Another shocking revelation that an incredibly wealthy athlete with the funds and ability to do and get anything he wants is involved in something unbecoming.

“He had a drug combination similar to a speedball,” forensic pathologist Burr Hartman
A speedball, in street drug parlance, is typically a mixture stimulant (in many cases cocaine) and depressant (typically heroin or morphine). Such combinations have been a major factor in the increase of drug-related deaths in the USA.
That combination of morphine and amphetamine looked 'odd'. And that would lead to sleep issues - hence the insomnia drug (Ambian generic).
