Although Demerol and other prescription painkillers were being accused as the drugs that killed Michael Jackson, TMZ has learned that Propofol may have been the drug that sent Jackson into cardiac arrest. In case you don’t know what Propofol is, it can only be administered by a medical professional intravenously and is normally used for…wait for it….surgical anesthesia. This drug was found in Jackson’s home. Holy shit.
We’re told the drug Propofol was discovered at the residence. The drug is used to put people under anesthesia before surgery. It is an extremely powerful drug that is only available to medical personnel. As one source said, “There is no conceivable way this drug can be properly prescribed for home use.” The drug can only be administered with an IV. Interestingly, Propofol burns and the drug Lidocaine is used to reduce the pain associated with the Propofol injection. As we first reported, Lidocaine was found near Jackson’s body. One of the major side-effects of Propofol is cardiac arrest if it’s taken in combination with narcotic painkillers, however, Propofol is so powerful it can stop someone’s heart on its own. A registered nurse has come out and said Jackson begged her for the drug Diprivan — the brand name for Propofol. She says he needed it for insomnia but she declined to supply it.
I think at this point, no matter how queer he acted or how many times he promised little boys go-kart rides if they pretended a banana was a lollipop, it’s pretty safe to assume that nobody reading this could hang with Michael Jackson when it came time to get fucked up. Jesus Christ. When you have a doctor’s office in your house just so you can get high, I’m not really sure what I’d be able to bring to the party. In a likely scenario, I would have died, been brought back to life, died again with my intestines in a bucket beside me, and Michael Jackson would be putting on his jacket and taking everybody’s Taco Bell order.
