Reports are already spinning that the Colombian Police have stated they suspect it was drug related.Just saw this. My wife is devastated. Really hope it wasn't a relapse.
Warnings? How about almost dying in 2001 and was in a two week coma, from an overdose? That should have been a big warning.I think we should celebrate them as a musician, but every time I see a musician or actor die of drugs, I think they need to have Kurtwood Smith pop up and yell "DUMB*SS!!!!!". It's not like they don't have a warning with the mile long list of celebrities that have died from drugs.
People don't get hooked on hard drugs like heroin for funzies. Mushrooms, LSD, marijuana... those are recreational drugs. The people who do drugs like heroin are trying to numb pain, trying to feel something other than miserable. There's debilitating mental illnesses behind addiction like that.I have a lot of sympathy for someone who, through absolutely no fault of their own, gets addicted to medication they were prescribed, like a lot of pain killers. Someone who searches it out for recreational use I only have sympathy for their family. Those are the people who really suffer.
