Yes, Bradley overdosed on heroin. After he had Jakob in early 1996, he decided to check himself into rehab for several months and was clean during that time. He overdosed on may 25, 1996.

I haven't heard anything about rat poisoning. Sometimes, people spice heroin up with rat poisoning to make it stronger so I guess its possible.

More specifically, they add strychnine.

meth has been known to be cut with strychnine. it's not to "spice it up" it's to make it go further.


but he died because he was clean and he did it how he used to when he was used to the drug. it's like... you build up a tolerance for alcohol... and then you have to drink a whole hella lot... then if you stop for a really long time, you only need a little. if you picked up where you left off, you'd probably get really wasted and sick.

drugs are the same.

but some of them will kill you.
you will never ever SEE SUBLIME. it's heart and soul died in 1996.

that moonshine can kill you too.

I don't know about that tar out on the west coast but china is cut with fun shit like sleeping pills, quinine and powdered milk.

I heard that Brad had been starting to use heroin again after shows with the "bad" crowd. On the particular night he overdosed, he was doping on some stronger asian heroin, as compared to the mexican tar he was used to. Its like getting used to shots of vodka, then doing shots of moonshine.

i saw the play... i mean, it could have been off, but from what it portrayed... he had been clean until that night... and decided to party it up. but, it was probably stronger than he was used to. or maybe i remember it wrong. but, i'm pretty sure it was like "one last party" type thing... and it was strong, and he did it like he used to and fell out.

china white is much stronger than black tar. that would definitely explain an overdose.

In addition to that, his body allergicly reacted to the foreign substance, and caused his lungs to fill with fluid, which effectively drowned him.

All this is true but I don't think he drowned in his own fluid. Your respiratory fuctions slow down to the point that your heart stops because there isn't enough oxygen getting to the vital organs and you go into respiratory distress. Maybe if the other band members were awake they would have found him before it was too late. It's such a very sad sad story.

i thought he died from asking stupid questions and not doing research
