illannoyin: I'm young, rich, good looking, and could probably coast on my hit TV show's residuals for the rest of my life after it ends. But, that's just not enough. What could I do to make my life even more enjoyable?

I've got it! Drugs! A massive amount or dangerous combination of powerful drugs will definitely make my super awesome perfect life even better and I'll finally be truly happy.

ktybear: Adolf Oliver Nipples: Turns out that drug addiction and subsequent overdose can kill you. Who knew?

It was probably the rehab that killed him really. Lots of drug addicts die after rehab. They're not used to the doses and get carried away. Better off staying hooked for some people.


That's one of the biggest factors. Other is they're often using outside of old turf to hide it as long as possible. So they're dealing with people they don't know/trust as well. shiat product, no old cronies playing spotter because they're hiding the addiction and not hanging with those guys.

Back in the day (90s) knew more than a handful of people who died this way. Heroin, more often than not.

Major liberal and I understand the arguments for legalizing *everything* but I've seen such bad shiat with so many drugs (both street and prescription) that outside of weed...I can't go with legalizing it all. It's just too harmful, and while anyone who wants it sure can get it...I think a fark of a lot more people would try heroin if they could just buy it at CVS. I was around people who shot heroin, and never did, but I might've tried it if I could've bought it at CVS like cigarettes (with clean needles and all). I was that stupid as a kid. I'm not entirely sure I'm not that stupid at times now (in other ways). ;)

paulseta: To many millions of Americans, Cory Monteith was the prophet of their crusade for musical equality. He was their voice of anguish, their eloquence in humiliation, their battle cry for human dignity. He forged for them the weapons of nonviolence that withstood and blunted the ferocity of music criticism.

And to many millions of Americans, he was one of a group of performers who preserved the bridge of communication between musical subcultures when musical differences threatened the United States in this decade, as Glee performers and their fans sought the full freedom pledged to them before by Lady Gaga, Madonna, N-Sync, and Milli Vanilli.

To the world Cory Monteith had the stature that accrued to a potential winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, a man with access to the White House and the Vatican; a veritable hero in the African states that were just emerging from colonialism.

In his dedication to non-violence, Monteith was caught between Glee and normal music extremists as musical tensions erupted into arson, gunfire and looting in many of the nation's cities during the summer of 2013.

Militant Glee fans, with the cry of, "burn, baby burn," argued that only by violence and segregation could the Glee fan attain self-respect, dignity and real equality in the United States.

PsiChick: Given that there weren't people there, and the media didn't mention the cause of death, it was probably suicide. That leaves a) mental illness, b) long-standing issues, or c) drug-induced stupid. A and C are the most likely unless someone comes forward with a story about B. Drugs  will make you suicidal in some cases, and with illegal drugs,


Huh? The media hasn't mentioned a cause of death because the police quite specifically said during their press conference that "there was no obvious cause of death". That actually suggests it was not a suicide because he didn't hang himself, shoot himself, slit his wrists, or anything that would be an "obvious cause of death." In other words, he either died in his sleep or collapsed in his room.

He got back to his room really, really late, and somehow his heart stopped. Given his almost 20-year history of substance abuse, it's more likely that he had a bad relapse post-rehab, or was felled by some undiagnosed health condition that took him by surprise.

I wasn't fond of his Glee performances, but it seem by all accounts he was a genuinely decent person and all around good guy. He seemed to have a positive outlook and a bright future ahead so this is definitely sad and disappointing news, and must be devastating to his family.
