STP Frontman Scott Weiland’s Tour Bus Was a Rolling Pharmacy

Scott Weiland, who was the lead singer for the rock band, Stone Temple Pilots, passed away in his sleep on a tour stop in Bloomingon, Minnesota on December 3.

Weiland’s name was no stranger to tabloid headlines regarding his rampant drug use, and the search warrant following his death was right in line with those news stories. The tour bus contained an entire stash of drugs ranging from hardcore narcotics to prescription painkillers and erectile dysfunction meds.

Police found at least two bags of cocaine, a generic version of Xanax, two kinds of sleeping pills, Viagra and Buprenorphine, which is a synthetic opiate painkiller. They located one bag of a “green, leafy substance.” (Most likely it was marijuana.) Police also found Ziprasidone for treating Weiland’s bipolar disorder.

According to the police documents, all of those drugs were found in a bedroom on the tour bus. (Weiland’s body was found in a bedroom, too, but his name did not appear on the document.)

Weiland is survived by his wife, Mary Forsberg Weiland and his two children, Lucy and Noah.
