Chopra reveals he has refused in the past to prescribe the star strong medication, and blamed "drug peddling Hollywood doctors" for feeding his need and causing his death.
In a passion-fueled interview with news network CNN, Chopra listed the drugs he knew Jackson was taking, including strong painkillers Demerol and Oxycontin, the latter dubbed 'Hillybilly Heroin'.
Chopra said, "Michael spent a week with me and at one point asked me for an prescription for a narcotic. It certainly dawned on me he was already taking these and had a number of doctors who were giving him these prescriptions, so I confronted him with that. At first he denied it, he was in a lot of pain, he said he had back pain and I knew he had muscular aches and skeletal pains from the stress he was going through. I said, 'Michael you don't need this...'
"There are a plethora of doctors in Hollywood - they are drug peddlers, they are drug pushers they just happen to have a medical license and I hope this episode today, this tragic death of a great human being will bring to light this problem.
"I will be bold enough to identify these people at a certain time but I think the police should do their own investigation."
When pushed on the drugs Jackson was taking by host Wolf Blitzer, Chopra replied, "At one time I knew about Oxycontin. I knew that he would get injections of Demerol and other narcotics. I was really desperate to try and help him but you can't help somebody who is going to deny it. In my belief, from what I know, he was (addicted)."
According to TMZ: Jackson's nickname for the Demerol injections - "health tonic".
Jackson suffered a cardiac arrest on Thursday and was pronounced dead that afternoon, aged 50, after being rushed to UCLA Medical Center in California.
His body has since been transferred by helicopter to the coroner's office in downtown Los Angeles, where an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death is taking place on Friday..
New reports suggest a cocktail of seven prescription drugs could have triggered the Thriller hitmaker's cardiac arrest - a shocking similarity to the 1977 death of Lisa Marie's iconic father Elvis Presley, who famously battled drug addiction and died of a sudden heart attack at age 42.
In a posting on her MySpace.com page one day after Jackson's death, Presley writes, "He knew: Years ago Michael and I were having a deep conversation about life in general. I can't recall the exact subject matter but he may have been questioning me about the circumstances of my father's death... At some point he paused, he stared at me very intensely and he stated with an almost calm certainty, 'I am afraid that I am going to end up like him, the way he did.' ... I promptly tried to deter him from the idea, at which point he just shrugged his shoulders and nodded almost matter of fact as if to let me know, he knew what he knew and that was kind of that... 14 years later I am sitting here watching on the news as an ambulance leaves the driveway of his home."
Presley also blames herself for failing to help Jackson avoid the fate he predicted, adding, "The person I failed to help is being transferred right now to the LA County Coroners office for his Autopsy... All of my indifference and detachment that I worked so hard to achieve over the years has just gone into the bowels of hell and right now I am gutted..."
And Jackson's sudden death has prompted Presley to finally clarify reports her 1994 marriage to the pop star, which lasted two years, was staged for publicity.
She adds: "Our relationship was not 'a sham' as is being reported in the press. It was an unusual relationship yes, where two unusual people who did not live or know a 'normal life' found a connection, perhaps with some suspect timing on his part. Nonetheless, I do believe he loved me as much as he could love anyone and I loved him very much... I wanted to 'save him'.
"His family and his loved ones also wanted to save him from this as well but didn't know how and this was 14 years ago. We all worried that this would be the outcome then.
"He was an incredibly dynamic force and power that was not to be underestimated... When he used it for something good, It was the best and when he used it for something bad, It was really, REALLY bad... Mediocrity was not a concept that would even for a second enter Michael Jackson's being or actions...
I became very ill and emotionally/ spiritually exhausted in my quest to save him from certain self-destructive behavior and from the awful vampires and leeches he would always manage to magnetize around him. ... I was in over my head while trying..... I had my children to care for, I had to make a decision...
The hardest decision I have ever had to make, which was to walk away and let his fate have him, even though I desperately loved him and tried to stop or reverse it somehow...
"As I sit here overwhelmed with sadness, reflection and confusion at what was my biggest failure to date, watching on the news almost play by play The exact scenario I saw happen on August 16th, 1977 happening again right now with Michael.
"He was an amazing person and I am lucky to have gotten as close to him as I did and to have had the many experiences and years that we had together." (WENN/JMA/AWS/IG)

A cocktail of seven prescription drugs triggered MICHAEL JACKSON's cardiac arrest on Thursday morning (25Jun09), according to new reports from Los Angeles.
The pop superstar, 50, was pronounced dead at 2.36pm local time after falling into a deep coma at his home in Holmby Hills, California.
Reports suggest paramedics who were called to his home found Jackson unconscious and unable to breathe, and rushed him to UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles.
And now, celebrity magazine Life & Style reports Jackson was hooked on prescription drugs in the months before his death.
A source tells the publication Jackson had been popping pills, including anti-anxiety drugs Xanax and Zoloft and painkiller Demerol, for weeks before his death.
And an insider tells Life & Style Jackson took a suspected overdose of drugs on Thursday morning, which caused respiratory and cardiac arrest.
The report follows comments made by Jackson family lawyer, Brian Oxman, after learning of the pop star's death.
He hinted the icon was killed by an abuse of prescription drugs in an interview with CNN, and likened the pop star's death to that of tragic star Anna Nicole Smith.
He is adamant the Thriller singer's death is down to the people who surrounded the star, and he believes an "abuse of medications" is the reason for Jackson's untimely demise.
He explains, "I believe (his manager) Frank DiLeo was with him at the time (of his heart attack), that is what I have been told.
"This family has been trying for months and months and months to take care of Michael Jackson. The people who have surrounded him have been enabling him.
"If you think the case of Anna Nicole Smith was an abuse, that is nothing compared to what has taken place in the life of Michael Jackson.
"I do not know what medications he was taking, but the reports that we have received within the family are that they were extensive.
"I don't know the cause of all this. But this is something that I feared. This is a case of abuse of medications, unless the cause is something else.
"This was something which I feared and something which I warned about. Where there is smoke there is fire." (WENN/KL/LS/LR)
