Dr. Edwin Katskee was 34 when he intentionally overdosed of cocaine. He wrote down his reactions on the walls of his office to describe what a cocaine overdose felt like.
Press at the time thought he intended to end the experiment before he died.
There were signs that he wanted to commit suicide, but he wrote on the wall that he did not intend to kill himself.
The Doctor said that it was his way of contributing to the medical and scientific archives. At first his handwriting was firm and even, and then became a scrawl. He said his eyes were growing dimmer and his heart dimmer. After, his tongue became paralyzed and he noted a 'staggering gait' when he walked. His mind was so confused that his voice seemed ok, but no sound came out. The coroner pointed out that the Doctor was a known narcotic addict.
