    38 is too young. Very sad to hear this.

    38 and several heart artery blockages? That's fucked up. I can't tell if that would be the real COD but surely his drug addiction had to factor. Coke addiction sounds probable.

    Or genetics. Drugs will fuck up your heart but I doubt they’ll block your arteries.

    Hmm, I looked it up and here's what I found:
    The more prominent drugs associated with cardiovascular disease are the stimulants and opioid drugs. These may increase the risk of vascular and/or heart disorders by disrupting the balance of certain neurotransmitters, called catecholamines, in the body and brain. This may lead to dose dependent changes in blood pressure, abnormalities in the normal rhythms of the heart or blood vessels, increased blood clotting and increased arterial plaque formation3. This may result in abrupt, albeit often temporary, deteriorations in patients with conditions related to these effects3. However, this may increase the risk of serious events such as heart attacks, especially with long standing abuse.https://americanaddictioncenters.org...-heart-disease
    So, if their info is legit (and the citations do look credible), it's possible the drugs helped clog his arteries if he was a long-term habitual stimulant/opioid user. At any rate, way too young.
