Jackson Doc Offers 'Potent Narcotic' Solution

7/10/2009 5:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One of Michael Jackson's doctors wanted Michael Jackson to trade his dependence on Demerol for another "potent narcotic."

Dr. Alex Farshchian wrote Michael Jackson a letter -- dated July 21, 2002 -- in which he writes, "Buprinex (sic) is the potent narcotic I told you about last week. It is just like the D but better." Buprenex is an injectable narcotic painkiller.

During a search of Neverland, Santa Barbara County Sheriff's deputies seized a scribbled note -- which may have been written by Jackson and found around his drug stash -- that says "Buprenex does the same as demerol, the only difference is you can't become an addict on Buprenex." The note refers to Buprenex as "synthetic demeroll (sic)." It goes on: "2 viles, I would feel safe having it in case of axident (sic)."

Our research shows if Buprenex is taken for long periods of time or at high doses, it can become addictive.

The doctor refers in his letter to a "5-7 day program that offers you the solution." The doctor does not explain the program.

TMZ, ISN'T IT AGAINST THE LAW FOR YOU TO HAVE THIS EVIDENCE. LAW ENFORCEMENT NEED NOT BE HANDLING EVIDENCE. LAPD IS CORRUPT. THEY SHOULD NOT BE SELLING THIS INFORMATION. SOME ONE NEEDS TO BE PROSECUTED. VIOLATION OF THE LAW.

Someone needs to go back to High School. Also, I'm sure someone else who reads these forums watches "Intervention" every so often, so do any of you remember that one chick who was a meth head that would scribble crazy ramblings while naked and high as a kite in her room? This paper looks like hers.

The phrase "This is It" is in the letter...wonder if that was the inspiration for the name of London concerts.

Geez leave it alone already will ya, who really cares on how many if any drugs MJ was on. The guy is dead why do outlets continue to hammer something pointless and make it worthy to post on a site. Leave alone already TMZ was the first to break the news of his death so just take your bow and move on, because I'm sure there is other reports that could be posted then this same ole crap!
