Jackson Doc Self-Prescribed Powerful Drugs

8/24/2009 8:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Arnold Klein, Michael Jackson's friend and doctor, wrote dozens of prescriptions for powerful controlled substances for himself, according to a search warrant obtained by TMZ.

We got hold of the affidavit for the search warrant that allowed the DEA to raid Mickey Fine Pharmacy in Beverly Hills -- the pharmacy Dr. Klein often used to fill prescriptions for Michael Jackson, often using aliases.

According to the affidavit, records show Dr. Klein self-prescribed 27 times from March, 2006 through May, 2009. The prescriptions include "the medications hydrocodone (Vicodin), modafinil (Provigil), diazepam (Valium), and injectable midazolam (Versed). The prescriptions were filled at Mickey Fine Pharmacy in Beverly Hills.

According to California law, "No person shall prescribe, administer, or furnish a controlled substance for himself."

It is not known if Dr. Klein used the prescriptions for himself or possibly for Michael Jackson. We do know Dr. Klein often prescribed to Jackson using various aliases.

Interestingly, the affidavit states Dr. Klein's lawyer told the DEA that his client "has never self-prescribed."

So, where are the checks and balances for pharmacies in LA, and their filling rx's practices? These kinds of pharmacies are well known by pill pushing money grubbing doctors for their celebrity clients.Where are the regulatory departments that check a few times a year on pharmacies and the doctors names just keep popping up? They seem to be under the radar,then when a fool junkie celebrity dies then the investigations begin? Celebrity junkies are not news, and the hush money paid to their doctors and pharmacies. Jacko has been addicted for years and his loving mother and Jacko family probally just wanted him gone for the funds he was sending their way!

He's toast. So is the pharmacy.
Why do these attorneys for these dope pushers make these statements that can
be proven untrue?
Just like howard k $tern's lawyer
said no prescriptions from dr insodeep kapoor will be found
made to h k $tern. Uh huh.

Bye Bye Dr. Klein. I'm sure you'll enjoy jail and all the new boyfriends you will make. Like I said before all those people working at his office need to be looking for a new job because it will be shut down eventually and their boss will be in jail.

while my guitar gently weeps    

Della posted this on children's schooling story, my reply --- {edits} --- her post;

L.A. County coroner's officials found lethal levels of the powerful anesthetic propofol after examining Michael Jackson's body, according to a search warrant affidavit unsealed today in Houston.-------Why Houston? Is Dr. in Houston?--------Autopsy???

According to the search warrant, Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray, told LA PD detectives that he had been treating Jackson for insomnia for about six weeks. He had been giving Jackson 50 milligrams of propofol every night using an intravenous line------------about how many hours of unconsciousness for about 110 pounds if using 50 milligrams--------Autopsy???????

But Murray told detectives that he feared Jackson was forming an addiction and began trying to wean the pop star off the drugs.--if their was an addiction' it wasn't forming --- He lowered the dosage to 25 milligrams and mixed it with two other sedatives, lorazepam ----{was lorazepam injected intravenously by shot, pill, mixed into Iv drip line or blended into Propofil container}--- and midazolam --- {by pill or shot or intravenous drip, same question}---. On June 23, two days before Jackson's death, he administered two medications --{what two medication's}---and withheld the propofol.--- {did Michael achieve sleep that night}---- Autopsy???

On the morning Jackson died, Murray tried to induce sleep without using propofol,------{did Michael know he was experimenting and why was he experimenting after a grueling rehearsal}------- according to the affidavit. He said he gave Jackson Valium --- {by pill or injection, same question}--- at 1:30 a.m. When that didn't work, he said he injected lorazepam intravenously at 2 a.m. --- {what happened between 2 am. and 3 am. between Dr. and Michael} --- At 3 a.m., when Jackson was still awake, Murray administered midazolam.---{by pill or intravenously, same question}--- Autopsy?

Over the next few hours, Murray said he gave Jackson various drugs. ----{what, how many, how much, how, where and why, for seven hours and forty minutes}---- Then at 10:40 a.m., Murray administered 25 milligrams of propofol ---{Died}---- after Jackson repeatedly demanded the drug, according to the court record.----------- did he then leave as reported -------- we know his car was towed, and his calls to Houston were discovered a month later when informant outed his office workers -----Autopsy?

Mr. Murray collected about two months of free time served, for the charge of blending drugs, then' inducing Coma' that leaves patient completely dependent on Oxygenation, then returning to find abandoned patient in cardiac arrest from oxygen starvation, then' tampering with crime scene followed, except' police never secured house as a crime scene {for day's, or even for hour's} following Michael's death.

Is LA police stating the 8 bottles of Propofil were untraceable, Propofil was a subject of batch recall around that time-frame, that accuses police of predisposed to minimize the charges.

Autopsy report's contains no traceable evidence of drugs origin, the delay only allows time for false accusation's to baffle.

The phone calls Dr. said he left room to make' is now a two minutes in bathroom, guess he skips the soap and water part???

What about his Attorneys lies and his Attorney's Attorney's report.

We all only await arrest of Dr's and Pharmacy closures, but we are Starved for Autopsy report.

Dr. Klein is strange and before reading this, I swore he was on "something" during one of his infamous interviews. You can tell when someone is loaded.(slurred speech like Paula Abdul & Anna Nicole) And, what's up w/ his wall-eye?
