  • Talking about Whitney Houston’s recent death, which has been officially ruled a drowning, Elton John said, “I could have easily ended up like Whitney Houston. It’s a miracle I didn’t. Because I’m sure I did as much cocaine as she ever did.” Why do celebrities always chime in with this It could have been me! thing after a death? I’m thinking of Lily Allen and Amy Winehouse here. It seems a little tasteless to attract attention to yourself and the fact that you were lucky enough not to die. But, hey, he’s Elton John, so I’ll give him a pass. [Because he's Elton John, I will not give him a pass. -- Editor]  [E! Online]

  • Whitney Houston’s official cause of death has been ruled an accidental drowning, according to the L.A. County Coroner. The singer also had heart disease and cocaine in her system when she died, although the only drugs found in her hotel room where Xanax, Ibuprofen and Midol. A source told TMZ that it’s possible Whitney had a heart attack in the bath and then drowned. [Just Jared, TMZ]

Science Looking To Ecstasy To Treat PTSD Sufferers

After controversy surrounded mind-altering “psychedelic” drugs like LSD, MDMA and psilocybin (the compound found in “magic mushrooms”) in the 1960s, tougher drug laws brought many clinical studies hoping to reveal the drugs’ “complex psychological effects” to a halt. Now, the FDA has begun to approve some research using the drugs and some firmly believe they can help treat a myriad of psychological issues. Keep reading »

Evan Dando & 16 Other Celebs Caught On Camera (Supposedly) Doing Drugs

I am pretty sure Evan Dando — lead singer of the vastly important band, The Lemonheads — has not given a f**k since the ’90s, but even I was a tad surprised that he tweeted this photo following a gig in Arizona. In addition to partying with that handful of Jolly Ranchers in the corner (love those!), Evan also had a few lines of what looks to be cocaine ready to snort. I promptly sent the photo over to Julie to get her opinion on the matter, as she is Evan’s biggest fan, and she replied, “The worst part is, he drinks PEPSI. CRUSH OVER.” (Julie, like me, is firmly on Team Coke — that’s Coca-Cola, natch.) [Twitter]

Not that Evan actually cares what people think of the way he spends his off-hours, but he’s not the first celeb to be busted on camera in the company of illegal substances. Click onward for more!

  • Leslie Carter, the 25-year-old sister of Nick and Aaron Carter, died  on Tuesday from an apparent drug overdose, according to the police report. The official cause of death is pending toxicology tests, but the Carters’ stepmother Ginger Carter told responding police at the family’s upstate New York home that Leslie took drugs for depression, schizophrenia, and anxiety, as well as muscle relaxants. What’s also quite sad is that Ginger Carter was also on drugs when speaking to police, with “slurred speech” and “glassy eyes,” to the extent that police feared she might be at risk for an overdose, too. Our thoughts go out to the Carter family. [People]
  • Frances Bean Cobain’s 2009 restraining order court papers about Courtney Love’s crazy drug-addled lifestyle have been released. In it, Frances claims their cat died from living in a trash-filled house and their dog died after eating Courtney’s pills; she also says Courtney frequently falls asleep holding lit cigarettes and that one night Courtney drove to an ex-boyfriend’s house to throw rocks and scream at his kids. Egads. The poor thing had her restraining order granted, fortunately. [Newser]
