The drug found in Kobe Bryant’s system during the autopsy suggests that Laker’s legend may have had ADHD
A drug found in Kobe Bryant’s system during his autopsy suggests that the former Los Angeles Lakers star may have had ADHD. The autopsy report, the details of which were released last week, confirmed that all victims of this fatal helicopter crash had died of blunt trauma on January 26, while confirming that pilot Ara Zobayan had no drugs or alcohol in his system at the time.
Per ESPNBryant’s report claimed that the only drug he had on his system at the time was methylphenidate. The stimulant is sold under the brand name Ritalin. It is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorders and narcolepsy.
Not surprisingly, the results sparked a lot of internet speculation.
That the drug was found in its system suggests that the late symbol was probably taking it for ADHD, which is defined as “chronic illness with attention deficit, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness”.
Of course it is nobody’s business. But now that it’s out there, people are curious.
