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.

9. This is AWESOME. Yes! If these laws had been in place (tighter restriction of diprivan/propofol ... as in scheduling the drug to Class II) Murray would be sitting in jail right now! How in the world he crossed state lines with propofol, albeit through air or mail, and gave Michael Jackson the drug in a home setting with no resuscitative equipment, and is still free is beyond me. And what about the GF Nicole Alvarez? Didn't the propofol come to her mailbox? Why aren't charges being leveraged against her? We need these laws so this won't happen to anyone else. I truly hope that the state of CA will not overlook this problem, like they have with other things pertaining to Michael Jackson. As much as Michael Jackson paid in taxes to the state of CA, you would think the least they could afford him was some JUSTICE, but instead he got some trumped up charges and a racist DA that was out to make himself famous.

Very well said Chico. I totally agree. If anything good at all is to come from Michaels death it must be that this should never happen to anyone else.

The misuse of propofol? You mean there are more people than Michael who were getting at home bedside sedation services from their doctors?
