Basically, the MD was allowing the medicine to drip and LEFT it.
That medicine should NEVER be given outside a hospital setting. It is most certainly NOT a prescription medication.
That means MJ was hardcore!
Honestly, I'm probably the biggest MJ fan around here, but I have no qualms in somebody saying the dude was messed up. Conrad Murray may have had a responsibility to monitor Michael, but MJ knew he was killing himself. The sad part is he probably didn't care. Normal people don't need those drugs just to get some sleep.
