My Thoughts on Chris Cornell’s Death

Although many are already concluding his death was a suicide, suicide in my eyes is an intentional act to harm oneself and I believe there is more to Chris Cornell’s death. Some questions need to be asked about pharmaceuticals being safe enough to be on the market already. I understand there are procedures and policies in place, but I think the standards need to be raised. More research needs to be done before these drugs are spun off into the public’s hands in my opinion. We have yet to truly understand the human brain, so how can it be possible to treat ailments we know nothing about? It is not possible and it is just a guessing game. But why? More funding needs to be put towards research. Less lives would be lost and not subject to this sort of socially engineered guinea pig construction.

Chris Cornell had taken Ativan before his death. An anti anxiety drug. I can only speculate if he had taken too much or perhaps mixed it with alcohol.  My question is: If alcohol is legal, and even a sip of it combined with certain medications (especially anxiety medications) can be lethal, then why are these being prescribed so often? Think about how many people consume alcohol and might have a medication that could interact with it, unknowingly or knowingly? I bet if a study was done on this in detail, it would be alarming.  What if it was not intentional that he harmed himself?  What if he was completely blacked out? How much alcohol was consumed (if any) and mgs of ativan in his system? Would just an overdose of Ativan cause suicidal thought and/or tendencies? This might be an uncomfortable subject for some out there, but this has to be addressed at the possible root causes? I do not simply believe a man with a beautiful wife and two beautiful children, suddenly has a downward spiral in one night and chemistry has absolutely nothing to do with it? Even if it was his own hand that put on the band, was it his own will? Think about the question. It might be troubling but we need to research and develop lower risk treatments so people do not end up tragedies. There are too many brilliant minds that now have no voice, who just wanted help.
