Jackson Self-Injecting Demerol, Doctor Says

7/10/2009 1:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson Self-Injecting Demerol,A doctor who treated Michael Jackson claimed the singer self-injected Demerol into his system.

We've combed through tens of thousands of pages of the official file for the 2005 molestation trial. In the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's notes, a member of Jackson's security detail -- retired L.A. County Sheriff's deputy Michael Laperruque -- said some doctors were trying to get Jackson off of Demerol, and that one of the doctor's in Santa Barbara "was upset with JACKSON because he had been self-injecting."

Laperruque told detectives he had picked up Jackson's prescriptions for the singer, usually under the name Chris Carter. Carter was one of Jackson's bodyguards.

Laperruque also told detectives one time when he was at Neverland his job was to keep Jackson's family out because they were planning an intervention.

I don't believe most of what is being written on this site. But if Michael really did have a serious drug problem, then there is a whole lot of people to blame for helping create this problem. First off, he had legitimate health problems that would necessitate the need for pain medications, hence why he started taking them. Someone with physical ailments needing pain medication and becoming addicted is just about like someone who is addicted to food needing food. You pretty much have to have it. Michael was in such a dark place in his life because of people lying about him and lying to him. He was basically abused by people all his life. Despite all the allegations, he tried his damnedest to remain strong and probably remained as strong as anyone could without just rolling up in a ball and dying. Can't people just see how sad this is? He wasn't a junkie and he wasn't a pedophile. He was someone suffering, suffering at the hands of others and their evil ways.

It is very difficult to take the pills, vicodin in this case we are gaining control of our body, we must remain very careful and not fall and hang on to drugs, always remember to look at this couple and for our future. I read findrxonline certainly are very addictive and so we need to know control.
