*California lobbyists are using the example of Michael Jackson’s death to push for a law restricting the use of Propofol.
Referred to as “Michael’s Law,” the legislation was crafted by a group of people who have all lost loved ones to the misuse of Propofol, a powerful anesthetic that has been linked to the King of Pop’s death.
The group has been going door-to-door in L.A. and Santa Barbrara — handing out leaflets that describe the drug and how it killed Jackson, TMZ reports. Their goal is “to prevent doctors from making careless choices, and stop them from administrating drugs that should not be administered outside of the hospital setting.”
The Drug Enforcement Administration has announced it’s considering tighter restrictions on Propofol.
