Lobbyists Use MJ's Death

to Restrict Propofol

9/20/2010 4:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's death is Exhibit A for California lobbyists who are pushing for a law restricting the use of Propofol.

MJ's Death
Michael's Law is being pushed by a group of people ... all of whom have lost loved ones to the misuse of Propofol. They've been going door-to-door in L.A. and Santa Barbrara -- handing out leaflets that describe the drug and how it killed MJ.

Their goal is "to prevent doctors from making careless choices, and stop them from administrating drugs that should not be administered outside of the hospital setting."

The Drug Enforcement Administration just announced it's considering tighter restrictions on Propofol.

How are we supposed to believe your reports when you cannot write Michael Jacksons name properly and keep calling him Wacko. It kills your reporting....try and stick to facts when your actually reporting facts...(well atleast when your making it look like your facts are verified TMZ). If you have no respect for Michael Jackson..have respect to the billions of fans he has all over the world---businesswise, you lose a big support in your readership antagonizing Michael Jackson fans.
