be incredible. Randall agreed, she handed him a list of pills: Oxycondin, Ambien,
Vicoprofen, Diazepam, Morphine Sulfate, Demerol, Endocett, Percodan, Valium,
Vicodin and Xanax. Liquid Vicodin was also big business, celebrities were dissolving

often received gifts from the celebrities he serviced, Spago picnic baskets,
gold records, photos, tour jackets, concert tickets and autographed CD’s. The majority of these celebrities were more comfortable abusing a drug prescribed
by a doctor than drugs (cocaine and heroin) supplied by a street dealer, the
logic: since a doctor is prescribing pills, I don’t feel like a junkie scoring
a fix from a pusher and it’s legal, makes me feel better about my addiction.
