Dangerous Drug Found in Jackson Home

7/1/2009 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonSources tell TMZ an extremely dangerous and potent drug used for surgical anesthesia was found at Michael Jackson's house after he died ... and this may well be the drug that killed him.

We're told the drug Propofol was discovered at the residence. The drug is used to put people under anesthesia before surgery. It is an extremely powerful drug that is only available to medical personnel. As one source said, "There is no conceivable way this drug can be properly prescribed for home use."

The drug can only be administered with an IV. Interestingly, Propofol burns and the drug Lidocaine is used to reduce the pain associated with the Propofol injection. As we first reported, Lidocaine was found near Jackson's body.

One of the major side-effects of Propofol is cardiac arrest if it's taken in combination with narcotic painkillers, however, Propofol is so powerful it can stop someone's heart on its own.

A registered nurse has come out and said Jackson begged her for the drug Diprivan -- the brand name for Propofol. She says he needed it for insomnia but she declined to supply it.

Sources say the drug is so inappropriate and reckless for home use, if a doctor facilitated it for Jackson and it caused his death, he or she could be prosecuted for manslaughter.

Wonder what Dr Klein sounds like? Was he the one that made the call while Dr. Murray did "CPR"?

WOW! I wonder if this is true! Apart of me is starting to believe michael wanted to end it and paid someone to help him get there, but the doctor still needs to be charged for the murder for prescribing and injecting the stuff!!

R.I.P Ur truly a legend and will be forever loved!

This is GROSS but I guess they know the EXACT time of death after doing this autopsy procedure:

Vitreous Humour - The liquid behind the eye is extracted with a syringe. An equal amout of water is injected in, just for cosmetic reasons. This can be used to determine time of death

Remeber in the 911 call the operator asked if the doctor saw what happened...and the question was avoided. Maybe it was given to him to help him sleep and the doctor checked up on him just a little too late. I don't think he did it himself..that it had to be adminstered. I cannot even fathom trying to put my own IV in....(Cring)

Some people go to extreme lengths to get some sleep. Who knows.

This is proof that MJ was in such deep...DEEP depression over what he had become. And its ALL OVER HIS APPEARANCE. Does anyone here think we wouold be talking about this right now if MJ was a handsome black man? Even though he once was that.....MJ perceived himself to be ugly and began with surgery. One after the other. It snowballed and got worse each time, with the hope that the NEXT ONE will make it all better. Well it didnt, it was all worse.

DOES ANYONE HERE HONESTLY THNK MJ DIDNT KNOW HE LOOKED F'ING CRAZY? DO U THINK HE DIDNT KNOW HIS FACE LOOKED ALIEN???? HE KNEW. IT MADE HIM MISERABLE. Its what, eventually, took his life! Enough said.

( he probably didnt molest, just wanted to hang with the innocence of children, no judging, no physical diminishments)
