Pills, pills, and more pills. That's what's coming out of Michael Jackson's home.

Chief Investigator Craig Harvey told reporters yesterday that the Los Angeles County Coroner's officials have confiscated various prescription drugs from MJ's place.

Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter and his team were spotted leaving the deceased superstar's home yesterday with two large plastic bags. They removed "additional medical evidence as part of our work with the LAPD," Harvey said.

The Los Angeles Times is also reporting that the cops are looking for other doctors that had prescribed Michael his meds.

We already know that Michael's live-in doc, Dr. Conrad Murray, says he wasn't supplying Michael with OxyContin or Demerol, but what we didn't know was that the good doc had been working without board certification at the time of MJ's death. His most recent license expired in 2008.

Whoops.

Still, Dr. Murray's lawyer says his client did everything he could to help at the scene.

"The doctor rode with Michael Jackson to the hospital," Murray's attorney, Edward Chernoff, told Larry King Live. "He was in the hospital room. He worked with the doctors at UCLA to try to revive him. After he was pronounced dead, the doctor stayed in the hospital, spoke with the family members that were there at the time."

So, if he's not in trouble, why does he need a lawyer, Larry asked.

"You have a lot more faith in the justice system if you don't think he doesn't need a lawyer," Chernoff answered.

Comforting.
