Rapper found to have nearly a dozen drugs in his body
Underscoring the dangers of mixing Xanax with opioids, the medical examiner has ruled that a combination of fentanyl and Alprazolam (the generic form of Xanax) is what led to Lil Peeps death in November while on tour.
In addition to that deadly combination, the 21 year old also tested positive for marijuana, cocaine, Tramadol and a checkerboard of opiates including Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone (Dilaudid), Oxycodone and Oxymorphone.
The rapper was scheduled to perform in Tuscon that evening, but was found unresponsive on his tour bus before the concert was to have started.
In his last video posted on social media the afternoon before he died, Lil Peep was seen taking all kinds of different pills, and already very high.
Police investigated some Twitter activity surrounding Lil Peep’s death. According to law enforcement sources, investigators were interested in a series of Twitter DMs sent from a woman named Mariah Bons, who was believed to have gone to Peep’s tour bus not too long before he died.
She allegedly sent a message to a friend that said, “GBC [Lil Peep] high af because of me and my friend lol.” Bons also allegedly wrote in another message, “He passed the f**k out my brother called and I tried to get him to say hi to my brother but he wouldn’t wake up…”
Famous Faces in Recovery
Substance abuse disorder is prevalent throughout all groups in modern society; celebrities just have a light shining on them. Recently, Ben Affleck’s struggles with alcoholism after rehab have illuminated the importance of asking for help – even after relapse. Other famous celebrities have been entangled with alcoholism and drug abuse, including Lamar Odom’s struggles, Robert Downey Jr.’s addiction in the early 2000s, and Heather Locklear’s rehab visits. Many celebrities were lost in 2018; but there is a growing number of celebrities in recovery, who have turned their lives around and are now leading a more fulfilling path.
Stop the Cycle of Addiction
While celebrities do suffer a high incidence of substance abuse occurrence, it’s important to understand the universality of their vices. Many people have a loved one who was lost due to addiction, and that’s why it’s so important to make the call to get help. If you or someone you love is going down a dangerous path, don’t wait any longer to ask for help. In today’s environment, you never know when a person’s next dose may be their last.
