Prince Died From Fentanyl Overdose, Medical Examiner Confirms

It was revealed on Thursday (June 2) that Prince died from an opioid overdose, and now more details have been revealed via a statement from the Midwest Medical Examiner.

The Midwest Medical Examiner confirmed the tragic news, and tweeted a copy of Prince‘s death investigation report, which states that he passed away from accidental fentanyl overdose, which was “self-administered.”

The sheriff’s office will continue their investigation.

Fentanyl is an opioid, which is a class of drugs that includes painkillers. The drug is a synthetic opiate, and it is considered stronger than drugs like Percocet and morphine.

    125 Americans die a day from drug overdoses. Overdoses are now approaching the rate of death seen at peak of HIV epidemic, but people just yawn.

    Time to wake up ladies and gents and realize that this a serious problem not just in celebrities, but the general population as well.

    Too bad he wasn’t using medical marijuana instead of the horrible opioids. Haven’t heard of anyone dying from medical marijuana, and it gives much better relief than opioids (personal experience with cancer pain) and should be rescheduled and legalized across the country
