The man who allegedly dealt Mac the deadly pills has been charged by California prosecutors.

It’s crazy to think that in just a few days it will have been a year since the passing of Mac Miller. The rapper’s on Sept 7th passing, was ruled an accidental drug overdose.

Today TMZ reported that the alleged drug dealer that supplied Mac with counterfeit oxycodone pills has been charged in connection with the death. The man has been identified as 28-year-old Cameron James Pettit. The pills that he allegedly sold to Miller were laced with fentanyl. Fentanyl is estimated to be approximately 100 times stronger than morphine.

Prosecutors say Mac was attempting to by “percs” also known as percocet, which are a painkille containing oxycodone. Pettit allegedly sent a direct message via Instagram to friends that saying he “probably shouldn’t post anything as a reaction [to Mac’s death] ‘just to be smart’.” Following that, when someone asked how he was doing authorities say he responded “I am not great … Most likely I will die in jail.” Pettit was taken into custody this morning.
