This study describes a population of deceased persons in which death was generally caused by ingestion of numerous drugs, of which diazepam was only one agent. This drug occurred with high frequency relative to the total case load at each site, but its toxicological importance was often of a low order, and its role in the fatal cases was judged as minimal.
