Whitney Houston's cause of death is still unknown, and there has yet to be a toxicology report, but some, even family and friends suspect that drugs may have been a factor. Authorities confirmed on Monday that she was submerged in a bathtub when she was first discovered on Saturday afternoon at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. An odd scene for a willing victim to just drown in that fashion, however there was nothing suggesting vowel play.
Houston is known for having a past with drugs, especially crack and cocaine which she openly admitted to using in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. In September of 2009 she told Oprah about how she would lace marijuana joints with cocaine for a heighten affect.
She told Oprah, "We were lacing our marijuana with base... you put it in your marijuana, you lace it, your roll it up and you smoke it."
"Your drug of choice was weed combined with cocaine?" asked Oprah.
"Cocaine, rock cocaine. Yes," Houston said.
Her constant struggles with cocaine and similar manufactured drugs was no secret, and most remember when her addition went public in the 90s siting her shared addiction with her husband Bobby Brown. Now some of those who knew the late singer suspect this weakness for hard drugs as a factor in her recent death. Recently on Access Hollywood, Tommy Chong from the famous comedy group "Cheech and Chong" made comment regarding Houston's drug use, and some are siding with his opinion.
"Had she just stuck to pot, she'd be alive today," Chong told Access Hollywood, "It's when you get into that other stuff... The trouble with that other stuff is that you forget you're high. You think you're taking a bath and you're not. You're under the water. It's a sad, sad thing."
It has yet to proven that drugs were a factor in her death, but friends like Chong wouldn't be surprised to find out it was. Ed Winter a L.A. County Assistant Chief Coroner told reporters they were doing routine toxicology tests. The results of the toxicology will influence the determination of the exact cause of Houston's death.
"It's a sad, sad thing. In a way, though, it was like she was saying goodbye," Chong added. "Like she was passing the torch onto Adele. It was a tough one to let go. It was like she came by and said, 'OK, I'm out of here.'."
Whitney Houston despite her bad decisions, will be missed.
