ya know, the little label on the pill bottle says DO NOT drink alcohol with this prescription. If you are stupid enough to ignore that warning, then ya just have to live or die with your choice. Just proves some people need nannies even at advanced age to control their self destructive habits. Yes, it's sad, but predictable.

14,000 people died from prescription overdoses in 2010 and that number is on the rise. They weren't famous nor does that even matter.

Even the Surgeon General said that prescription drugs are the greatest killer of Americans, hands down. Oh, yeah, and 99.9% of them are not famous so your little rant about pop/rock stars is just petty. This affects all Americans.

Illegal drugs like pot and cocaine aren't the problem; legal drugs are. If we were better educated in America, we could probably come up with a solution but we are so dumbed down (like you) that no one has a solution. Pathetic.

3 New Dangerous Drug Habits in Teens..have been getting popular..these rock stars ,and Rap thugs life style of drugs filters down to their admirers.
no longer are expensive drugs required..The young ,ever resourceful, in THUGGERY come up with ways to harm themselves,their family's and society.

Simple experimentation leads to heavy drug taking,crime,and death!

Energy drinks in elementary school

In recent years, drinks that combine alcohol with caffeine, such as Four Loko, have been blamed for the deaths of teens and college students. But a new epidemic involves younger children: elementary school students are drinking highly caffeinated energy drinks to catch a buzz. Even without alcohol, these drinks are dangerous to kids' health.

Huffing Dust-Off

Huffing, or inhaling household products, is not a new phenomenon. But experts have started to see an increase in teens huffing the computer cleaner called Dust-Off, a trend that started a few years ago.

Dust-Off, sold at office supply stores, can be inhaled to produce a high lasting a few seconds to a few minutes.

"One of the attractions is that it can be felt almost immediately," said Harvey Weiss, executive director of the National Inhalant Prevention Coalition. "You don't have to wait for something to happen."

Inhalants can cause nausea, nosebleeds, impaired coordination and, in some cases, death.

Pharm parties

At age 14, Brittany Gaydosh, walked into a New Year's Eve party at a friend's house, drank a couple of shots of Bacardi 151 rum, and made her way to a Ziploc bag filled with pills.

"There were Ecstasy, Xanax, Percocets, Valium and other pills in the bag that night," Gaydosh said. "I took four Ecstasy pills and a Xanax."

Throughout her teenage years, Gaydosh attended at least 20 parties like this, the now 23-year-old said. She would take handfuls of pills, wash some down with alcohol, and save the rest for later. And she's not alone. According to experts, such parties, known as "Skittles parties" (because of the brightly colored pills) or "pharm parties," have rapidly gained popularity among teens.

"At a lot of the parties, they just throw the pills on the table," Gaydosh said. "It's like candy that you can take home with you."

Unless yer a DRUGGIE like XOXOXO,those with kids should be vigil with their kids behavour1...Of course BOOZE has and still is KILLING PEOPLE....

Those who KILL themselves with this life style are SHITS!...and to be shunned!..They Harm the kids!...no Positive examples with them..just Pot head Scum!..now Maggot shit!

I'm sick of hearing about this crackhead! No great loss! She was only a mere pop singer. Hopefully the funeral will put an end to the media frenzy over this mediocrity!

What REALLY killed Whitney Houston WAS "Political Correctness". That is right!!!

Whitney Houstan had UNIVERSAL APPEAL and her singing talent was matchless. But, of course, to the "politically correct" knucleheads she was not black enough, or a sell out or too white. It is the same BS that they pull on any successful black individual who does not follow the Uncle Tom Plantation mythology symbolized by the likes of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

As a result, to get Street Credibility, she marries "bad boy" Bobby Brown----a match made in PC HELL, the drugs and the booze started and the rest is history.

It was said at Whitney Houston's funeral service that the family decided to take the world to church by allowing cameras inside the service.

I'm glad they did. The parts I saw were both moving and inspiring. The music by artists like R Kelly, Be Be & Ce Ce Wayans, and Stevie Wonder was tremendous. It spoke to the best of the hope and optimism offered by Christian faith.

Ms Houston was a woman of faith, a sinner saved by God's grace, same as any other believer...

One can only speculate here about Osama bin Laden's obsession with Whitney!!

http://en-maktoob.news.yahoo.com/osama-bin-la...

"London, Feb 16 (ANI): Osama bin Laden lusted after Whitney Houston, dreamed of marrying her and at one point even plotted to murder her husband Bobby Brown, a new book has claimed."

"The incredible account of the terrorist's infatuation with the late singer comes from Sudanese author Kola Boof, who it is widely accepted lived with him as his mistress."
----------

Well, I'm certainly not a fan of Bobby Brown; but if Osama was willing to face Bobby Brown on the Street, mano a mano, my money is on Brown taking Osama down to Chinatown.

A Circus,like all these Filthy rich drug invested Creatures of the Street do...On their way to becoming Maggot shit...pomp's,arrogant no class displays of the overnight Nuvo rich...its Obscene

In a way ,it reminded me of that FORVER North Korean Funeral.of Kim Jong .with all of its staged rhetoric,and feigned emotions...it was the place to be in that world..with the Visions of MONEY all around around in the thousands of Clones there....One could see the players jocking for the MONEY!..ITS THE MONEY STUPID!..Always was ,and it always will be!
A Public Spectacle,a Show,A demonstration of Mans worse character.

Compare this to the quit,dignity ,of many of American heros....Who when interned,are not subjected to this HALF TIME SUPER BOWEL SHOW..

.May she rest in peace now..this after all the senseless noise...her self inflicted killing of her self may be forgiven...The Lord Does not Condone Suicide,The lord celebrates LIFE..not DEATH! Taking her self from her child.,denying her child a mother,...thats the Sad part!

Of course LOONS like POOP POOP,Shallow,without character,a check out publication freak,.just slop's this up..she gets a vicarious thrill to spice up her miserable life,with this crap...Sicko's!

Its the same LOONS who would desecrate a returning dead veteran!
