According to reports, pitch-man Billy Mays was high-strung for a reason and that may have led to his death.

A mighty shocking autopsy report concludes cocaine contributed to the sudden death of pitchman Billy Mays back in June.

The report, which was released today, lists “cocaine use” as a contributing cause of death — along with hypertensive and arteriosclerotic heart disease.

A Hillsborough County press release says “from the presence of metabolites of cocaine and the absence of cocaine itself, it was concluded that Mr. Mays used cocaine in the few days prior to his death but not immediately prior to death.”

….Official documents show the following drugs were in Mays’ system — hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (painkiller), alprazolam (Xanax), nordiazepam (Valium), benzoylecgonine (byproduct of cocaine) and temazepam (anti-anxiety). Ethanol — alcohol — was also in Mays’ system.

Quite the cocktail there Billy. All respect to the dead, but does this really surprise anyone?

My man was through the damn roof 25/8. Nonstop. He was like my dog’s tail with the Pavlov reaction as soon any word starting with the letters ‘W’ and ‘A’ comes out of my mouth. And now, despite all his achievements, he will be remembered as just another celebrity who died from drugs, whether he actually did or not. SMH.

Friends of the famous, weed carriers or, shit, just people in general…keep an eye on your folk. Everyone is someone and you don’t want that someone you care about to die from stupid ass shit like this.
