A Little Song, Dance, Heroin Down My Pants

8/28/2008 12:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained photos of evidence seized in Mackenzie Phillips drug bust.

The photos show three balloons and three small Ziplock bags which cops say contained heroin and cocaine. There is also a pic of 34 syringes, her mugshot and her driver's license.

The TSA initially did not suspect drugs. TSA employees then began to pat her down -- which is routine -- and she became uncooperative. They asked her to sit, and that's when we're told the balloons and baggies fell from her waistband through her pant leg and onto the floor.

At that point, MacKenzie knew she was caught and said so to folks at TSA.

sln... congrats. i, too, have been clean for some time now, almost a year and a half, and i was a junkie like mackenzie. that being said, i know i haven't "overcome" my disease. and neither have you. this is something that i need to fight for the rest of my life, and on any given day i could mess it up. none of us are ever "recovered." people screw up. drug addicts use drugs, it's what we do, it's our nature. it's a miracle when we don't. and it's easy to say addiction is not a disease when you don't have it. SCIENCE says it is, and more importantly, addicts like myself KNOW it is. good luck mackenzie, sometimes an occurence like this is necessary to wake us up and make us work harder.

Somebody , shoot it! Quick!    

#4 keep in it real ,and Max #32 ,well said. ADDICTON is not a diesease. It is an addiction. Once the human body is addicted to it, it is the person's choice now to stay away from it. The person's first choice was chocie#1, go find some drugs and alcohol. These things don't just befall youlike a diesease. You seek them out. Choice #2 to stay away from your chemicaly made body away from your addiction is to...Leave the world of former contacts alone. Leave. Stay with a step program .
Mackenzie had a terrible father. A drug crazy, wild young lifestyle, Worked in Hollywood too. No mother really. Shehad good peole behind her and in front of her helpingher toget betterand tostaythat way. She got well. Obviously , she choose not to follow through with the step program for life,find bad people ,find drugs..her choice.

GOD works in mysterious ways... Who would be so presumptuous to assume that they would not get caught taking these items through Airport Security these days? She is a person who is in deep trouble but has GOD in her heart. I PRAY for you Mackenzie, may you get the help you need. Please be have faith and be strong!

"why enable them" i should smack you. CONGRATULATIONS on quitting smoking. idiot. that is NOTHING when you've kicked heroin. because you quit smoking, junkies should be able to quit too? are you that dim witted? do you know what it's like to be hooked on dope? didn't think so. you don't get what feels like the worst flu of your life when you go 4 hours without a cigarette. the two cannot even be compared. stop bragging, that is no big feat when you put it up against what i had to kick, what this poor woman has to kick.

Jill...

"it's her body" "she's not hurting me" "she's not hurting you" Time for you to wake up!!! When she drives down the road all drugged up and kills an innocent family...when her drug dealer gets to your kids and gets them hooked or when your family member gets HIV from somebody she slept with....

Come back to us and see if you can spew the the same nonsence!

I agree with the folks urging prayer. Pray for Mackenzie and everyone reading this string who know intimately what substance abuse habits feel like and how devastating the effects are.. (I lost two people that I love(d) last yr from same.)

Also pray for the peole making the foolish self-serving rants and moralizing about something they probably don't have clue about

anyone with ears to hear; let's do join our hearts together (today) and pray to our loving and healing God

THANK YOU!!! I agree Drug Addiction is a choice,a diesease happens not by choice.You can choose to quit snorting coke,or shooting up.You can not choose to quit cancer,or MS.Drug Addiction being classified as a diesease is BS,and was made up buy Scientist,and Doctor's greed.If it was not classified a diesease the Insurance Company would nto pay for treatment.I have a sister in law,a brother,and a cousin who are addicts.All 3 of them will tell you that they did it out of choose not,because it is a diesease.This diesease nonsense is a excuse for all the addicts out there to slip back into there ways,and then cry the blues.That they could not help themseleves,cause they have a diesease.

To keepin it real...I'm not sure what is sadder..that mckensie is struggling with this again or you and people like you that have no understanding of addiction. And yes, it is a disease, a disease as real as any other that centers in the mind and its whole objective is to kill the person afflicted.Getting clean is easy, staying clean is more difficult. Those of us that have been able to rremain clean for extened periods are blessed but even with that it is a day at a time. It is so easy to forget just how horrible being addicted is.. Nothing will take one to a place of incomprehenible demoralazation like addiction. One of the paradoxs is that after being clean for a length of time, it is actually harder getting back. It was for me anyway, the hardest thing I have ever done and then only with God's help was I to get clean again. My thoughts and prayers go out to Mckensie and all addicts that are suffering today....Keep it Real and attend a NA or AA meeting. Then be judgemental.

This is so sad. She is totally, totally dependent on drugs. She tried cleaning herself up years ago and obviously can't keep the monkey off her back. What's it going to take? She is clearly on path to self-destruction. What a shame!

Not real bright, or compassionate, are ya, Jill? Drugs effect all of us. The crime rate spirals in about a hundred different ways. And when we quit caring about each other, we are in big trouble. Anyone remember reading "The Lottery" by Sirley Jackson, or the poem "Hangman" by Maurice Ogden. I challenge you, Jill, to read both. Bettin' you won't.
It's called the head in the sand syndrome, or "Don't tell me what I don't want to know".
