Whitney Houston Died a Cokehead

The Los Angeles County coroner's office has found that Whitney Houston did indeed have cocaine in her system, despite her claims that she had stopped using. The autopsy's official cause of death, however, was "drowning and effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use." (Marijuana and Xanax were also found in her system, but they did not contribute to her death, the coroner said.)

I actually didn't know adults could drown in situations like that -- I would have thought her reflexes would have brought her to. Perhaps she was just so strung out her body gave up. Very sad. (Via TMZ)

I agree with the assessment from NBC's medical person, Whitney's heart was just too taxed by the mix of cocaine and prescription downers - and pot - and simply gave out. All those downers in a relaxing hot bath after a previous night of coke use, it trashes your body. Such a shame, she could have had such a better fate...
