That’s the name of the meth & opiate combo that helped kill River Phoenix on Halloween, 1993, at the Viper Room in Hollywood.
However, his death was not entirely from Persian Brown, as some sources make it sound. Here’s what else the 23-year-old actor had in his system when he died:
- cough syrup
- cannibus, and
Cough syrup? Maybe all the snorting had given him a scratchy throat. In any case, other celebrities who had meth in their systems when they died include Rick James and Chris Penn. Like Phoenix,Â Penn and JamesÂ didn’t just have meth–all died with a stew of illegal and prescription compounds in their blood.
But meth isn’t all Hollywood glitter. If you don’t believe me, take a look at the pictures in yesterday’s entry.Â And remember toÂ take the Frat House or Meth Lab Photo Challenge!
