It’s Official: Scott Weiland Died of a Drug Overdose

When we heard that Scott Weiland died in the back of his tour bus on December 3, many suspected Scott’s past substance abuse issues somehow played a part. It’s now official. They did. The official coroner’s report blames the root cause of Scott’s death on “mixed drug toxicity.”

Thanks to Pamela Chelin in LA for forwarding the toxicology report.

    What are the chances those trolls that called you a piece of shit 2 weeks back for suggesting Weiland’s death could be drug related because of his long history will apologize to you now?
