Whitney Houston had died

Whitney Houston has died.  What an amazing voice.  What a terrible loss of talent.  I extend my sympathies to her family, friends and fans, including me.  But the headlines around are death are:

Whitney Houston yet another victim of pharmaceutical drug industry

She was found with prescriptions of Xanax, Valium, and Ativan plus a sleeping pill in her hotel room. So the blame is the drug industry?  Or is that just what gets the headlines?  Let’s see, didn’t Hitler use these kind of tactics against the jews, blaming them for what was wrong in society?

Let’s get real.  If the same doctor prescribed all three benzodiazeprenes and a sleeping pill, they must not have been directed to be taken at the same time.  They probably weren’t prescribed at the same time, or even by the same doctor.  Of course, we don’t have the results of what was in her system, and probably won’t be privy to that information.  But it doesn’t matter.  The damage is done.  The public again blames a pill for the actions of a person. 
Comments were made in articles that her behavior was off, that she acted moody.  I wonder if anyone close to her informed her doctor of these behaviors?  Probably not.  They probably watched her under the effects of too many meds, and did nothing.  But the pill and the medical treatment is to blame.  What’s wrong with this picture?
