Yes, but the movie portrayed homosexuality as an okay thing.

(Well, I haven't seen the movie, but I've read the short story it's based on).
It's thinking...

He obviously had a drug problem. No one takes two types of opiods (Oxycontin and Vicodin, come on) and three types of benzodiazepines for any legitimate reason. Mixing oxycodone and one type of benzodiazepine alone is extremely dangerous.
"Mr. Heath Ledger died as the result of acute intoxication by the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam, and doxylamine," the office said in a short statement.

I was legitimately taking xanax, xanax xr, valium, darvocet, lexapro, and lunesta (Eszopiclone) at the same time. It's easy to get over medicated.
