Elvis' drugs were prescription, which is why he didn't think of himself of a drug addict. But the reason I think Elvis Presley did drugs is because he had so much money that he had everything he wanted, and he just wanted to try something new.

I disagree. Elvis was not stupid enough to try something new for something

to do.

In the Army (1958-60). He was given "uppers" or amphetamines by his superiors to stay awake during maneuvers and the Army was responsible for getting

him started on the drugs that eventually killed him.

No, Elvis Presley was never a member of the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangers Drugs. He wanted a badge from the bureau when he visited President Nixon.

Heart attack. The main factors that caused his death are: * Diet: Elvis was known to eat a lot of "junk food" which is unhealthy. * The use of prescription drugs. Elvis took many types of prescription drugs, and this caused his health to deteriorate. * Obesity: When Elvis died, he was considered obese (obesity increases the risk of a heart attack).
