The whole online world now knows that Demi Moore was “smoking something” last week, and the act resulted in a “semi-conscious” state that left at least one friend in a panic.
That’s because the 911 call placed on behalf of the actress was released to the public, something that’s permitted in our justice something and something which befalls most celebrities who end up in the hospital.
But George Clooney doesn’t believe this should be the case. “I think it’s a stupid thing,” the actor told The Insider. “I think it’s stupid for anyone, whether they’re celebrated or not, I don’t believe their 911 call should be broadcast around the world, but that’s my opinion. What’s happening and what people have to remember is that people are getting famous from Facebook and Twitter, so it’s not just about people here, it’s about everybody. There won’t be any version of privacy. So it’s going to be a tricky thing.”
According to RadarOnline, and Extra Moore was most likely smoking K2 spice, a “currently legal incense product spiked with powerful designer drugs” that go undetected when the user undergoes a drug test.
Addiction specialist Dr. Phil Dembo believes Demi had smoked the spice, and explained, “The problem with synthetics of any kind is they can cause anxiety or depression and cause panic or hyperventilation type of experience. There is racing of your body and those things chemically take you over.”
Citing the Hunterdon Drug Awareness Program, RadarOnline goes on to report: “These synthetic cannabinoids have been associated with impaired driving incidents, attempted suicides, and emergency department visits, and have been linked to such adverse effects as increased anxiety, panic attacks, heart palpitations, respiratory complications, aggression, mood swings, altered perception and paranoia.”
Moore was rushed to a Sherman Oaks hospital last Tuesday after she experienced “convulsions,” and plans to seek treatment for her overall health, substance abuse and anorexia. Earlier reports suggested she had also been using nitrous oxide.
What are your thoughts, Should 911 calls be made public? In my opinion , 911 calls are usually made by people in dire need of assistance, celebrity of not. Making them a source of entertainment, could be crossing an ethical line. But these people are celebrities, so their lives are scrutinized more than the average joe. I think a legislation should be passed to keep 911 calls private from public.
