I can't believe it was 'accidental'. Sounds like suicide to me. And that's right-- he did have a second chance at life.. Sad for his family...

I agree with the poster #36 that said that it was a gamble.
You take cocaine and then when you want to come down you take a few xanex. Then you get more cocaine..... and then take vicodin. I do not believe that he thought he was going to kill himself or that we was trying to commit suicide. He was a drug addict.
Every Dr. in this country has people addicted to medication. The drug companies rely on their perscriptions to make money.(and they make TONS of it) Look back 15-20 years ago.........we never knew people on kind of meds Dr's are perscribing on a regular day to day basis. Now, everyone knows someone who is on Anti-Anxiety, anti depressants, muscle relaxers, pain killers. What happened to dealing with pain and life's troubles without drugs. Dr.'s don't care. Their solution is always MEDS. You can watch TV and on a daily basis and see at least 15 commercials for meds. They want you to see the commercial and then go ask your Dr. about them so that they will give them to you. Dr's are "in on it" with the drug companies and promote certain meds for a reason.
SO SAD!! He will not be the last person to die from OD. There are many more to come- many famous and many not so famous.

Why call it accidental.. maybe he meant to kill himself. Afterall, when you do drugs and drink too much, don't you really have a death wish.. c'mon... hate to say it, same with Heath Ledger.. call it suicide.. not accidental... just because no one found a note...

So I guess when someone shoots a hole in their head playing Russian Roulette for hours on end, the cause is also accidental. This seems to be the new cause of death for celebrities to soften the blow of their true cause of death. I know the word suicide places such a negative in their legacy. But the fact remains when such a large amount of lethal drugs are taken, this is bound to happen. This goes for Michael Jackson, Heath Ledger as the most recent to die from lethal drugs. From the early 70's to present day, the entertainment world has lost dozens to this cause of death. The list will grow for those who can't cope without drugs in their life. The lure of drugs for the young and famous is an almost early death sentence. Intervention can only work if the people that really care put in the all out effort. Yet, the person that has fame so far up their ass, will most likely not listen to anyone. What a waste of talent to drugs.

Accident? No. The true tragic accident is when I stumbled upon this stupid story on D.J. who? And how many chances at a second life did this person have? His mother should have had an accident when he was in vivo...It would have spared us all this stupid idiotic story for sure.

All this remembering DJ AM crap on MTV, its bull crap.
Why should i have him in my memories when he's the one that did it to himself. This goes for anyone, if you kill yourself, by putting toxins in your body, i dont feel pity for you. Shows weakness and selfishness, thinking of no one but himself. Its all crap. NO PITY

Wow, poor, poor Adam!!
I mean, how can we expect any rational, intelligent adult to know that a combination of cocaine,oxycodone, hydrocodone (Vicodin), Ativan, Klonopin, Xanax, Benadryl and Levamisole (a drug used to cut cocaine with)could kill you????
I mean he was probably just going about his normal day and stopped to say "Gee I think I will enjoy some cocaine,oxycodone, hydrocodone (Vicodin), Ativan, Klonopin, Xanax, Benadryl and Levamisole (a drug used to cut cocaine with)", and then unbeknowst to him, it killed him!!!

The Drug Companies should be sued!! It is an outrage! What a total and complete accident!!
