Whitney Houston's cause of death revealed

The Los Angeles Coroner just released their finding on Whitney Houston's cause of death. Via The Washington Post:
The L.A. County Coroner's office issued a toxicology report this afternoon that said the official cause of the pop diva's death was: "drowning and effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use."

Under the section "How injury occurred," the report — issued to multiple media outlets, including the Post — stated: "found submerged in bathtub filled with water; cocaine intake." The manner of death was deemed accidental

"Cocaine and metabolites were identified and were contributory to the death," the document states. "Marijuana, alprazolam (Xanax), cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) and Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) were identified but did not contribute to the death."
Wait a minute, cocaine? This is the first I've heard of that. Are they sure they didn't mix up the toxicology results with someone else?
