Michael Jackson's Demerol Tonic

6/27/2009 10:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonMichael Jackson had a habit of getting Demerol injections -- he even had a special name for them.

We're told Jackson called it "health tonic." He would have a doctor inject him because, we're told, he didn't like needles.

Our sources have told us Jackson was injected with Demerol at 11:30 AM the day he died. Shortly thereafter Jackson went into cardiac arrest.

You'll recall, Jackson also had a name for wine -- Jesus juice.

I'll bet Jesus wasn't humored over that name and I'll bet he doesn't call it that now.

technically you could call it Jesus juice cause yeah for one it is supposed to represent jesus blood and wasnt there one time when they turned water into wine....wanted all to be drunk, would have been better with more water instead of turning it into wine.
