not your fault, man.
Just keep an eye on your friends and be honest with them if they appear to be going off the deep end.
That is all you can do.
Free will is what it is.

It's surprising to see him so full of opiates and not CBD or something akin.

Another sad tragedy.


Well, unlike CBD opiates actually do something.

Depends on the quantity of the meds being prescribed. It is not entirely unheard of to be on Fentanyl patchs for an extended long term pain controller, and be on a small amount of immediate release pain meds for "breakthrough pain".

Very sad indeed as im SMH in sorrow.

The Opioid crisis is very real here in the U.S..
Our Emergency services are running low on Narcan ( blocks receptors and stops the affect of narcotics)




In 2014, the CDC reported that the United States recorded the highest number of opioid overdose deaths in the nation’s history. This followed a steady increase during the previous decade and the numbers continue to rise, today.1

The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) calculates that there were 52,404 lethal drug overdoses in 2015 – with 20,101 related to prescription pain relievers and 12,990 related to heroin




laerdal.com...



I wanted to point out that Narcan has little effect on a Fentanyl overdose.
