Michael Jackson’s death is set to spark a clean-up of Hollywood – campaigners are calling for tighter laws on the use of the powerful drug that killed him.
The Thriller star died in June last year from a cardiac arrest after receiving a dose of the anaesthetic Propofol.

Now activists in California have launched a bid to overhaul legislation and restrict the use of the drug, according to TMZ.com.

A group of campaigners, who have all reportedly lost loved ones to Propofol, are calling for “Michael’s Law” and are handing out leaflets in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, California urging residents to join their bid “to prevent doctors from making careless choices, and stop them from administrating drugs that should not be administered outside of the hospital setting.”
