    I am shocked to hear about Toms passing. I use to work with him in 94 he was a great person with a good heart and warm smile. May he RIP

    More and more people are dying from prescription medications and Mammoth is not an exception.. Recent deaths in Mammoth should be a reminder to us parents to talk with our kids about the dangers of commonly used prescription drugs. pain meds, sleep aids, anti-depressants, and alcohol that people are taking like they’re candy can kill you. Look for healthy alternatives. Exercise is a great way to boost your mood…get out in the sun, and consider seeing a mental health practitioner if necessary. Prescription drugs are rarely the answer, other then for an acute health issue. NOTE. I do not know Tom or what killed him. These are just meds that I know have killed other people

    acute narcotic intoxication;
    Would that be heroin, cocaine or some other narcotic made by pharmaceutical companies?
