Recently, we read the following:

Los Angeles Times: "DEA looking for evidence of illegal drug activity in Michael Jackson’s death" by Josh Meyer

“The Los Angeles Police Department’s request for federal drug agents to join the investigation of Michael Jackson's death indicates that illegal activity may be suspected in the dispensing of painkillers, sedatives, antidepressants and other medications to the 50-year-old entertainer, according to a law enforcement official.

“Some of Jackson’s friends, family and confidants have come forward to say that he was abusing painkillers and other prescription drugs over a long period of time, and that perhaps others in his ever-changing entourage kept him supplied, which could be illegal. The Drug Enforcement Agency is investigating various possibly related activities, said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing....

" ‘The problem is growing; prescription drug abuse... shady doctors, diversion [of drugs] from overseas, pill mills, online pharmacies, forgery, pharmaceutical theft, multiple prescriptions from doctors to separate pharmacies,’ the official said. ‘Doctors are not the biggest problems, the Internet is No. 1,’ in which people get prescription drugs from fly-by-night companies that operate under, or outside of, the DEA’s radar. “


And we thought:

… Fireworks in the park on the 4th of July. Fireworks in a junkie’s head – on demand….
