The weed was stashed in suitcases onboard the flight.
Although it’s unclear what kind of pills the 21-year-old rapper took, witnesses claimed Juice had a problem with Percocet. A bottle of codeine cough syrup was also found on the aircraft by police.
Juice suffered a seizure in the airport hangar after arriving in Chicago from Los Angeles and was rushed to the hospital where he passed away. It is not yet known if drugs played a role in the rapper’s death. No cause of death has been given, and an autopsy has been scheduled for Monday, Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Two men also aboard the plane, Chris Long and Henry Dean, were arrested for possession of handguns. A total of three guns were found aboard the plane.
Juice opened up about his addiction on Twitter back in June when he publicly vowed to his girlfriend, Ally Lotti, to stop using codeine.
