The investigation involved searching the database that keeps track of what controlled substances are prescribed by doctors, how much is prescribed, and who it’s prescribed to.
In a statement released by Joe Jackson’s attorney, Brian Oxman, Jackson expressed his frustration with the decision saying, “I am very disappointed. The misuse of medications by Michael Jackson in the last years of his life was excessive and to fail to bring that to the public eye is ignoring reality.”
In total seven doctors were investigated, not including MJ’s personal doctor, Conrad Murray, who has taken most of the heat for his death. According to authorities, Murray supplied the deadly drug cocktail of sedatives that Michael took the night of his death. He is currently released on bail after pleading not guilty to involuntary manslaughter.
What do you think of this ruling? Do you think Michael Jackson’s doctors should be the ones responsible for not properly keeping track of what meds he was taking, which resulted in eventual death?
