“Jarad has struggled with addiction to prescription drugs”
According to the info from TMZ, Juice Wrld thought to have ingested a large quantity of oxycodone after having learned that his business would be searched by the police : they found in his luggage, codeine, weapons, and thirty pounds of marijuana. The rapper could therefore well be died of an overdose, such as Mac Miller, but for the moment, the autopsy gave nothing. In any case, his addiction to drugs, opiates especially, and cough syrups, was not a secret to his family, his loved ones and for his ex Alexia Smith.
“We liked Jarad with all our heart, and we can’t believe he left so early. As he has often said in his music and his fans, Jarad has struggled with addiction to prescription drugs. Addiction knows no boundaries, and its impact goes well beyond the person who is the combat. Jarad was a son, a brother, a grandson, a friend, and much more to so many people who wanted more than anything to see him overcome the addiction, “explains the mother of Juice Wrld, Carmella Wallace, TMZ. The artist had even planned to follow a therapy to fight his addiction, just before his death.
