Jackson Drug Aliases

7/2/2009 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonMichael Jackson used a slew of aliases to score prescription meds, and we know the two names that could unlock the key to gross abuse by Jackson and some prominent doctors.

We've learned Jackson frequently used the names Omar Arnold and Jack London to get powerful drugs, including Demerol. Jackson also used the name of one of his bodyguards, as well as the name of the office manager for one of his doctors.

The DEA, which is joining to assist the LAPD in its investigation of several doctors who prescribed drugs to Jackson, will be hunting down these names and others.

Sources tell us the prescription abuse was so egregious, one doctor would call the pharmacy and say Jackson was coming down to get Demerol. The pharmacy would then fill the prescription, leaving the patient's name blank.

And now the pharmacists... At least a hundred people around him have been careless at the best. They all have blood on their hands.

I know how addicts are, and how difficult it is to control them, but how many people around him closed their eyes when he was sharing his bed with boys, when he had needles everywhere, when he was obtaining his 10th nose job. All those ''yes man'' and women... I can't believe nobody loved him enough, or didn't use the law, to just say NO to him, say: ''That's enough, go get help, or your children will be taken away from you.''

It's obvious he became addicted, but shame on the doc's and shame of the pharmacists who pretended like they didn't see it. Pretty telling when that pharmacy in Beverly Hills willingly ALLOWED Jackson to run up a $50,000 + tab. That speaks mountains about THEM, not just him. And shame on anyone who said they "didn't know" when chances are they just weren't plain paying enough attention. Those that claim they "Didn't" know Jackson was abusing prescriptions are more than likely those who didn't KNOW him at all. And those who did know him that kept hush about his abuse are what are known in the psychology world as: ENABLERS.

Shame all around.

Jackson has always gone to extreme. If any doctor should be put out of business for gross abuse it's the plastic surgeons that allowed a very sick guy to keep mutilating his face.

I'm sure a lot of doctors will have their careers ruined over this, but why not blame Jackson? If he was doctor shopping and using aliases to buy drugs, then he knew he what he was doing was wrong and potentially deadly. The media will play up the bad doctors, but how many decent doctors cut him off? The only one who bares any responsibility for this is Michael Jackson- he had to know the risk and one cannot play with such dangerous drugs and think that death won't be the ultimate outcome.

I really wonder if this drug abuse was an attempt at taking his life. Not all at once, but slowly, knowing he'd end up like Elvis or Marilyn Monroe- immortalized as an icon. If his drug abuse was as bad as it sounds, the guy was likely to end up flaking on these concerts, and ending up in bankruptcy, he wouldn't be that legend. The tour can live on as the magical come back for Michael Jackson, not another failure.

Michael- I am so sad at your passing. Yes, this is partly Michael's fault, but the main blame goes to the doctors that enabled him to get to his death. Michael I hope you are at peace and in a better place. I also hope the DEA and Los Angeles police go after each and every doctor that allowed this to happen.

My wife has had SLE (or lupus) for 30 years. The types of medication MJ is taking are NOT those normally taken by any lupus patient! What does beating have to do with SLE? Lupus is an immune collagen disease that can have serious consequences. Most patients do well while uder steroid treatment with other related medications. Any hematologist worth their salt would not prescribe these types of powerful medicines to SLE patients. Face it.. MJ was drug addict just like Elvis! I am a clinical laboratory scientist (ASCP) by trade and I can never remember drug levels being orders by docs for these types of medicines he was taking for SLE patients. Get your facts straight about SLE people!

Look at all the WJ spermette cheerleaders on TMZ. WJ rahrahrah!    

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink.

Michael was solely responsible for Michael, unless he was incompetent. If he was, there surely wasn't anyone that went to court for legal guardianship.
