Corey Haim -- Thousands of Pills, Dozens of Docs

3/17/2010 7:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Corey Haim had been getting a massive amount of prescription drugs from numerous doctors, according to the California Attorney General.

Jerry Brown: Click to watch
A.G. Jerry Brown -- who is investigating a fraudulent prescription drug ring that has a Corey Haim connection -- said on HLN's "Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell," "How many people go to 10 or 15 or 20 doctors and then run around to 10, 12 and more pharmacies to go fulfill them and sometimes two different doctors in the same day?"

Brown says pharmacy records show Haim obtained "thousands" of pills from dozens of doctors over the last year.

As we first reported, just days before Haim's death, he obtained 4 prescriptions from the same psychiatrist -- Valium, Vicodin, Soma and haloperidol, an antipsychotic drug.

It's hard to believe that with today's technology, someone can get/fill numerous prescriptions this easily and no one is the wiser. What are the doctors and pharmacies using? Stone tablets, a hammer and chisel like the Flintstones? All these systems use many common denominators - SSN, Physician, Med, etc. It really can't be that difficult to consolidate and work off ONE system. But then again.... that is all tied to the Health Care Reform can of worms.

Can we please stop blaming the doctors for all of these freakin LOSER DRUG ADDICTS! Some people actually need pain medication and they should be ALLOWED to get some if they need it. Let's not change the system just because there are addicts in the world as that's not fair to everyone else on the planet who is responsible and NOT WILLING to risk their life for drugs. Let's face it. This guy was a sad, pathetic DRUG ADDICT. He would have gotten and bought drungs ANYWHERE he could have, inclusing on the street.

It is sad but let's not cry anymore over people who KILL THEMSELVES with drugs, let's instead feel sorry for people who did NOT foolishly die at their own hands, like farrah Fawcett or Steve Irwin or John Ritter. THOSE deaths were truly sad..this one is just frankly, PATHETIC.

Drug companies do NOT want a centralized database because it will cut into their profits. That is exactly why there isn't one now, and hopefully Brown will get something done about this. But the drug companies are very powerful so he's got a big battle ahead.

Seems like being a prescription drug addict is a full-time job with all the doctor and pharmacy visits one must make. How was he paying for all this?
