    Sounds like he was addicted to opiates:

    It sounds all safe and cute when you read the words "Prescription drugs" in a news report. That prescription drug though is Oxycontin, aka hillbilly heroin, which is one step below heroin.

    Yeah he was an awesome actor. But who gives a f*ck. Disgusts me so many people are sad over this. We have soldiers die every day, and people are more concerned with some fat ass heroin junkie killing HIMSELF.

    He died because he shot up 50/50 heroin and fentanyl. Fentanyl being what they give cancer patients.. which is literally 100x more powerful than morphine.

    I'm not sad over this, I was more depressed about Chris Farley, and Phil Hartman, but PSH at least got to be in the big lebowski, So I can respect that.

    Fentanyl? Yikes! Did not see that.

    For those that do not know. Fentanyl comes in a slow release patch. Meant to slowly seep through your skin over many hours. Junkies will break it open and shoot it all at once. Scarey stuff.

    Can only hope his story helps at least one person. I've seen the effects of addiction first hand. Not sad for his death that's his own issue, but he does hurt people who cared about him. Hope the best for them is a horrible and helpless feeling going through that.

    Many more people meet the same fate who are just labled "junkies" no one cares about.
