Michael Jackson: Veteran Anesthesiologist Shopper

by at . Comments

Innocent victim of Dr. Conrad Murray, victim of the perils of prescription medication, victim of his own abuse of his body or a little bit of all three?

However you want to describe him, Michael Jackson was an addict. So much so that he actually interviewed an anesthesiologist before he died.

Jackson wanted a personal anesthesiologist to travel to London and "take care of him" during his This Is It tour, according to a new report.

This Was It

As we know, the London tour never ended up happening, as Jackson, scared and sedated in his final days, passed away before it could begin.

Michael's Propofol addiction for years before his death was no secret, and he tried recruiting Dr. David Adams, a Las Vegas anesthesiologist.

Dr. Adams told LAPD investigators that just months before MJ's death, Dr. Conrad Murray and Michael Jackson both met with him about it.

Adams had a history with Michael, having put him under with Propofol four times over the course of two years for various medical procedures.

Adams texted Murray, "I'd like to be on board. Let's talk about it." However, MJ and Murray never contacted him again, according to Adams.

Murray's defense has subpoenaed Dr. Adams for his upcoming trial on involuntary manslaughter charges, set to star in March or April.

It's not entirely clear why, but seems likely that Murray will try to use Adams as part of his defense theory that Jackson was a lost cause.

In other words, he was such an addict and in such poor shape that to hold Murray accountable for his demise is legally unsubstantiated.

What do you think? Dr. Conrad Murray ...

If Dr. Murray knew MJ was an addict (as he says he did) then he should not have prescribed and given drugs to him. It is unethical and in many states illegal to do so. He knew what he was doing. This drug had no medical use other than to sedate a person for surgery and he knew that. "First,do no harm" begins the oath all physicians must take. Providing an addict with a dangerous drug for no medical reason is doing a lot of harm. It seems to me that Dr Murray let money (and lots of it) override his professional responsibility and his moral compass.
