The Joker's Untimely Death / Do Not Say No To Cannabis

3 months ago

He earned his first Globe nomination for the interesting movie about the story of two cowboys who get to work together during a summer as sheepherders in the brokeback mountain area "Brokeback Mountain", when the "Gladiator" stood up for "Schapelle Corby", who was sentenced to 20 years behind bars for smuggling pot out of Bali.

He revealed that he enjoyed Prague's high-quality pot, during the filming of "The Brothers Grimm", which he called "Some of the most psychedelic #Marijuana on earth". He and his ex-girlfriend, "Naomi Watts", were once involved in a cannabis snafu in Vancouver when their dog, Bob, ate their #Stash and had to be rushed to a vet.

He managed to give viewers the greatest on-screen Joker of all time "The Dark Knight" which hit theaters the same year he died was the last movie he finished filming. The movie, where "The Joker" appears in Gotham, creating a new wave of chaos and "Batman" forcing him to "Confront everything he believes" and improve his technology to stop him.

He is "The Joker", who used to smoke five joints a day for twenty years. The cause of death was an accidental overdose, he died as the result of "Acute intoxication by the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam, and doxylamine". The substances in his system, as you see did not include cannabis.

The Joker / Heath Andrew Ledger

"Heath Andrew Ledger" was born in Australia, to mother Sally Ledger Bell, a French teacher, and father Kim Ledger, a racecar driver and mining specialist. He found a passion for playing chess.

At the age of 10, he won "Western Australia's Junior Chess Championship". It was around this time that he found an interest in becoming a stage performer, as he performed the lead role in Guildford Grammar School's production of "Peter Pan".

His parents would separate, before getting divorced when he was 11. At age 16, he completed his early graduation exams, and he traveled cross-country to Sydney to pursue an acting career with his longtime friend "Trevor DiCarlo".

After various small roles on television, his feature film debut came in 1997 in the emotional drama "Blackrock". This led to a starring role in the historic fantasy series "Roar", costarring "Keri Russell" and backed by financiers in the US.

In 2008, after completing filming on "The Dark Knight", he died as the result of an accidental prescription drug overdose. He received a posthumous "Best Actor Academy Award" for his performance as the Joker.

The Joker & Weed

Yes. He did smoke #Weed, he was an avid cannabis consumer and used to smoke it on a regular basis, it used to be a big part of his life until he felt it was keeping him from his daughter. He said, "I used to smoke five joints a day for twenty years". He then points to a tattoo dedicated to his daughter and added: "That’s a reminder for me not to smoke weed"!

Ledger’s Tragic Death

Most of us know, he battled with fame, a failed relationship and incurable insomnia in the lead-up to his untimely death, so why he said no to #Cannabis after 20 years, daily use! He didn’t seem opposed to abusing prescription pills and other more harmful narcotics before he died.

Maybe he didn’t know what most people now know about #Pot today, or the negative stigma and the fact that cannabis is illegal caused him to believe that smoking weed was bad for his daughter. It would appear that the talented actor - with a touch of manic depression disorder - was setting the table for disaster.

His sister sensed as much and this is why she tutored the genius/child heath about the dangers of mixing Booze and Pills. Sadly, the "Legal Drugs" he used are what took him away from us. Many people still rely on prescription sleeping pills like Ambien while the safer alternative is kept federally illegal.

The Joker's Death should be a reminder of the fact that many legal prescription drugs are far more harmful than cannabis which remains federally illegal. Cannabis has been used to treat #Insomnia, and it is impossible to overdose on weed. The death of the talented actor was completely unnecessary and avoidable! Do Not Say No To Cannabis...

He was the Legend. Joker character will always be remembered by his name now.
He actually took that character to a new level and made sure that the character "Joker" stays in the hollywood forever.

That's why there's still debates about Ledger or Nicholson. And now with Joaquin Phoenix there's yet another contestant.

And all three were just as good because casted in totally different times/character roles. A Ledger performance wouldn't have fitted in a Tim Burton movie and he would have been too vibrant for Todd Philips' movie.

Just like Romero would be laughed at nowadays but for the Era of the TV series was solid casting.

Joker will always be Joker, and every so many years there will be another actor delivering an awesome performance because the character is a fit for the best character actors.

Totally agree with you, many people with culture still depend on legal drugs to treat insomnia, depression and similar patience being aware that they generate a strong addiction and serious damage to our body but prefer to avoid the use of cannabis but the simple fact of stigmatization Social and who will say, we must say enough and begin to raise awareness of people who do not surround, very good article good fumes

Great post, one of my favorite actor.

That’s a great point.

Great post....
