Cocaine Killed Whitney Houston

Posted by on Thu, Mar 22, 2012 at 3:59 PM

Now we know:

Whitney Houston died from an accidental drowning in a hotel bathtub, but the "effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use" were contributing factors in her death, the Los Angeles County Coroner said in an initial autopsy report released Thursday.
Houston, 48, was "found submerged in bathtub filled with water" and "no trauma or foul play is suspected," the coroner said.
The toxicology tests found other drugs in her body, including marijuana, the anti-anxiety drug Xanax, the muscle relaxant Flexeril and the allergy medicine Benadryl, the report said. But these drugs "did not contribute to the death," it said.
Whitney, you are now free to go. We have all the answers. No need to haunt us. You did your time on earth. Rest in peace.

I disagree.

Your headline is offensive, scientifically, and journalistically.
