So sad. Prayers for all of his family. 🙏🏻

in 2017 Melissa admitted she smoked weed with her two oldest kids.

I think it is an absolute crime against humanity that Big Pharma and the so called doctors who prescribe them are allowed to push these opioids to the people. Hundreds of thousands of lives are lost for no reason, except greed.

RIP Prince: thank U 4 a funky Time!

I'm wondering when she says opioid does she mean pills or something else like heroin? If it was pills I'd be curious to know how he got started with them in the first place. I wonder if there were pills around the home he had access to.

Yeah. It is. She's been doing her daily/nightly concerts for 2 months now, of which I watched almost every night and it's been fun. And then tragedy hits. I wonder how that is going on from now on. Has to be horrible to carry on, either way. With her life and whatever else she's doing.

The crime is, that people never seem to learn. It happens time and time again. Also that these celebrity kids always seem to have some drug problem.
