    The Monkees' Davy Jones had a marijuana-like drug in his system when he died in February at the age of 66, so say the toxicology reports.

    The autopsy results indicate the singer died after suffering a severe heart attack. Jones also had cannabinoids in his body; they are similar to marijuana. We didn't know what the hell they were, either, at first.

    Despite the presence of the substance, it did not factor into his death. He also had congestion in his lungs.

    R.I.P., Davy.
