TMZ has Pics of Anna Nicole Smith Refrigerator in Bahamas,Slim Fast & Methadone (UPDATE: Methadone was a Liquid Oral Solution)
Check out all of the pictures at TMZ that they are claiming to have been verified and 100% authentic. Slim-Fast and Methadone. What are the odds that Howard K. Stern would be in two rooms where two people died, one of a mixture drug overdose and the other still to be determined?
The methadone is compelling, as Smith’s son Daniel died from a combination of drugs that included methadone. Law enforcement sources in the Bahamas tell TMZ that at least one witness has come forward and said Howard K. Stern supplied Daniel with methadone just before he died, and flushed the remaining stash down the toilet. That witness is expected to testify next month at the coroner’s inquest into Daniel’s death.

UPDATE II: Methadone Overdoses, Deaths on Rise in U.S.
“Out of no place came methadone,” said James McDonough, director of the Florida Office of Drug Control. “It now is the fastest-rising killer drug.”
Drug experts are stunned over the increase in methadone overdoses and deaths because the drug, which does not provide a quick or potent high, lacks the qualities typical of a substance that would be abused. (Join Together)
Never use more methadone than your doctor has prescribed.
Do not stop using this medication suddenly without first talking to your doctor.
Do not drink alcohol while you are taking methadone. It can increase your risk of a fatal overdose.
Avoid using drugs that make you sleepy (such as cold medicine, pain medication, muscle relaxants, and medicine for seizures, depression or anxiety). Methadone may increase the effects of these other drugs and could also result in a fatal overdose.
