Short Summary of Dr Levounis testimony from today:-

He testified the MJ was addicted to Opioids - in particular Demerol from 1993 to his death in 2009.

Dr. Levounis said MJ doctor shopped to keep his supply of medications when his doctors expressed concern with the amount he used.

MJ was secretive about the amount of medication he was taking and kept that information from his doctors.

Dr Levounis testified the 5 criteria were 1. he show evidence of tolerance for Demerol so he took more.

The Doctor also testified that MJ would take more than the dosage recommended and there was evidence he was renewing prescriptions often.

The Doctor testified that MJ was Doctor shopping - that if he couldn't get the medication he wanted he could go to another doctor.

MJ tried to cut down on his drug use but relapses. In 1993 goes to rehab in England - evidence of demerol use in 2003 and in 2009

MJ showed evidence of physical and social consequences - he passed out at a meeting and his brother Randy tried many times to intervene.

Finally, MJ couldn't stop despite the fact he knew he was damaging his health..the desire was too powerful.

after the lunch break and a delay because of Juror 7 not feeling well, testimony resumed.

The last point Dr. Levounis made is that MJ and several of his Doctors had very close friendships and that was a problem.

The close relationships made it easier for MJ to ask for medications and it is harder for the Doctors to say no.

Under Cross examination Dr. Levounis went over the time that he reviewed the materials sent to him for his expert testimony.

Dr. Levounis testified that one of the symptoms is secrecy and yet MJ announced to the world that he had an addiction and sought treatment.

The final point under cross was that addiction is no longer used as a term to diagnose because not specific and the negative connotation.

Now, people are diagnosed with substance use disorder!!!
