Elvis' Drugs

For Sale

6/17/2007 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

elvispres_rong_6113302_400-1The King may have left the building but his prescription pills are still here: A bottle that contained Elvis Presley's prescription antihistamines was sold this week at an auction for more than $2,600. That's a mighty expensive prescription plan! While the bottle still contained some of The King's original pills, L.A. County police told auction house Julien's that it would be a federal crime to sell the bottle with pills included. 

Other unusual Hollywood ephemera sold during the auction included a gold-plated gun owned by the Elvis, which sold for more than $28,000; Alfred Hitchcock's passport, which went for more than $19,000; and a prop umbrella once used by Marilyn Monroe for $42,000. The umbrella will become part of the collection of the Museum of Style Icons in County Kildare, Ireland.

Didn't Elvis buy his pills under a fake name, just like anna nicole smith?

So how do you know it's his?

It's ridiculus to sell his pills and it IS against the law. I wouldn't buy anything from a star. They made enough money off of my buying their records, movies etc. They owe US! LOL.

They were told it was illegal to sell the bottle with pill inside - and they did it anyway.

Considering what happened to Britney, would anyone be surprised if this ends up in court????????

I am amazed at the fanatic behavior of Elvis fans. My mother adored him and I thought he was nuts. To spend good money on an emply pill container is idiotic. Send the money to a good charity or animal shelter. Geez!

Elvis is still envied by millions to write trash about this great man, get over it, he was the BEST. NOBODY comes close to him in talent or looks.

there's a reason he's still making lots of money after his death.... ethical/practical or not.

Is it just me or does Elvis look like Greasy Bear in the photo TMZ chose? Maybe Greasy Bear should go out and earn a living as an Elvis impersonator and stop being a waste of space.
