Rush Limbaugh arrested then plea bargain link Snippetrosecutors previously were investigating prescriptions that Limbaugh received from Florida and California doctors between March 2003 and September 2003, when he allegedly picked up 1,733 hydrocodone, 90 OxyContin, 50 Xanax and 40 time-release morphine pills. but also in 2001 Snippett:After those prescriptions dried up, Wilma Cline found another drug source for Limbaugh, she told the tabloid, getting him at one point After those prescriptions dried up, Wilma Cline found another drug source for Limbaugh, she told the tabloid, getting him at one point 11,900 pills in a four month period in 2001. period in 2001. So the question is and it is settled now, that Limbaugh was heavily under the influence. Should all he has commented on during that time be discounted as someone equivalent to being drunk or is what he said still valid even under the influence of heavy opiates??? to be fair to Mr. Limbaugh he did check himself in after his admission also it is to be noted his very high priced lawyer Roy Black was able to get a Plea Bargian. But the question has to deal with the time he was under the deep influence of opiates.
