Drug Stash Found at Michael Jackson's

3/26/2010 8:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A newly-released search warrant details what cops found at Michael Jackson's home in the wake of his death -- and the list is long. It includes:

- 3 - 10 mg/ml 1% lydocaine vials (2 empty, 1 3/4 full)
- 1 empty bottle propofol 200 mg
- 1 pulse monometer
- 1 empty vial lorazepam 4 mg
- 2 empty vials midazolam 10mg
- 1 empty vial propofol 1g/100ml
- 1 black nylon bag
- 1 dark blue costco bag
- 1 light blue canvas bag
- 1 pill bottle with 13 tablets containing 25 mg ephedrine, 200 mg caffeine, 80 mg aspirin
- 4 vials propofol 200mg/20ml
- 2 vials 5 mg flumazenil
- 1 vial lorazepam
- 1 vial lidocane
- 200mg vials of propofol (1 full, 1 1/4 full)
- 1 empty bag I.V. drip of sodium chloride with syringe
- 1 ziplock baggy containing 18 tubes of Benoquin

Note that one of the items seized was a canvas bag. Bodyguard Alberto Alvarez told cops Dr. Murray told him to put vials of propofol in a plastic bag and put that bag in a canvas bag.

Once again, for all brainless idiots on this board:

Benoquin Cream 20% contains a potent depigmenting agent and is not a cosmetic skin bleach. Use of Benoquin Cream 20% is contraindicated in any conditions other than disseminated vitiligo. Use only for final depigmentation in extensive vitiligo. Areas of normal skin distant to the site of Benoquin Cream 20% application may become depigmented, and irregular, excessive, unsightly, and frequently permanent depigmentation may occur.

Michael never sold his soul, never wanted to be a tool of the industry, never wanted to bow for media.
That's whats bothering some media, some rotten fish in the industry, haters, and even some selfisch hysterical fans.

And yes he was human too, he might had some bad habits and good ones. But really, when are ya all gonna see it, there was nothing to bash him about. No need to be a hater or an MJ lover to see, that this is just a stupid circus to serve brainwashed sensation addicts. And to serve people chasing money of others.

By the way really bad journalism done here too, you call this news? There is nothing other than the propofol and the lidocain.

Anyhow, nobody ever defeted MJ, he wins even in death!

There shouldn't be MJ haters or MJ lovers.
You can just be a fan or not.
That's not what this is all about.
.......Think about it and you will know the answer.

Doc Murray was worried about MJ's "cream" but the cream he wanted to hide wasn't a cause of death to MJ. That statement is therefore an indication that Murray's frantic cleaning of the scene wasn't a guiltly act but was an attempt to protect the patient's privacy.

Even if it were a guilty act, guilty acts occur even when people aren't legally guilty or morally guilty. Something goes wrong in a big way and they panic. You might say it is a standard African-American response, but it is so because risk wrongful blame is also a routine danger that African-Americans face -- less now than in generations past.

make her go away    

What a junky MJ was. No wonder he's dead. It was just a matter of time. Too bad he sucked that good doctor into his evil ways.

Only 5 different types of drugs, (not to count aspirin, caffeine and ephedrine because anyone can have that in their cabinet), and you call that person an addict. WHAT??????

Get a life for sure!!!!!!!!!!!

Only in America can a person be STALKED to death, because of his/her OWN MONEY!

Shame on you American media!

If it hadn't been Dr. Murray it would have been someone else. MJ got what he wanted. Money talks.

This 'drug stash' headline is misleading.
Apart from the Propofol, everything else is standard medication for insomnia / anxiety.
Nothing here to cause an artificial 'high'.

The Benoquin is no surprise either. It is a recognised treatment for vitiligo.

Just seems like another feeble attempt to associate slanderous terms to MJ by the media

Why and how long/recently had he been "stacking" (ECA)..note the ephedrine, caffiene, aspirin pills.

70. Doc Murray was worried about MJ's "cream" but the cream he wanted to hide wasn't a cause of death to MJ. That statement is therefore an indication that Murray's frantic cleaning of the scene wasn't a guiltly act but was an attempt to protect the patient's privacy.

I don't think Murray was concerned with hiding the cream to protect MJ's privacy. It was common knowledge that MJ used Benoquin since it was listed on the Neverland search warrant.

It is more likely that Murray told the security guard that he wanted to hide the cream so that he could get access to the house to hide the Propofol.
Otherwise, why was the Propofol found in the secret cupboard?

Either way, Murray was trying to cover his tracks.
Hardly the actions of an innocent man.

Where was M.J'S kids he loved SO much when he was in his deep almost dead sleep?

Wow...who knew that TMZ readers were so stupid, insensitive and unaware?
A) The list doesn't contain anything we didn't already know. Propofol is mentioned (4) times on the list (he was a chronic insomniac as a result of having Lupus and all of the untrue allegations)
B) The "pill bottle" with ephedrine etc. is a very common health supplement
C) Some of the other drugs are used in the case of emergency, when something goes wrong with propofol. just because they were there doesn't mean Michael Jackson used them.
D) Lydocaine is used to treat pain, like Michael's arthritic back and the pain in his feet from dancing.
E) Benoquin is used by people who have Vitiligo

There are only really 7 different medicines on this list, some are duplicated several times. I'll bet half of TMZ's readers have that many meds in their own medicine cabinets. Stop trying to make Michale Jackson look like a junkie. He was a 50 year old man who had put his body through many years of very strenuous work, had a few illneses and was attempting to get back in shape for all of those concerts. Give the guy a break already.

He was also never a child molester. He was a victim of extortionists and a stupid public who believe whatever the dishonest media dishes up for them.
He was a better parent than most of the readers of TMZ...I would bet my life on that. Look at HIS kids. Then look at your closed.

"in order to return to the house to hide the propofol"

If you believe he was working only to hide evidence then you must have a reason why Murray demanded that MJ be taken to the hospital instead of to the coroner's office. Murray would have to stay with a patient, but could have followed in his own car (after thoroughly cleaning the scene) if the body went to the coroner.

However, if the body went to the coronor's office then Murray might be detained by police, while a hospital gives a stronger appearance of a medical catastrophe. You think Murray stashed some things, rode to the hospital, and then after discovering that he was not detained, tried to return and clean the area?

One thing seems very clear: Murray did not remove evidence from the bedroom although he had the opportunity to do so.

I think Murray's actions as we know them show the correct amounts of competent action, panic, and fixing for Doc Murray's social position and the patient's situation.

Most of our first instincts and most of the really funny situation comedy we see is based on hiding and covering up embarassment and incompetence. It's strange that it is all so natural and so felonious. There really should be a legal standard of reasonableness for obstruction and interference charges.
