Best Answer

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.
