A video has come to light allegedly showing Marilyn Monroe smoking marijuana. As this blog has shown, drugs and celebrities do not mix well, especially when bathrooms are involved... But to me it would seem all the more remarkable if evidence were found that Marilyn did not smoke marijuana.
What does need more investigation, however, are the repeated allegations that Marilyn did not die of an overdose but that she was murdered by the insertion of an enema laced with barbiturates.
Not that this method of assassination is anything new: it was particularly pronounced in Paris in the latter half of the 17th century where the best people were wont to undertake three or four enemas a day! The numbers of the nobility dying in this way eventually forced Louis XIV (1638-1715) to establish a dedicated agency to counter this threat.
