I re-listened to the interview on Marc Maron's WTF podcast today. I had totally forgotten that he was on to discuss Body Brokers, the film about the corruption in drug rehab facility racket. It just drives home how horrible his apparent relapse OD was. As Michael says in the interview, "relapse is a part of my life, but I'm good today".

It also may be looking like he was yet another victim of the Fentanyl cutting that is going on with cocaine and heroin these days—same thing that killed comedian Fuquan Johnson and two others the other day.

Anyway, Marc Maron has reposted the interview for free. It's a poignant listen that I would recommend for anyone who was fan of Michael's work.


Wonder if fentanyl or just an OD after losing tolerance a la Sid Vicious. Or both.


Could be a straight up OD if it was heroin, much less likely with blow.

I don't mean to speculate before there are toxicological results, it's just that there is a big trend with dealers using fentanyl to cut coke and heroin in order to boost the high and keep customers coming back. Users aren't typically aware of that and the increased risk involved. Most (though not all) illicit drug deaths these days involve fentanyl.

It's silly as hell all the fentanyl around while people in pain mgmnt are the ones going thru hoops to get even half strength hydros or Tramadols (not real opiates) now. Govt did the only thing it could by scaring prescribers and messing with people with back pain, neuropathiy, car accidents, root canals, etc. Meanwhile, illicit users are dropping like flies because the dealers have so much F, that they gotta hide the sh in heroin. Makes as much sense as the govt usually does. I remem a SEAL whose lower leg was destroyed by an AK47 round and the news source showed the pic of him sitting in chopper all bummed out with a fentanyl sucker in his mouth. That's the drug for AK leg amputations and street level fun. Opposite poles of experience, but LESS available to the leg guy. Life = ultimate absurd circus.

I met a guy recently who told me that he had OD'd multiple times over the last month. He was taking Fentanyl cut with Xanax. When he felt too low afterward, he'd chase it with some meth. That's just wild but from the look of his appearance, I didn't think he was lying.

The worst part is it only takes a few specs to make people OD on fent. So weird that they would cut it with coke(unless you're going for the Philip Seymour Hoffman Special). Normally it's with other downers or whatever.
